Cup shock exit

After back to back wins casuals were confident coming in to this game against Nippon, whom statically are 2nd place for worse disciplinary record in the league. I can’t really be bothered to write a story this week so ill just stick with the basics. We went 2 up and looked very comfortable – we were aware of certain Nippon players especially #5 who tried to get every casuals player booked or sent off at every opportunity (note above stat). We were very comfortable at 3-1, even at 3-2. Then we went down to 10 with Phelps pulling up with cramp which is probably aligned with never training (who knew huh). They scored a scrappy goal for 3-2, then a very nice strike for 3-3 and then a free header at the near post for 4-3 win. Disappointing for casuals having been in control for a good 60mins – our ability to control and see games out was a concern today. MOM Nippon – the striker that came on MOM Casuals – Wags, so consistent, always reliable and puts his body (head) on the line.

A COME FROM BEHING WIN

Score 1st half : 1-3 2nd half : 3-0 Total : 4-3 Although we were only 12 members, FC Nippon fighted as one and kept concentration till the end. In the 1st half, FC was losing by 2 points, but we never gave up and trusted our victory. After starting 2nd half, Minato got a first goal and it could encourage all members to move forward. In the next breath, Tachibana got the tyring beautiful goal. In the end, Sakai got a dramatic header goal from Minato free kick. Thanks Casuals and let's see coming negt league match.
