- League V Deans Panthers
A chance to get back at Deans after the disappointing result a couple of weeks ago..
With lucas and Mikey missing our defence was at full stretch. So in stepped Will in goal and Robert covered Mikey. Both were superb and worked really hard for the team. Is there a position Will can't play? So a big thanks to them for playing out of position.
On to the game and we started very well, the back 3 looked solid, Josh and Zane were getting stuck in and Matthew was offering great support in attack for David..
A hopeful shot from Matt caught the keeper out and sneaked in the bottom corner to give us the lead. Soon after Matt played a great ball through for David to finish for his customary goal. That's 9 for the season already.
At that point we looked in control, Joel had come on for david and was causing lots of problems and working very hard, but Deans are a dangerous team especially on the wings, and soon enough it was 2-2. A brilliant first half which I think we just shaded.
Much of the same in the second half and with Joel still causing problems he got the goal he deserved. Deans again came back and made it 3-3. We had good chances to score the winner, Demi putting the ball just wide after some great football, and in the last seconds David flashed it acrodss the goal.
So after getting beat last time, we've come away with a draw and probably the better team
A great effort by the whole team and subs and probably our best performance of the season so far.
Well done everyone, things are looking up.
