Match Report - 08 Sep 2013, Maclay Football Club Blue beat Wycombe Tigers


First game of the season a the team made a great start, with many of the players having not played together previously it was difficult to judge how they would gel. However there was little to worry about. The first half belonged to Maclay. The first goal came from a beautiful pass with the outside of the boot from Jake to Jo, who calmly put the ball into the goal in a one on one. The first half ended 1 nil. Jack had clearly run through the pain barrier and had to come off with the worst blisters I have seen. The team reorganised with Wycombe determined to get a result. Maclay struck the first blow with Jack G striking the ball from outside the box on to the crossbar and in via the keepers head. Goal line technology determined Maclay were 2 up. Wycombe applied the pressure and as Ethan rested his arm on an attacker he fell over giving a clear penalty to Wycombe. From the penalty Wycombe struck the post and as Maclay discussed the merits of the refs decision their striker walked up to the ball tied his laces and scored. Seeing their chance Wycombe pressured but the defence and keeper stood firm. Marley and Pat swapping positions as holding midfielder showed the team what determination and a skilful touch can do and dominated. Marleys efforts earned him two yellows which was a little harsh, not before his efforts earned him man of the match. A great team effort well done
