Southside held scoreless in loss to Woodland

Woodland FC showcased their dominance once again as they completed the double over Southside FC with a commanding 3-0 victory on Saturday, June 16th. In a match where Woodland became the first team this year to hold Southside goalless, the visitors asserted their authority from the very start.

The game got off to a dreadful start for Southside when Woodland's relentless pressure led to an early goal within the first few minutes. Woodland's aggressive and clinical approach saw them netting two more goals by the 30th minute, putting Southside on the back foot early on.

Compounding Southside’s woes, Tony was sent off after receiving two yellow cards for dissent in quick succession. The situation worsened when Zach Murphy, from the bench, was shown a straight red card for dissent as well. This left Southside with only 10 men on the field for the remainder of the match.

Despite the numerical disadvantage and a demoralizing first half, Southside displayed resilience in the second half. They managed to regain some composure and tightened their defense, preventing Woodland from extending their lead any further. Southside even carved out a couple of chances, but unfortunately, they were unable to capitalize on them.

The match concluded with a final scoreline of 0-3, marking a significant win for Woodland FC. Southside FC, on the other hand, will need to regroup and address their disciplinary issues as they look forward to their next fixtures.
