Match Report: A rare treat for us Sunday day-walkers playing on a humid Wednesday evening under lights at Glenmore Park. And an even rarer sight with all 16 lads kitted out and warmed up well before kick off, not quite knowing what to do to kill time awaiting the first whistle.
Dre used his usual magic 8-ball to randomly allocate players and positions, with Ads finally getting a start up front after a good year or so of whinging that he is not a fullback.
We had all the possession and all the running from the start, getting in behind the line at will and our midfield of Skinner, Ghost, G and Rusty dominating. After a few chances we were rewarded around the 30 minute mark when the aforementioned whinger was put into space by Rod, closing his eyes and netting one – Ads finally breaking his Blueys duck, but devastated he didn’t celebrate the achievement by doing ‘that’ Robbie Fowler goal celebration as promised.
But Glenmore kept pushing and capitalised on a couple of unlucky errors at the back. Down 2-1 at half time.
The situation became bleaker as Glenmore went 3-1 up 5 mins into the 2nd half, but like a beagle at the airport, we kept our tails up and knew we could sniff out something special.
Ads was soon gifted a second goal off a wayward Glenmore pass and then put Skinner through not long after to slot away a nice 1 on 1 with the keeper. The scoreline now locked – all hail magic 8-ball.
We couldn’t quite find the game winner – a few wayward shots and Skinner opting not to pass to a free Marty on far post (as we saw plenty of times last season – and will continue to see – potential new team fine category?). Finally, Felts was put into the clear on far post, but his 1st touch was more awkward than a bad tinder date, the resulting scramble ending with the ball falling to Skinner to hit an empty net.
A tense last 5 mins as we held our lead. Special mentions to Steve parrying away a certain goal and to Macca for sacrificing any further chance of having kids by using his tackle box on near post to prevent their equaliser off a dangerous corner.
Good win, fellas!
