Copains Réunis 1
The 3rds played against Copains Reunis today in what was our third home game in a row. The objective today was to build on our win last week and well and truly put our blip behind us but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
We started slow and allowed our opponents to develop a pattern of play that suited them. An own goal after 15 minutes put us 1-0 down. We responded well and played some of our better football today in the last 15/20 mins of the first half but couldn’t quite create the opportunities needed to get an equaliser.
The second half was a frustrating one, we couldn’t develop our normal patterns of play and especially struggled to find that final pass in the attacking third. Our opponents held on well and played to their strengths. Some good saves from Ale kept the deficit to just one. Overall we couldn’t find the answers, looked lost, found the pitch was a mismatch for everything we tried to do and the substitutions perhaps further disjointed us in the end. Final score 0-1. MOTM PA and Ale.
