Both teams brought a solid line up of guys with plenty of extra subs, ready to compete, on this chilly Wednesday evening. I could write three pages of description of all the near misses we had in the first half, but I'll just mention that Joel hit the crossbar and shot wide from point blank range, and both Ric and Paulo flubbed one-on-ones against the goalie. The Gordon Head team brought out a fast team that tried to pressure, and in the first half had one shot from about 30 yards out by their lefty, Dmitri. It was a low shot that dipped and bounced just inside the right post, surprising George who thought it was going wide. Second half we came out ready to equalize, and we had attack after attack, but just could not get it to fall into the net. Joel hit the post a second time on a header, then dove for a low header ball in traffic just as a GH player kicked to clear the ball and smacked him in the face for a bloody nose, black eye, and an early exit. Our defense counted maybe only one shot by GH in the whole second half -- clearly they concentrated their efforts on their defense and held on for a squeaker of a win. Tough match, and better luck next time!
