ESPZEN SS Black 's Match Report
An awful start by ESPZEN saw us sat back in the first 8 mins and try to remain compact, which we did, however we forgot one important aspect of football - mark the players... for 8 mins LFS ran rings around us and deservedly score a goal. This woke the team out of their slumber, and against the run of play a quick counter saw Lou pin point pass to Oktu who was brave to beat the on rushing keeper..... The goal gave the team confidnce, we settled down and then began to play the football we know we can play....8 more chances didnt hit the net... but the team was showing great desire, determination and intelligence in their play.
2nd half we just had to keep playing the way we finished the 1st half, and we knew the goal would come... and indeed big ryan on a mazy run forward from centre half hit a thunder bolt and gave their keeper no chance, the 3rd goal was the icing on the cake with jonan and lou combining and a rocket from jonan hit the top bins.
A great game to watch as both LFS and ESPZEN played some wonderful football at times.....
Man of the match was tough this week given great performances by Lou, Big Ryan in particular but Jonan on his debut won the award from Captain Ryan Thomas for his work rate and determination.
