Vets1 scores first against tourinnois via a clever chip from Oli, only to see the goal ruled out for offsides (he was on). Tourinnois then scored the first official goal of the match before we equalised through Matt shortly thereafter. In the second half it looked like we were heading for a stalemate before they scored again with their second chance of the game. It ended 2-1, but we were denied a clear penalty (clear to the opposition as well) late on in the game which could have changed matters. A frustrating result.
Vets 1 lost 0-1 to ambiance Auderghem vets in a tight game in which I think it would be fair to say we had the better chances. They made the difference on one great move from their man up top who weaves his way past a few defenders and rifled it in. The first half was very even but we really took the upper hand on the second. A few very good interventions from their keeper, a few chances on which we could have done better… end result we didnt get the goal we needed to even up the score. As always live and learn and try to do better. Bla-bla-bla bla bla
Vets1 played forestois, one of the better teams in division 6a but one we came close to getting a result against last year. The first half was fairly close. They went 1-0 up on a rain soaked pitch, and then equalised for us (own goal). Scored a terrific free kick which even our hero of the day Paul J. Couldn’t do anything about. We conceded a few silly goals on the second half and then lost a bit of composure and they ran away with it Djokovic style (6-1). There are lessons to be learned from the mistakes we made and we’ll play better next weekend.
Vets1 started the season with a 4-2 victory over a mid-table team we fared quite well against last season (5-0 victory, 3-3 draw). It was a tight game, and we went into half time 3-2 up. They dominated possession at the start of the second half and we were only able to put the game to bed about 15 minutes form time with a penalty. Once again the hero of the day was Manu, 3 chances, 3 goals. Outstanding. Special mention for Euros who went to pick up two of our players stranded in the middle of nowhere after suffering some mechanical issues.
