The game started with FCB moving the ball well. We pressed high and made the opposition make mistakes regularly. Sadly that ran both ways at the beginning. Jordan and Ed pressed and won the ball well on the left and Rama kept it quiet on the right with some calm defending. Foxy pressed across the front with Luigi in hot pursuit. Then a corner was given. Zak stepped up to swing it in and naturally had a dig, not the first time he scored from the corner and it won’t be the last. 1-0.
The second half began with total dominance from FCB and we attacked at will. Their fast forwards were no match for the stalwart defence. The second came through Calum who volleyed home a cross from Jordan. 2-0. Time for some fresh legs. Foxy came off for new Andy and Rama off for Macca. This change kept the pressure on and they couldn’t hold out forever. Macca had a shot from distance but to no avail. Then it happened, Zak slotted the ball into the far corner. 3-0. Alvaro on for Alberto and Rodgers came on for Ed and then the onslaught began anew. Macca burst into the box and cut back for Zak who came very close to his hat trick, the ball sailed wide by a hair. The barrage of assault continued until the referee called time on a game that would only have one team coming out on top, a performance the score line does do justice.
