Match Report: Still smoldering from the lack of spark we showed last week we knew today’s game was season defining against the red hot runaway leaders Hazo
Dunny and Paulie had been on fire at training on Thursday – there were cones all over the pitch which always keeps them happy. They had continued the theme right through the night and into the next morning. They both had a certain glow about them when they arrived for the game
With a full squad available for selection, selflessly Sean stood himself down to act as Manager for the day with The Gaffer away for a few weeks
To break the pensive mood The Bearded Lady had brought his boom box and his favorite tunes started playing – The Prodigy’s Fire Starter was ironically on as Dunny and Paulie walked in the sheds; and as Pirate arrived the end of the chorus of Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince’s ‘tick, tick, tick, tick boom’ of Boom! Shake the Room.
For the first 20 minutes or so we played with fire in our bellies and seemed to have the upper hand. Tolly’s head took a battering from the opposition winger’s face that left the winger covered in claret – we hope the injury is not as bad as it looked. A well taken goal by Hazo put them in front. We pressed hard looking for an equalizer but were hit by three goals in five minutes just before half time that left us badly burnt
At half time Sean said we needed something to re-ignite our belief – a spark if you like – Dunny and Paulie didn’t know where to look
Second half was much better – The Dentist extracting one from a great Tolly cross. We had more chances but a counter attack led to a penalty as Paulie, fired up, exploded into his opposing player.
Post game and the Pom and Pirate gourmet sausage in a roll was in full swing although questions were raised by the Pirate on the value Pom brings to this set up….to be discussed Thursday evening
Like Dunny’s pool fence our chances of winning the league were extinguished today …
