Our final 3 games of the season and the boys were gunning for all 9 points to finish strongly in their inaugural J league season. First up Football Plus who we drew 2-2 in our last outing. The boys started tentatively and for the first few minutes of play, Football Plus controlled the game and was more dangerous. The match ignited when a simple back pass was collected by Football Plus goalie. Despite, the call for a free kick, the referee waved play to go on. In the resulting Football Plus attack, they almost scored if not for the timely intervention of Gideon.
Our first goal came after the resulting corner was punched clear by Ethan and Kayden released the ball to Nishanth in the middle. The ball was passed to Max and Max worked his way to the right before passing to Nishanth who has managed to find space on the right. His beautiful cross just evaded the head of Wayne but Kayden ran in from the blind side on the left to volley the ball into the back of the net for 1-0.
The next 10 minutes was evenly contested with shots from both sides but the goalies stood firm. The key talking point came when a looping corner by Kayden on the left, was met by a diving header by Nishanth. The ball was on its way into goal when it hit the arm of the defender on the line. Incredibly, the referee again allows play to go on much to the disgust of the BB fans. An exchange of words ensued between the referee and fans. Despite the poor refereeing, the boys pressed on and 2 quick succession of corners almost resulted in goals. First, Wayne narrowly missed his header and second, Kayden’s corner was heading for the top corner until the goalie somehow punched the ball clear.
It was perhaps right that the 2nd goal should come from a corner. Again it was a wonderful corner from Kayden on the left but this time even with a defender on the line was not going to deny Nishanth’s wonderful header into the top of the goal. By then we were in control and had a few shots on target that were well saved by the goalie.
2-0 it ended and the coach awarded the Man-of-the-Match to Kayden for his goal and contributions from the corners.
