#1 September 11, 2021 FC Irlande Men 3 1 - 3 Report Patjes FC
After a tough first game last weekend where FCI3 lost 5-2, our second game of the season got off to an uneventful start with both ourselves and FC Patjes alternating in spells of possession.
Mid-way through the first half Patjes managed to get the opener with a through ball between our two center backs which led to a 1-on-1 opportunity that was well taken. We managed to collect ourselves, retain more of the ball and see out the half without conceding any other chances.
For the second half we began in control, holding the ball well and creating a number of good chances. After 12 minutes, a quick throw by Wilf deep in opposition territory found its way to Jaime who slotted home past a scrambling goalkeeper. The 3rds capitalised on this confidence after the goal by creating a number of half chances. Unfortunately, in committing players forward in search of the winner we were left thin at the back and conceded two very unfortunate goals late in the game on counter attacks.
Maxime claimed man of the match on his debut after a dominant physical performance at the base of the midfield – destroying the opposition’s possession and launching our attacks. He continues to vindicate his nickname ‘Mad Max’ and we’re glad to have him in the team for this season.
Overall an improvement on our previous performance but with a lot of work to do this week in training.
