Panthers – Sunday 20 September 2016 – Home Game -v- Oakhill Tigers
With all that drama yesterday not really sure where to start the match report.
First a thought for Jacob. We all wish him well and hope he has a speedy recovery. Also on the subject of the walking wounded since you all keep asking me about Jack I can report he is starting a course of physio and we shall have to see how well he responds to it. I’ll keep you all informed of progress for both Jacob and Jack as and when I have more news.
So our first win of the season !!!
2-0 up – a Farzan goal then one from Samuel – that will teach Oakhill Tigers to set up 3-3-4 against us !
By all rights we should have scored at least another 3 but didn’t.
Then Jacob gets injured and we lose all our momentum and get a bit rattled. We give away 3 goals … Not forgetting Saul saved a penalty and got a yellow card for time wasting (the tigers manager asked the referee not to put it through which was a nice touch).
Then just as I thought we were going to lose the match Farzan bursts through to score his second goal and we go on to penalties.
Lots of drama – Saul having already got his eye in saved three more and yes a WIN. Hopefully that cheered Jacob up as we waited for his ambulance which arrived just as the game ended.
We showed a lot of character by coming back to win this game…now we have to get into a winning habit. So onto next week and the home derby against the Tigers. A must win game – no complacency allowed – there is plenty of room for improvement on this week’s performance.
Result – Home Win: 3-3 & then 3-2 on Penalties
