Thursday night football in Penwortham

Another Draw

At Least We Made A Point


Back to seven players this week, Goose in nets, Phil and Jake at the back, Mark, Chris and Sean in the middle and Andy up front. Up against Redline FC - the sort of annoying team that like to pass the ball around quickly and precisely. Off we went, giving as good as we got, Goose not too busy in goals, plenty of huff and puff and effort from us. Not much in the first 10 minutes, then a Redline move creates an opening, a well hit shot, they're 1 - 0 up. We stick at it, grab an equaliser by half time - Andy knocks one in - and it's all to play for in the second half.

Second half, more of the same. Half way through, Andy tries to take the ball round a defender, gets fouled but the ball immediately breaks lose to Mark, who calmly knocks it in the back of the net. 2 - 1 up and 10 minutes to play. We're hanging on a bit, Redline have more of the ball, they're becoming more and more anxious, but we manage to fend them off. Then, with the last strike on goal of the match, a Jake own goal (header) gives them the equaliser.

Much gloom (after coming so close to taking all 3 points).

Redline FC    2 - 2     Never Odd or Even


Next week - 1st November - we are playing Lads on Toure at 9.15pm.
