Today did not go our way. From the warm-up we lost 2 with injuries and another was needed to referee (big thanks to Matt for taking on this thankless task, for which he got 2 MOTM votes!). So from a squad of 15 we were down to 12 by kick off. Nevertheless FCI 3 were the better team in the first half and went 1-0 up through Gavin. There were a couple of other opportunities that might have strengthened our lead but didn’t find the net. Second half was not all bad but Bouks got the equaliser quickly enough, then a second and in our efforts to get one back by putting more men forward in the last ten minutes, they exploited the space left behind and closed it out with a third goal in the last few minutes. 1-3 loss in a game we probably should have got something out of.
Good day for the 3rds with our first points of the season. Went 1-0 up in the first half, Paddy’s corner headed in by Max, and made it 2-0 in the second half after good pressing up front won us the ball and Jaime quickly put it on a plate across the box for Shane to finish. A few late chances escaped us and it stayed 2-0. Great team effort, solid at the back and middle. MOTM second week in a row was Max, Shane a close second, and a number of team votes with everyone putting in the effort for a good win.
