We were very poor today; we had too many players on an off day at the same time and this meant we could not take control of the game. We were the better side for the first 10 minutes when we put together some good attacking moves but unfortunately after this good start we took our foot off the pedal and Collegians went on to dominate the remainder of the half. We were very fortunate however, to take the lead against the run of play after 25 minutes when Sparrow pounced on a loose ball just inside the 18 yard box and drilled an excellent shot low inside the left hand post. Five minutes later Colin Guard had to make a smart save to keep out a fierce shot that was struck straight at him. This was his last piece of action before picking up a nasty ankle injury that should have side-lined him but he had to soldier on for the remainder of the match as we were again short of numbers (this is becoming increasingly frustrating).
We patched up Colin at half time and although he was unable to kick the ball he managed to carry on for us. In fairness we were excellent for the first 15 minutes of the second half; we played a number of very good passing moves that saw us create a few half chances but unfortunately none were taken. After this great start to the second half it was frustrating that we again went off the boil and allowed Collegians to take control of the match for last half hour. They were rewarded when a long range shot deceived Colin and due to his injury he was unable to get across the goal and make the save. We were under presure for the remaining 15 minutes but managed to ride our luck to the final whistle.
On reflection we were fortunate to come away from this awful performance with a point. We will certainly need to raise our game next week when we meet Corinthians in the cup.
