Grez AJ 1
1sts had a bad day in the office. We had a good start with high pressure and dominating in midfield with good combinations, from one side to the other one, but without clear chances to score. Grez were counter-attacking and they got gold in their first attempt: cross and nice unstoppable half volley. Trying to come back to the good track, we got even more frozen five minutes later when we conceded a goal from a silly defensive mistake. Sigve got a clear chance to short the gap, but the finish went high. 0-2 half time. Clear message to correct: show stronger defensive mentality and push 100%. We gave everything in the second half, we dominated the game and moved the ball forward, but it was difficult to concretize the chances. They accumulated many defenders around their box and short-circuited very well our attacks.
Final score 0-2, bitter result, difficult to take, but with useful lessons for the future. Keep fighting.
1sts had a very hard fought & much deserved 2-0 win in the depths of Wallonia today, started the better team playing some lovely football, went 1 up after a lovely move involving Alex, Isaac, James, lovely cross from Thomas, Arjan finished brilliantly at the front post. Had other chances, 1 up at HT. Second half they came more into it but we still threatened, Ricard with 3 outstanding saves on his debut. Bono got a red card for a last man tackle but the 10 men stood firm & sub Mo scored on the break after great work from Arjan. A great victory, 1 to 13 outstanding.
