So close to our first point of the season! A really enjoyable game with passion, quality and great goals from each side. OBs youthful side were full of tricks and pace and although we were 3-2 down at the half, we had created some great chances of our own and scored a beutiful team goal. At 0-0 we had the best chance at that stage with Tom Varney unable to convert a lovely ball to the back post.
Tom was on the score sheet shortly afterwards. We switched the play quickly from right to left on the half way line, Graeme Evans made a fantastic overlap from left back, made it to the byline then into the D and Tom converted his ball from close range.
Our second goal came from a driven ball into the D to which Jack got the faintist of touches. So faint the umpires had to to discuss whether or not there had been any contact at all.
Nick scored our third from close range after Jeremy had deflected a cross onto the far post but OBs scored their fifth shortly afterwards.
Simon scored our fourth, again from close range to set up a thrilling final 5 mins or so during which Nick nearly got onto a diagonal ball at the back post and it ended with an unsuccessful short corner after the final whistle.
Everyone played well but I'd like to say a special thank you to Graeme and Wayne whose performances were excellent.
I can almost taste 3 points. Will it be against the 3s next week?
