- Maccabi Phoenix 3-2 Typhoon
Where were the home fans? Thank you all for coming out to support your kids, I know it means a lot to them.
Another game I can't believe we've lost, we certainly didn't deserve to but once again one player has caused carnage against us. We need to work on ways to counteract these players, as it's hurting us too much and too often. We hit him a man at a time instead of hunting in a pack and it's something we will work on.
On the positive side there were some very good performances around the pitch, Daniel and Cole were very threatening down the flanks and Cole added another brace to his account. Pete and I never had a doubt he would score after outpacing his marker and racing in from about the half way line. Others had more difficulty finding the back of the net and between their keeper making a few excellent saves and some profligate finishing, we didn't manage to get the scoreline we deserved.
I can't fault the effort of the boys, Harley got an elbow in the face, Jamie and Peter bangs on the knee. There were a few shouts for man of the match but Peter pipped it from Cole, adding his willingness to put his body on the line to some great saves.
I'm happy that we have a nice team here where everyone contributes as opposed to just making up the numbers for the star.
