Match Report

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

SUBS: Laythan, Lloyd 

 MOTHERS DAY- BACK TO WINNING WAYS 

Didn’t really know what to expect today. We’ve had the turbulence within the team due to the separation etc, and we had another tough game yesterday in the league. 

First half begins and it’s very sloppy, the play and the pitch it just wasn’t good enough overall. We were 1-0 down at half time after a very unlucky own goal. 

 HALF TIME talks tells the lads that this is a cup game and we’ve got to try harder. We’ve got to fight to deserve the win. There were several things not going for us such as bad referee decisions and a group of lads kicking a ball into our pitch whilst we were playing. But we knew we had to focus and play our game. 

 Second half we start strong, poor Alex was exhausted and was suffering with a bad ankle and a stitch. Not good considering he was having a decent game other than that. But jack steps in to the role and worked his socks off to make it an easy enough substitution. 

GOAL!! 15-20 minutes from the end Laythan slips past 2 Maccabi defenders and shoots an absolute rocket from 25 yards out! Easily goal of the season so far in my opinion. 

The last bit of the game seen a different Barr hill team and playing the way we know best passing moving and lots of shooting. Unfortunately, no more goals came.

 PENALTIES: 

Maccabi step up first and score a decent penalty to be fair 

Then Laythan, bet your bottom dollar he was going to score after the goal he already had. But their keeper made a fantastic save. 

Maccabi score again 

Then Jack steps up. Not confident as he missed last time and puts pure power behind and loops it just over the bar. 

Maccabi are now 2-0 up. Honestly I thought it was game over. 

 BUT THAT WASNT IN MIKEYS PLAN! 

Mikey saves the next one very comfortably 

My left foot champ Lucas steps up and fires it into the bottom corner. No messing. 

Mikey saves the next one from Maccabi he was in his stride. He was showing everyone how good he is! 

Korniliusz next. No messing. Very simple. Power, strength, force, goal. Typical Korniliusz style 

2-2 if Maccabi miss, its all down to Lloyd. They step up. The kid didn’t look like he could handle the pressure and Mikey read this! 

Another top save!! 

LLOYD! Up you get it’s all on you. After scoring an own goal, he knew exactly what he had to do. And he didn’t disappoint! Get in!!!!! The result we deserved at long last! 

Just goes to show all the long range shooting we have been doing in training pays off and the penalties against Mikey, it’s just another day in the office! 

HAPPY MOTHERS TO ALL THE PARENTS. I HOPE THE BOYS HAVE HELPED YOU ENJOY YOUR DAY!
