Our C Boys kicked off their competition today against a tough and well drilled North Vista side. Truth be told we were lucky in many aspects. Our players found it tough going under the hot 3pm sun and the opponent's robust play. On many occasions it was the safe hands and commanding play of our goalkeeper that kept us out of trouble and gave confidence to the rest of the team. With North Vista unable to score despite their pressure, we took the lead shortly before half time via a long range effort by Danial. That deflated our opponents a little and we held firm till half time.
We toughened up mentally in the second half and were able to match the physical play of our opponents, which enabled us to win more balls in the middle of the field. We gave as good as we got and manage to win a corner. Danial delivered a pin-point ball and Baqir powered in a header for our second goal! We then defended resolutely for a 2-0 win.
Overall a good start against a tough opponent.
