Away | 03 December 2017

TEAM: Mikey, Lucas, Alex, Korniliusz, Jack, Laythan, Leon

 SUBS: April


We arrived at Maccabi a good half an hour earlier than kick off time so we could get a good warm up and get the giddiness out of the lads before we start. We knew they beat us last time but we were the better team!we knew we were capable of winning this game! The warm up was poor and it took a while to get the lads settled and focused on the game ahead of us! 

 WERE OFF!! We start the game strong a great performance all over the pitch passing moving making space everything we’ve been working on and it was fantastic to watch. About 15 minutes in and..... 

GOAL!! Korniliusz slides a cheeky ball into the box and it’s a peach for April to tap in! Get in!! A great way to start!! 

 HALF TIME TALKS were only 1-0 up. We need to continue as we left off.

 And within 5 minutes Laythan takes the ball in the middle of the park runs past 2 defenders and ploughs it in the bottom corner!! GOAL!!! 

From that we had chance after chance that we just couldn’t finish! Hitting the post twice and the bar and their keeper being on good form. 

 our defence was on fire all the way through they just couldn’t get through. 

Maccabi managed to bring 2 goals back the second being 1 minute from full time! A decent free kick in the edge of the area! 


 As much as we practise for this scenario it all comes down to focus and a bit of a gamble. Unfortunately we got beat 2-1 on penalties some great saves from Mikey even after being studded. In the leg and a great penalty from Laythan who scored our only one. 

 a great performance and definitely didn’t deserve to lose. We were unlucky and we thought near the end that we had it in the bag. That will teach us to stay switched on right until the final whistle.
