Game Summary

First Half

Colron were quick off the mark with a couple of attempts on the MSA goal within the first five minutes. The game then became a physical midfield battle with some crunching tackles and challenges. The first half continues in a similar manner with both teams cancelling each other out. MSA few shots on goal are easily dealt with by Ethan who was fully in control of his goal area. It’s 0-0 when the whistle blows for half time and Colron can feel a little unlucky that they couldn’t convert a couple of early chances also having a lot of the decisions going against them.

Second Half

The second half starts, and the contest intensifies with the game on a knife edge, both teams battling hard to take control with Colron edging most of the play but not helped by some of the decisions that continue to favour the home team. The deadlock is broken when MSA score with ten minutes of the game remaining taking advantage of the games many unnecessary disruptions and catching Colron’s defence off guard. Colron still rattled four minutes later MSA score the final goal of the game. Colron lose the game 2-0 after a hard-fought battle and can feel unlucky not to get at least a draw, after more than matching their opponents.

Congratulations to Ethan (parents’ player) and Dylan (man of the match) well done boys!
