4ths began 2023 with an away game playing against a high scoring rival in Maccabi. On a windy and wet pitch, it was clear from the off that some champagne was still affecting the legs of many, and 4ths struggled to get into the game. A deflected free kick gave the opposition an early lead. The opposiont quickly capitalised and scored another before half time.
After a rousing half time chat & some changes to the team, 4ths dominated most of the 2nd half. One goal was recovered by Draga following a pass by Nick. 4ths pressed for an equaliser, and even though we hit the bar, could not quite put the ball in the net.
Final score 2-1 loss. Fabian MotM
We still don’t know how but 4ths won their second game of the season today.
Not the best game of football but a great fight and those victories taste even better.
We conceded the first goal after a free kick but came back on the game quite quickly.
We conceded again after a free-kick (we know what to work now 😅) just before HT. 1-2.
3 minutes before the end of the game we equalized and were already happy with a point today. But just a minute after they scored and took the lead again 2-3 after a 25m shot that lobbed Christian. They had their moment of joy, making fun and laughing at us.
We didn’t give up and…the miracle happend: 3-3 at the start of the extra-time with another equalizer from Fabi.
And the winning goal at the very last second of the game from Vitalii after an assist from Manu. Karma…and a very nice start of the season for the fourths.
