Funny old game...
By Andy Rhind
These games won't win themselves!
... football. As captain Alex led his men out this morning we had a good feeling (thanks Andrew!) But the Greens never quite got into top gear today. In the first half the Greens showed a couple of glimpses of the stuff that wins games; a couple of good shots from Lachlan and a great free kick from just outside the 'box for ringer Maxwell which was stopped by a save not short of miraculous. Despite pressure from Leo and Miles and some good defending from Henry and Alex, we finished the first half a goal down.
The second half saw more chances for the Greens with Lachlan having half a dozen shots in the vicinity but never quite managing to find the goal, and a couple of good runs to within shooting distance for Miles. Newcomer Maxwell and Leo had good stints between the sticks but we lost our shape and pace giving the visitors the chance to slot home another goal before full time.
So, plenty to reflect on and to work in training. We were caught out of position at the back and that didn't go unpunished. Let's learn from it and kick on Greens!
