3rds suffered their first loss of the season, losing a close game to 4th placed Charles-Quint. A looping effort just on the stroke of half time broke the deadlock. A few chances for both Quint and the 3rds were missed and the game became increasingly scrappy. FT 0-1.
FCI 3 were playing their first home game of the season today and went into the game still unbeaten.
Charles-quint started the better of the two teams and dominated much of the first half. Antoine pulled off a string of good saves to keep the game scoreless. 0-0 at half time. FCI 3 started the second half well but went behind from a corner 5 minutes in. The game needed a spark and the substitutions helped to change the pattern of play. Half way through the second half, FCI 3 won the ball back and looked to counter attack. As the Charles-quint goalkeeper was far off his line, Achraf tried an audacious lob from 40 yards. The goalkeeper scrambled back but the shot was hit perfectly and snuck in under the bar. 1-1. Contender for goal of the season.
FCI 3 came alive after the equaliser but Charles-quint went ahead again through a crossed ball which was headed in at the far post.
With 5 minutes to go, Charles-quint were very aggrieved with a foul given against them outside the box. The subsequent free kick was saved by their goalkeeper and went out for a corner. The corner was played in, fell to Ignasi whose shot was blocked on the line. Shane followed up on the chance and blasted it into the roof of the net. 2-2.
A Charles-quint player was red-carded at the very end of the game and FCI 3 pushed to get the winner but the game eventually ended 2-2.
