FNF 7 (0) 5 – 3 (2) AK All Stars
Sitting at the top of the league; AK All Stars knew that a win tonight would be crucial for their campaign to create a gap between themselves, Betel Nottingham and tonight’s opponents FNF7 once games in hand were taken into account.
The game started perfectly for the All Stars as they worked a two-nil lead in a competitive game before All Star’s Lee Bush saw red for dissent. With just three outfield players and 30 minutes left in the game, it quickly became a game of defence v attack. Somehow the score remained two-nil until half time.
FNF7 pressed incessantly but it was genuine luck which saw the first goal go in. Billy dragging a weak shot through James’s legs and with the keeper expecting a shot into the opposite corner; the ball bobbled inside the near post. And then the cracks widened; FNF7 taking full advantage as in scoring five goals despite Luke grabbing a second to briefly raise the chances of a miracle result.
All Stars were left to reflect on what could have been, but the referee has to be respected at all times and was well within his rights to show red; a lengthy ban awaits.
FRIENDLY: Betel 16 – 4 Real Tangiers
Only two things need to be said about this friendly – Craig scored and David got Man of the Match – It means a lot to both.
