Deja vu as Panthers beat Chipstead

The last tournament of the summer has seen the Panthers beat Chipstead in the final for the second consecutive year.

Three wins and a draw in the group stages, with 13 excellent goals along the way, saw Panthers top their group with a single goal advantage over Chipstead.

With both Panthers and Chipstead winning their semi-finals an eagerly waited final was to follow once the rain subsided. 

As expected, a closely fought contest saw both teams having chances but with two very good goalkeepers on show half-time came with the score still 0-0.

Panthers then scored straight from second half kick-off – the ball knocked forward early for a close range well taken goal.

The rest of the half saw some really excellent defensive play and counter attacking against an Elite team, with the Panthers deservedly holding on for a victory.
