Goals: Scott, Cowley, Patrick

With kick off 30mins later than expected we managed to get 12 to the pitch having had a few late dropouts.

With the opposition also short on numbers we started with 11 v 10. Good early pressure with TonyC and Sanj getting stuck in in midfield we had most of the possession and used the width of the pitch and saw a few early chances for Cowley & Scott with Scott turning a defender nicely before shotting across goal from outside the box 1-nil Spartans.

 
As the half progressed DKFC now with 11 players started to dominte posession with their number 26 dictating play from midfield and their speedy #10 breaking through a few times, however our back line of Flabbo & Thomas in the centre, Stef left and Chi right saw off most of their advances and our new (hopefully regular) keeper Andrew mopped up on other ocassions when we were left short as they hit on the counter attack.

Just one change at half time with Patrick on for Nic with Scott moving to left wing. Early pressure saw a high ball from Sanj headed on by Patrick for Cowley to slot home 2-nil Spartans. DKFC continued to dictate the pace of the game leaving us resorting to long balls upfield, as they hit back they netted them 3 goals in the space of 15 minutes.

 

With 10 minutes to go Flabbo pused up into midfield and we started to spread the balls down the wings, with an extra stage in our attach we firing in shots from all sides with Scott and Cowley coming close in 5-6 ocassions and Sanj forcing a great save from just outside the box. With a few minutes left on the clock Cowley drew the keeper out to the side of the box before crossing across the face of goal for Patrick to calmy slot home the equaliser and the ref blew up shortly after.

 

Squad: Andrew (GK) Stef, Thomas, Flabbo, Chi, Sanj, TonyC, Nic, Ed, Cowley, Scott (Patrick on for Nic 1/2 time)
