ESPZEN SS Blue 's Match Report
ESPZEN Blue team were looking to continue their good form against second placed Football Plus. Once again the aim for the blue team was to try and keep the ball by playing the horseshoe pattern which they started to do in previous weeks. Both teams Struggled to keep the ball in large parts of the game and it was a game more about hard work and team work. Ujawa and Arjun in defence were trying their best to keep hold of the ball and switch play, and when they did the blue team looked confident and created opportunities with some good combinations between Michael, Greg and Zac. The first goal however came from sheer hard work from Michael who won the ball of a defender and smashed the ball into the roof of the net with his right foot. With the game finely poised at 1 - 1 ESPZEN were awarded a free kick, to which Naike scored from a Greg lay off to win the game in the last minute.
After the game captain Greg and the team spoke about the need for better communication and to not be afraid to turn and play backwards. Also they realised that spreading wide from the goalkeeper allowed for space in the middle and tasked themselves with trying to get the wide players on the ball in the middle of the pitch in the next game.
MOM was given to Michael for his positive dribbling and creating options for a pass
