TGA Legends Football Club 3 vs 3 GAS Zweite




This was a cracking match to watch. We started well but lost momentum when Matty's penalty was well saved by the opposition keeper, and the germans took the lead shortly after when our heads were down. Fortunately the keeper made amends shortly after by punching matty's corner straight into the net. We then had the better of the remaining minutes in the first half despite a good counter attacking goal from the germans, taking the game to 2-1 at half time. The second half was a balanced affair, with both teams creating lots of chances. Beech burst thru the defence and neatly finished to equalise before another corner saw Paul place a beautiful first time shot into the top corner. What followed was a frantic 20 minutes that saw a few injuries and cramps force us into some rapid positional shake ups, and unfortunately the ref saw fit to award a soft penalty to the germans with 5 mins to go. Fine saves from both keepers in the second half meant that a draw was probably a fair result - it could have changed by a number of things throughout the game.

It was an intense, fast paced and quality match against the reigning champions which saw our side having the upper hand in the first half. We took the lead thanks to Luzi's first goal of the season and showed a quick reaction after the equalizer as Benny brought us ahead once again. 2-1 it was at the break. The second half saw a much more determined TGA team which pushed us back into our half, initially withourt really threatening. However, after we missed the 3-1 from a three-against-two situation on the counter we got the equalizer instead: a long diagonal ball was watched in awe by our defense rather than marking the player the ball was targeted at who headed in effortlessly. MInutes later TGA used yet another lackadaisical defending when a player at the edge of the 16 yard box was complet;ey unmarked and had all the time in the world to pick up a corner and put the ball underneath the crossbar. A deseved lead was thrown away within a few minutes. It has to be said, though, that the team didnt give up. As TGA fell back to defend their lead we switched into an attacking 3-4-3 formation, allowing us to exercise more pressure. When Marco was brought down in the box the ref pointed to the spot and Benny got his second goal of the day.  3-3 was the final score. Cuong saved a enalty in the first half but man of the match was Benny who scored twice and was laways dangerous upfront. Thanks to TGA and we look forward to the rematch
