Gast FC 1
Thirds played Gast, the current leader of our group. Despite a good fight and solid performance we lost 2-1. It took us a few minutes to get into the game while Gast started well and got the opener on their first opportunity with a header from their striker after a good cross from the right wing. We progressively were occupying more their half but they stayed solid till half time. On 2nd half they added a 2nd one after a clinical counter attack. We managed to reduce the score thanks to Brendan 5 minutes before the end. We pushed for the equaliser and had them very nervous but it was not enough. Final score 2-1.. Though there was possibility to get a better result, we showed great spirit and we will keep the same dynamic in order to stay in 3rd Division. Man of The Match Brendan.
3rds arrived at the league leaders pitch determined off the back of a woeful performance last week. Sometimes that’s what it takes to push a squad to another level, and we found our level today with probably our best performance of the season. The first half could’ve gone either way, both scored nice goals that were ruled offside and we held our own throughout, but went in at half time 0-0. The second half was very much the same, we were always in the mix and created a couple of great chances, one just over and another diverted by a fingertip save. The only difference being that of the couple chances they created, one was well hit and found its way into the net. Final score 1-0 loss, but plenty to be proud about in very difficult conditions and against a very solid team. Keep this spirit and we’ll surely start getting the results that have been within our reach. VAMOOOOOOS!!
