Coin du balais FC 2
Vets 2 came to the historic Trois Tilleuls stadium in Boitsfort with a task at hand easy as mount Mt Everest on a wheelchair. The opposition is strongly challenging for promotion, so this was not going to be easy. In the glorious sunshine it started quite evenly, until Mick Lamot had to go off injured. We lost the defensive shape a bit,and they fired up their howitzers from outside the box, eventually proving too hard for a brave Laurent in goal.
It turned very onesided and it could have been double digits if the opponent did not decide to throw in the granddads in second half. 8-0 in the end, let’s all go to the bar.
Vets2 played top of the table Coin du Balai, who hadn’t dropped any points yet. We started well and Xavier scored for us after 10 minutes. They got a bit nervous and we got a couple more chances, but then they turned on the pressure and scored an equaliser just before half time. In the 2nd half, a couple of injuries and our overall fitness levels made it difficult for us, and we conceded 5 goals. But everyone fought till the last minute. End result: 1-6
