JDF-48 Falls Even with Cordova Bay, 2-2
December 2, 2018, 2:00pm, Lochside Grass

On a chilly but sunny Sunday afternoon on the dewy Lochside grass, JDF-48 fought a tough match against a solid Cordova Bay team. The first half they were a menace to us mostly through Kim, who stepped in to give them 11 players, as he played in a forward position and distributed the ball well for them to create a few dangerous plays. But we would eventually strike first, and Ric chipped a looping and arching shot from the left top of the 18 over the head and hands of their foreboding goalie and into the far side of the goal. 1-0. The score remained as such until the half, and despite recouping Kim for our net and a good chat at the break, their team must have all drunk Red Bull because they came out on a charge and nice string of passes to score within 5 minutes of the start of the second half. 1-1. The game was well fought, and while we struggled to be patient and creative in our offensive attacks (relying instead on our quickness up front), we did manage to get the ball to Ric at the top of the 18 where he is most dangerous, and he cracked a cannon shot right up the middle that blew past the goalie's outstretched hands and almost tore the net. 2-1. Unfortunately, we don't quite know how to best hold a lead. Though we managed to contain them up to the 85th minute, they ended up passing the ball back to an attacking defender when we were all stuck in traffic near the top of the box, and he coolly cracked a nice ground-shot into the left side of the goal while Kim's view was blocked by 3 of our guys that could only stand and watch. 2-2 final that sort of felt like a loss. Good fun, and now hungry for a win!
