Almost but not quite
« on: September 07, 2019, 09:01:20 PM »
Colts 2-2 EK

We almost managed to beat last year’s champions by holding onto our 2-1 score from the first half but it wasn’t to be despite the hard work and effort of every player. EK played a great passing game especially in the first half but they perhaps overplayed in the danger zone whereas Colts with less possession scored two beautiful goals. Then in the second half the determination, pressing and concentration of the Colts players was incredible. They had several opportunities to score the third goal that would probably have clinched victory for us. No doubt the sending off of Arnie Bembo forced Colts to play deep and soak up pressure but they just couldn’t hold onto their lead. Nevertheless, the players and coaching staff deserve praise for the way in which Colts so often punch above their weight in terms of the financial resources available to the ‘top’ teams. It is also obvious that Colts have a team spirit where they support each other and enjoy their football.(That is certainly how it looks to me as a fan from the outside looking in)

Forza Colts.
