Game Seventeen - versus Murexico

I’m a little tired tonight so only a brief match report.

Some late withdrawals left us with a risky six tonight but we coped brilliantly with this disadvantaged and enjoyed a thoroughly deserved 3-1 victory.

The midfield pair of Stevie G and Rocko were dominant from the start and created and scored the opening two goals on 20 and 29 minutes.*

The third arrived before the interval with a deft flick** from Cesc4 after the Murexico goalkeeper had parried an initial shot.

Intelligent football throughout from TFK kept us in possession for long spells, frustrating the opposition.

Murexico did manage to grab one after a goalmouth scramble with about 5 minutes remaining but never threatened to reduce the deficit further and TFK continued to enjoy the lion’s share of possession and chances.

  • Both goals were actually scored by Stevie and the setup work was Stevie’s also.

** The deft flick from Cesc4 was with his arm.

An excellent performance that sizzled with intent from the start last night. I thought Stevie and Jugs in particular took the game to them from the off. No doubt Stevie was inspired by my ‘prepare to be a hero’ text sent to him an hour before kick-off. Jugs stepped forward from the back very well and was involved in two goals and Stevie took his second goal wonderfully after a great turn and run. Everyone played their part in an important victory. Well played fellas.
