Match Report - 31 Oct 2010, Maclay Football Club White lost to Acorn Raiders
A game of two halves. With 4 subs this was always going to be difficult. The team in the first half made a steady start but Acorn were quick off the mark with an excellent goal from outside the box. Maclay fought back with good play all round. Some neat play in midfield from Henry and Karl saw Josh curl the ball into the top right corner from outside the box. This was followed by an attempted overhead kick from Josh that hit the post. Maclay were unlucky not to go in at half time ahead. The defence had been solid.
The second hald started brightly with a well struck goal from Alex Moss. In the end however the number of subs made the difference with several 4 man changes. Acorn struck back with 3 later goals to take the victory. I think all thought a draw would have been fair. The match was in reality only a cup game and we were already out. I was pleased to see a good performance and David and Stan stood out in the second half. It is not often I will give 3 man of the matches however Josh stood out in the first half and David and Stan stood tall in the second.
