T&G are having a particularly poor season, just two wins
so far, and must have been dreading the game against
the mighty Bunky’s, fired up after having played and/or witnessed and/or heard
about one of their worst performances ever!
So, to kick-off ….
BC2 fielded an attacking side that saw Ritchie Armstrong
retain his place in goal, Justiniho and Mark Rogers
at the back, Benaldo and Matty Rogers through the middle and the return of
Dazza up front.
From the start, BC2 looked well up for this, with
particular efforts from Daz and Ben in chasing down every ball
and every player and the
Rogers boys playing with flair as they moved
the ball around.
After just a few minutes, Justin won the ball, played it
up the line to Daz, who turned and rolled
the ball across the area for Ben to strike home.
Seconds later, Matty made it two with a well struck
shot, again from the right, before adding his second shortly
afterwards from the edge of the area, just knocking ball under the advancing
Although T&G pulled one back with one of their few
excursions into BC territory, the margin was restored just
before half time when Benaldo added his second, again from close range after a
parried save. Every goal was
created by Dazza, playing up front but using his strength and pace to create.
The second half saw Bunky’s take their foot off a bit
and team changes didn’t help, but they never seemed
worried as Ritchie made up for last week with a string of fine saves before
Matty capped a great performance
with his third – a second hat-trick since joining the club.
So, is it me, or are we either really bad or great? Can
Bunky’s get this balanced, in order to try avoid humiliating
defeats against lower opposition? Last week, rubbish. This week, every player
deserves 10/10 for their movement,
their awareness, their passing and their finishing.
Well done boys. It’s why we all follow the club so
passionately. It’s what football is about and this performance,
similar to last week really (although for entirely different reasons), brought
a tear to the eye …..
