JDF-55 Blasts Past Gordon Head-55, 6-3
September 30, 2018, 12:00pm, Lambrick Meadow

JDF 55 players assembled in the drizzle at the edge of the meadow that is Lambrick and prepared to take on Gordon Head. Mirek and Dan spearheaded the attack but after watching several missed opportunities Graham strode forward from midfield firing in a shot from the edge of the box. 1-0 JDF. Rob was not looking too confident in net, and this was highlighted when having taken a pass from Cory in defence his brain froze and decided to cycle and reset when having 6 outlet options in front of him. Instead he kicked it straight to the GH forward who calmly walked around him and slotted it into the open goal. 1-1. It was to get worse before the half. With the ball cleared out to the edge of the box, GH unleashed an unstoppable shot that went in off the bottom of the crossbar. 1-2 GH at the half. Play resumed with GH trying their luck with shots from multiple angles and ranges having realised that JDF were playing without a real goalie, but, after a couple of decent one handed saves to keep the game within reach, Mirek broke forward and finally found the back of the net. 2-2. Moments later it was 3-2 JDF as Mirek again pounced on a loose ball, held off the defender, and calmly finished through the legs of the GH goalie. 4-2. Next it was the turn of Richard to get in on the goals after some clever wing play from Keith and an inviting cross that eventually ended up in the back of the net. 5-2. Mirek was now on fire, netting his 3rd goal for the hat trick shortly after, and despite GH striking with a deflected looping shot over Rob's head to make it 5-3 the game was settled when Dan was played in by Keith and forcing his way through several challenges was able to slot home to round out the scoring. 6-3 JDF.
