Bar Los Timbales 2-5 FCB Bunwer
Rami’ lads won their second game on the bounce this morning away to Bar Los Timbales thanks to goals from Gomm, Langan, Carling and a brace from Ishmael Majid. Again, the brits made their lives difficult with substandard defending, first going a goal down early in the game, then later giving away a 2-1 lead. With FCB in the ascendancy, there were some handbags after a horror tackle from Bar Los Timbales on Ishmael Majid which saw them reduced to 10 men. Ultimately though, the brits superior strength and creativity won through and they continue their hunt to stay in the top 12.
Match report from Michael Langan
“Fresh from an encouraging win last Saturday, FCB Bunwer looked to take another step towards a top 12 finish with an away fixture against Bar Los Timbales. FCB lined up Yea, Tom, Don, Ojo, Reece, Michael, Nick, Chaz, Ishmael, Bini and George. FCB started sluggishly, and resorted to the back to front method of play which has troubled all season and thus again it proved the case. The opening twenty minutes were somewhat turgid, with neither side offering any real threat or indication of quality. However, after a routine ball wasn’t dealt with in the FCB backline, FCB found themselves a goal down after a smart finish eluded the oncoming Matt Yea. While FCB were playing well below their capability, being a goal down was a little harsh. From here, however, FCB rallied and began to become more positive, and were rewarded when George slammed home an equaliser from the edge of the box.
