The B’s played a ripper first half. We kept possession well, and got two goals from shot/crosses which both looped over the keeper’s head. The blot on the half was us falling asleep after the first goal, and allowing Pembroke to run into our box and force the ball home without much of a tackle. So 2-1 up, and we were confident.
Unfortunately it was a game of two halves, and we were under pressure for much of the second half. We had chances, and we managed to keep Pembroke at bay. It was disappointing then that we handed them their equaliser from a corner: a free header which should have been saved went into the net off Paulie on the post.
And then, with just about the final touches of the game, Pembroke’s left winger played a nice one-two with their striker, and blasted the ball into the top left corner from about 20yards. Terrible way to lose a game in which we’d never been behind in, but you had to applaude the finish…
We’ll have to start again in round 2.
