15th March 2005 - BCI vs. Athletico
The catch-up game with
Athletico Shenley was upon us. We'd already
fought well against the top of division 2 that same evening, now it was top
of division 1 we were up against. With some dreadful results of
previous games still deep in our hearts, we knew we had plenty to prove.
...and then....from almost nowhere...
A high ball cross from the left, deftly delivered by Mossy put the ball
to Sean's chest just to the right of the 'D'... a bounce of his right
knee and a gun shot volley into the top right of the net...their goal
keeper (only beaten once before in the whole season) was left looking
foolish. Sean had scored the wonder goal of the season! No word of a lie!
The defence were on top form throughout and where we normally let more
then 4 or 5 past, only one sneaked through after an impressive turn
left Russ wondering what day it was, they popped the equaliser past Daz
who had a pretty faultless game thus far.
1-1 and both teams could taste blood.
Good defensive play helped secure the single point although the
achievements of the drawer went much further than points. Pride was at stake,
and we certainly won ours back!
