Firstly, I would like to welcome Mohammed to Colron Boys.
Unfortunately, Colron Boys winning run comes to an end with a 3 – 0 home defeat to rivals Midlands Soccer Academy (MSA).
The first ten minutes is a midfield battle until Colron break through the stubborn MSA defence and Harry scores twelve minutes into the game only for the linesmen to call offside, a questionable decision. A minute later after the disappointment of the disallowed goal, a hopeful high ball kick from inside the Colron half manages to unluckily find the back of the Colron net. For the remainder of the half both teams continue to battle attack and counterattack. Colron go into half time 1 – 0 down but could have easily been leading at the break.
The second half continues where the first left off, both teams fully committed and both teams playing good football. A momentary lapse in concentration and only four minutes into the half MSA increase their lead to two. The game intensifies and Colron Boys create several chances but are unable to convert the opportunities into goals. With ten minutes to play a loose ball on the edge of the Colron’s area ricochets off a Colron defender and bobbles into the net. The game finishes 3-0 to MSA. Colron Boys can feel a little unlucky as the final result didn’t reflect how close the match was.
Players of the Match
