Game 11 of the season saw us take on Goodfellas who we were yet to play and who are doing well in the Legal League.
Having only 9 players at kick off we welcomed back a few players who haven’t played for a while Oz and Dan, and a few new players Sam and Stef.
We started off with the following formation:
D: Woody and Oz
M: Rich, Jens and Randy
Starting off the brighter of the two teams we took the lead through Jens who scored a nice goal. After a few shots from us they hit back and scored a great goal from their female player after some slack defending from Rich.
Joe then went onto score to make the score 2-1 at half time at a quick paced frenetic first half where we had quiet a few shots but couldn’t seem to score many. Stef and Oz were playing excellently at the back in the first half and mopping up everything whilst the midfield worked hard to close them down.
In the second half Woody came into centre mid, Dan came on at the back and Oz went to right wing with Rich and Randy on the bench.
The 2nd half we played a lot better and towards the end had the majority of the ball. Jens scored to make it 3-1, then he scored again with a great driving run and hard shot to make it 4-1. Randy and Rich came on for Oz and Joe and shortly after Woody made it 5-1 with a good header from a corner and Randy blasted it in almost knocking down the keeper at the same time to make it 6-1. They had a dubious penalty given to them which Sam saved in great fashion after having a commanding first game in goal. Joe finished off the game with a hard worked goal sneaking it over the line to make the final score line 7-1 to the Spartans.
Man of the match was Jens who just got the node ahead of Joe for an excellent performance, driving runs and a good hatrick.
