Latest results

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.

FCI 3 went into today’s game looking to extend their unbeaten run to 9 games. FCI 3 applied pressure from the start but couldn’t get the breakthrough. There were many breaks in play and yellow cards that really stunted the flow of the game. FCI 3 eventually took the lead 20 minutes in through a free kick played from Matt and headed in by Max. FCI 3 went 2-0 up moments later from a shot outside the box by Shane. Copains Reuins dropped their heads in the 2nd half and FCI 3 added two more to make it 4-0. Shane with both to make it a hat-trick. The game became quite disjointed after this and and FCI 3 eased off with their intensity. Copain Reuins scored a free kick and added another shortly after to make it 4-2. It was a wake up call for the 3rds who realised that the game wasn’t over yet. FCI 3 maintained their composure and saw out the game for a good win overall. Final score 4-2. MOTM Shane
