Typhoon 4-2 Moorside Rangers Green
What an advert for kids' football. Biting wind, muddy pitch and two teams going at it hammer and tongs. It's what Saturday mornings were made for. We knew Moorside were a good team, they've battered everyone so far and have asked to be promoted. Due to half term holidays we couldn't muster any subs but then neither could they.
We started off well and Jamie put us into an early lead. We battled well through the half but they started to dominate and it was no surprise when they equalised and then went ahead just before the break. Pete and I had a little chat and tweaked the formation, going back to two quick wingers and were rewarded when Daniel equalised after a goal mouth scramble. Then the game just really got going. End to end stuff, tasty tackles and some a little more than tasty, mainly on Jamie. Jamie got his own back smashing one past the keeper's despairing dive to give us the lead. Cue more end to end stuff with Daniel clearing one off the line. With time running out the next goal was crucial and when Joseph teed up Daniel inside the box for him to blast it home I was up and jumping. What a great performance from the boys and what a result. Milo was manfully strong against the opposition centre forward in a magnificent tussle, Joseph was all over the pitch and Jamie was a warrior throughout. Everyone put in a massive shift, it was great to see.
I just hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.
