The Cage Pitch 4

Home Hunt Football Club 4 vs 5 Purple Monkeys Midweek Football Club




Third result in a row where we have lost the points in the last few minutes.  

What a match for the neutrals, it had everything.  The lead changed 3 times, a penalty, an adventurous opposing goalkeeper, comic/tragic officiating and 2 goals in the last 5min.    After 3 defeats on the trot (Previous seasons last match, Cup and this seasons first match) we definitely needed 3 points to kickstart the new Season.  And following a rousing pre-match talk by the Manager we found ourselves 2-0 up with goals well taken by Tito and Borja (welcome back after a 7 year absence).  15min in and we were in a perfect position to see out the rest of the match.  Easy game - or so we thought.  Typical Midweek style, we took our foot of the gas and let HH slowly get back into it with the match heading into HT at 2-2.  We took the lead again when Polo decided to play a one-two with their keeper.  Easy rest of the match – or so we thought.  HH equalised and then 8min from time scored their fourth to take the lead for the first time.  Cosmo Joe managed to equalise with a curling freekick cross/chip/shot that eluded our entire team, the HH defence and fortunately for us, the HH keeper.  With about a minute to go, the winner came from Borja when a clearance from a corner landed at his feet and he managed to smash the ball in the bottom corner through a sea of legs.  Amazingly, only 1 of our goals came from a direct assist (Wrighty for Tito’s goal).  Second was a dispossession, third was a rebound, fourth was a foul and fifth was off a clearance.  Guess all that luck was used up with our 4 goals (Including OG Joes free kick) and none was left for Wrighty in front of goal.     Overall good performance from the team (including the defence – nothing could have been done about 3 of their goals) even though we conceded 4.
