1st Team Results

Mar 12

1st Team 2 - 3 Old Salvatorians
Date: 2016-03-12
Venue: Away

A frustrating Saturday was had by us. With the confusion on whether this was a home or away fixture playing in the background we struggled to get a team together for our last chance to secure 2nd place with this double header against a strong Salvatorians.

We had 9 players away and two only available for the 2nd match.

Match 1: Started with 11. But after 5 minutes we were down to 10 as a player decided to walk off and join his mates who were heading to the changing rooms. A mate of a mate played but was really not up to it so we effectively played with 9.5 players. Salvatorians had 16 lads in total....

They went two nil up quite soon and imposed themselves. I arrived along with Dwayne Francis at the beginning of the 2nd half. Dwayne went on and I then soon followed him. The game changed and we started pressing them and looking after the ball. We soon scored through some good wing play which resulted in Dwayne winning a penalty. Mike Ramsay, playing with a broken toe out of necessity, dispatched the kick. 2-1. We were all over Salvos and then a long ball over the top put Salvos through and they got back to 3-1. We kept up the pressure and scored from a corner that they could not clear and Jermaine Da Costa swiveled and volleyed in from close range. We put pressure on Salvos until the end but could not force the equalizer.

I had a chat with the referee during the change over as I was concerned about the decisions he was giving and how he was not managing the game in a safe manner. The salvos manager came over and gave the ref a 10 minute lecture...I do not know what was said but they were on good terms and the referee seemed to defer to the Salvos manager (see part 2)...
