ITT Gecko FC 2
Fourths had a weak start against Gecko 2. Low intensity led to Gecko scoring with their first chance after only 3 minutes. Slowly we gained control over the game and Draga equalised. A couple of missed chances, including a penalty, were punished by Gecko, who scored their second goal with their second chance.
After halftime, we continued to play patiently and subsequently equalised again. Peppe scored with an absolute banger from 30 meters. We continued to stay on top and could finally convert some of our many chances. Draga with his second strike, Michal, and Benjamin Verdin put 4ths three goals ahead.
Gecko could only convert a freekick in the last minute.
Overall a good performance with good team spirit. We never gave up despite being behind twice.
Final result 5:3 for 4ths.
4ths travelled north of Brussels to play ITT Gecko today with a strong squad, eager to get another 3 points.
Unfortunately the opposition had not come to play football but to defend, play tight, commit fouls and dirty tricks.
It was a tight game with not many chances for either team until the last 5 minutes. A late attack was launched which resulted in a penalty for FCI4. Fabian stepped up and did what he does best and finished it with ease. Big celebrations followed in anticipation of a win.
However, Gecko were not finished. The immediately attacked down their left wing, which resulted in the ball going obviously out of play. However, the referee inexplicably waved on and Gecko continued whilst FCI4 could not believe what was happening. A quick cross was immediately dispatched by Gecko for a literal last minute equaliser and broken hearts for the FCI4 boys.
An unfortunate draw and difficult to take in the circumstances but we soldier on!
