Match Report – 9.Blue – 16 May 2015

Match Report – 9.Blue – Game Date: 16 May 2015

BMFC 9.Blue:
vs
Springwood United FC Inc:

BMFC Goal Scorers: Connor G 2, Ben 2, Mason, Daniel

Player of the Match: Connor G

Match Report: Some fine finishing and hard tackling saw the blues win another, scoring 6 times and conceding none. The boys kept their shape well with Harry C keeping the defence well marshalled. After 10 minutes they were 2 nil up, Ben and Connor G finishing well.

The lads kept up the pressure and came off at half time 4 up. Second half produced the goal of the game with Ben turning and rocketing a shot into the top corner. Daniel’s perseverance paid off with a good run and finish to top it off.

Another great team effort but Connor G gets MOM for his wing play and two goals. Special mention to Connor S making his debut for the blues. Well done!

Match Report – 12.1 – Game Date: 9 May 2015

BMFC 12.1: 1
vs
Springwood United FC Inc: 1

BMFC Goal Scorers: Chris

Player of the Match: Damo

Match Report: We had the early start and with Keastie and Liam out were down to the bare 11 – thank you so much to Max and Lachlan from the 11/1’s for helping us out on the day

Having played Springwood in the trials we knew they were very strong in the midfield. Sam and Dom played centre midfeld in the first haf and did an awesome job nullifying this. Finn played out wide on the right to counter the Springwood speedy winger. Eli went in goal for the entire game and his assured performance gave plenty of confidence to the rest of the team

As expected we had to defend for large parts of the game but we ultimately did create the clearer chances as we countered very effectively. We had two goals disallowed for offside – one cured in by Chris after a short corner that was offside and second by Jake after he had been put through one on one with the keeper that was a bit more questionable

It was nil all at half time. Millsy and Finn moved to centre midfield in the second half and continued the great work done by Dom and Sam in the first. At the back there were excellent performances from Sam (one slide tackle that was perfectly timed saved a certain goal), Dom (brilliant cover in instance when Eli was out of position), Damo (playing at left back, not a natural position for Damo but he did brilliantly), Ash (deployed at centre back in the first part of the second half to sweep), Aiden, Alex C and Jake

We went a goal down haf way throught the second half. A tactical change moved Ash to left midfield and Aiden into centre back. This led to two or three great runs down the wing with crosses sent in by Ash in the last 5 minutes and Chris passing one of these into the net for the equaliser

A great team performance against a very good team. In the last two games the boys have put defence first, been incredibly resilient and then clinical once we created our own chances

Match Report – O35.1 – Game Date: 10 May 2015

BMFC O35.1: 4
vs
Glenmore Park FC: 0

BMFC Goal Scorers: Chicken (hatrick), Mick C (pen)

Player of the Match: I’m guessing it’s Chicken (tbc)

Match Report: After a long rain interrupted break, the Blue Mountains Over 35-1’s were ready to welcome their opposition to a liberally irrigated Knapsack Park. The boys from Glenmore Park had heard rumours about the ground once known affectionately as “Downtown Kabul”. Unfortunately they came unprepared with their all-weather all condition indoor soccer boots. Much to their dismay they were greeted with a field more green than Pommy when he heard of Davy Hayman’s selection in the Jambaroo Team.

A few men down, notably Hawkesbury who is still trapped in the top car of a broken down ferris wheel at the fair two weeks ago. Fortunately we were able to enlist the support between the sticks of our long term friend, Derek (the Angler) Page. There were a few moments of doubt as the barometer starting tipping 1010 at 9am, but fortunately the wind picked up which is “not good for fishing”, in the words of the goalkeeper himself. So he set himself to the task of catching shots, and crosses instead of his much preferred Bass.

Pommy was uncharacteristically late, having been given a false address on his long standing quest to deliver a set of football boots and shin pads to Chris Ackerley. Fortunately he arrived in time to not only get ready on time, but also to annoy the few remaining players getting ready in the changing room.

The players warmed up, looking around nervously due to the absence of coach and director of confidence, Joe. We were informed that he has embarked on a last minute scouting expedition to the North East of England. Reports are sketchy, but we are looking forward to the likes of Shearer, Gascgoine and Beardlsey joining our ranks in 2016. This will provide a huge boost to the beer fund as Gazza has confirmed he will be joined by his long standing reeve Jimmy Five Bellies. Move over Scotty Shields.

Zap, as usual, steps into a much needed role at a crucial time and with the help of his App, takes over team rotations. Young Sean Burns provides the inspirational team talk and Joe McCaffery is a thing of distant memory.

The game begins. Something about the team talk obviously worked. Chicken, inspired by the lack of derision in Sean’s team talk, steps up after 5 minutes and burgles a goal from the sweeper. Tail up and looking dangerous, follows this up 5 minutes later with a beautiful volley which left the keeper no chance. Kudos to Joey Crye for the through ball on this.
Blueys seemingly cruising to an easy win, seemed to forget how to co-ordinate their foot with the accelerator. A sniper attack on Danny Margetts, and a couple of other casualties left the Blueys wondering if they were going to run out of personnel. Glenmore sniffed the opportunity and finished the second half stronger, denied a couple of half opportunities. By this stage Derek (the Angler) Page had clearly gotten his mind around the fact that there was nothing going in his net today….

Second half. Things change. Blueys decide that it is their game to control and proceed to do so. Another goal by Chicken, to complete his hatrick and it’s 3-0. Notable assist by Paul McCarten. Then Paul goes down in the box and is awarded a penalty which Mick C converts with panache. 4-0 and we have control. The subsequent 35 pass medley breaks Glenmore Park and we can start looking forward to the coldies in the fridge.

Aside from a couple of back line hospital passes it is all plain sailing and uneventful from here.

A huge thank you to The Angler for a faultless performance between the sticks. A good tempered enjoyable Sunday afternoon was had by all. Thanks also to Glenmore Park for a game that probably didn’t require a referee.

Match Report – 9.Blue – Game Date: 9 May 2015

BMFC 9.Blue:
vs
BMFC 9.White:

BMFC Goal Scorers: Mason, Harry M, Ben, Harry C

Player of the Match: Mason

Match Report: A fine performance by the Blues winning against the Whites, who had several new players playing and gave their all. Blues went one up through Mason who went on to produce a great POM performance in defense. Harry M put some superb free kicks and corners into the box and scored a tremendous goal as well. Connor played his first game in goal for the Blues, but Patrick for the Whites was a star with some incredible saves. Well done to both teams for a friendly, exciting match!
