Colo Colo

Latest results

3rds had an unfortunate draw against Colo Colo United. Reinforced by the presence of Lennart and Nair, we had a great start and scored quickly two goals with two headers from Brendan and Timothee. We kept dominating but by the end of 1st half on one of their few attacks, Colo Colo got a free kick and reduced the score to 1-2. 2nd half was a bit more difficult for us, Colo Colo and though they never had any real opportunities they were a bit threatening. Alas a last minute free kick was converted with a lot of luck by our opponent who got the draw. A lot of regrets after the game but now more important is the two last games and we’ll be back fighting til the end.

A new look 3rds faced a strong team for their first game. Many debuts, 8 in fact, followed a summer of recruitment to rebuild the team after a number of departures and a few retirees moved to the Vets. Not too much else to say about match itself unfortunately, we lost 2-5 in what was for the most part a fairly one-sided affair. In the first half they were in control for large parts and went 0-2 ahead by half time through some well built attacks, but we changed formation and improved in the second half. We narrowed Colo-Colo’s lead after Wilf was taken down by 3 (yes, it took 3 of them, harder than he looks that fella!) in their box. Faz coolly slotted the resulting penalty past the keeper. It wasn’t long before we conceded a penalty at our end however for them to go 1-3 up. Before they got their last goal we showed signs of what we’re capable of with a good attack using the space on the wings for Timothé to feed a ball into the danger zone where, after some confusion in the area, Shane was on hand to get us a second goal late in the game, albeit only a consolation goal at that stage of the match. With a lot of new faces in the team we’ll need a bit of patience to get to know each other better. Looking forward to next Saturday!
