With a depleted squad we rolled up to UWC Dover for our first home game in some weeks. We know playing GSAS is always challenging, physical side who like to sit back and counter. We really dominated the whole game but possession doesnt always equate to wining games and so this proved against GSAS. Lots of good passing across the pitch, the dynamic duo of PooBob and Dom were having a lot of joy on the right and KazyPoo was putting in a shift up top. We didnt really est the GK although Dyne missed a one on one which he usually puts away. Sucker punch came when GSAS scored their only 2 chances in the whole game - the big lad up top calmly finishing the 2nd opportunity, that was about the only thing he did that was calm, screaming shouting complaining and this was at his own players! We always felt that we would get chances and in the second half we continued to dominate the ball. Assist king josh swept a ball in to Kaz who finished well and with 10-15 to go Joe tucked his chance in. For the 2nd week in a row we ran out of time but fair to say that both weeks we have started poorly and left too big a challenge. Mom Casuals: Josh Mom: GSAS: Orange boots striker
The first 10-15 minutes belonged clearly to Casuals without them creating very clear chances. A good shot from distance which was just above the goal and one header which was saved by Joe. GAS got stronger and wishin 10-15 minutes scored twice. Nice Attack initiates by Alex who played the ball deep and the cross came to Mitch who headed for the 1:0. Nice combination between Dee and Hamza leaded to the the second goal nice finished by Hamza. Casuals seemed clearly impressed by the strong performance of GAS before half time. Oscar had some good steels and a nice come back. 2nd half started with an early goal for Casuals. Referee had the opinion that it was not offside and a fine cross was headed in to make it 2:1. It was good Attack deifficult to defend. For a short time GAS was nervous but we figured very well back and had decent counter attacks with Dee, Mitch, Hamza and Jens. Unfortunately GAS didn’t manages to score form one of those chances. It seemed the game would end 2:1 as Casuals had more ball possession but was not creating very dangerous chances. Unfortunately after about 85 minutes Casuals scored the 2:2. Overall it was same as usual against Casuals a nice and fast game. A bit unlucky at the end for GAS.
