Fish Island landed a big one today with a 2-9 victory!
The first goal went to us. The referee awarded a penalty for a handball in the box. Jordan converted it well. 0-1. Gorillas equalised soon after. A low free kick on the edge of the box took a deflection into the net. Alex got a hand to it but the pace of the shot carried it in. 1-1. The next goal went to the Gorillas. A good counterattack was well finished. 2-1. The Fish Island defending was quite casual for the goal. Being on the front foot for the majority of the half perhaps made us complacent.
2-1 at halftime.
The message at half time was to stop giving away careless fouls by diving into challenges which lead to the equalising goal. Halcyon replaced Aman at half time.
With Halcyon moved up top and JT to left back it didn’t take long for the sub to find clear openings. None of them found net but the change really cemented our dominance. The Fish Island equaliser came from Andrew who lashed home from ten yards out. The keeper stood no chance. 2-2! With 30 minutes left to play Gorillas went down to ten men. They didn’t have any substitutes to bring on after their winger was fouled by me and was unable to continue. That was when the floodgates opened. Halcyon scored a quick-fire hat trick. The most notable was the third when he took it around the goalkeeper. 2-5! Jacob then scored a well finished goal by cutting in from the left . 2-6! Jordan added a second to his tally. 2-7! As did Andrew. 2-8! Harry crashed the final goal in off the crossbar. He arrived late in the box onto a square pass from Jordan and buried it. 2-9!
