Report

With great expectations...

Despite taking the lead part way through the second half, the Monkeys conceded a late equaliser against GSAS to slip to a disappointing 1-1 draw. The first half was the worst Monkeys have played for a while. With pre-match expectations high, when the game didn’t go our way early on we struggled to adapt and in all honestly were lucky to be 0-0 at HT. The introduction of Xander at half time sparked us in to life and it was he who got the opener after about 60 minutes. We had chances to kill the game after that but poor finishing and a lack of composure cost us. To their credit GSAS kept pushing forward and were eventually awarded a penalty for a questionable handball. Fortunately Eros was on hand to pull off a spectacular save high to his right. That should’ve been enough for us to win the game as the clock ran down but a poorly defended cross in the last minute saw GSAS get their leveller with a back post header. A fair result overall. Thanks to GSAS for the game and we’ll see you all in the new year, no doubt carrying a few extra kilos!
