After suffering two morale-destroying losses, it was imperative that SFC got back to winning ways against what has been a very good RFC this season. Highlighting the team's eagerness to get in front of goal and leaving the back exposed, Manager Norman opted for a rather more possession-based system which proved highly successful.
SFC started off the game very patiently, and made the breakthrough early on when Simran slid the ball in for striker Mark (after a quality dummy by Ewan), who made no mistake with a well-placed finish. Shortly after, SFC made it two when team captain Luciano went on a crazy solo run past 3-4 defenders and stroked the ball past the keeper, albeit with a touch of good fortune on its way. However, RFC pushed back strongly and were more determined in the 2nd half, capitalising on some lax defending which made it 2-1. It was a nervy battle for SFC until striker Mark, again played through gloriously by Simran, rounded the keeper in a 1-on-1 and relieved the pressure off the players.
It was a quality display from both teams and a much-needed win for SFC. That being said, we wish Racing FC all the best for the remainder of their season!
