FC Jets 's Match Report
We witnessed in this game what the legendary Pele meant by ‘the beautiful game’. It was a game with all the exciting ingredients- a lot of one touch passes, running into spaces, sharp communication, good ball handling and excellent teamwork and of course beautiful goals. FC Jets played a ‘near perfect’ game. SMSA2 was a formidable worthy opponent, boosted by stronger and bigger forwards making the game all the more spectacular. James Porpora (7) drew ï¬rst blood at the 4th minute with a shot on goal, albeit being aided by a SMSA2 defender rushing in to block but bounced off his leg into goal. He returned the favour to Krish (11) by turning provider for the second goal in the 5th minute with a superb laser pass from deep after a layoff from the goalkeeper. Krish then ran at goal and did a 180 degree turn to lose the last defender before slotting in the goal. SMSA2 started bombarding into FC Jets half with a couple of dazzling solo runs by their outstanding striker. However the defence stood ï¬rm to nullify the attacks with Tyler (1) playing an outstanding game. The third goal put its stamp on ‘the beautiful game’ with James on the score sheet again. Dylan (4) did a quick pass back to James and he chipped a looping shot over the entire defence into the top right hand corner of the goal. With three goals in hand, a few substitutions were made to introduce fresh legs to keep up the pressure. Both Kazu (9) and Matty (5) were outstanding in their marauding runs at goal. Matty was unlucky not to have scored a hat trick. Matty’s persistence ï¬nally paid off by providing a beautiful assist for Aan (10) to score in the the 18th minute. Aan did a quick throw in to Matty in the centre of the ï¬eld. Matty then did all the hard work by turning away from his marker before laying off to Aan again for a perfect 1-2 to slot in the fourth goal. By this time, it was a little too late for SMSA2 to catch up. It was truly a beautiful game by both teams.
