Comber Rec

Having been hammered by this team not so long ago in the cup , I fear the worst.
On our previous encounter the Portaferry team bullied Comber all over the pitch, so I told the boys to get in their face , stand them up and play as a team.

Portaferry set the stall out early doors with a hard, heavy tackle on Kirsty on left wing. In fairness she got up, dusted herself of and hit the defender a well timed hard tackle of her own, but the ref awarded a free kick against her. Portaferry done their usual with the shoulder barging and hard tackles and quite rightly so with no punishment, the problem was that when Comber done it he was awarding free kicks constantly, even going as far as warning Kirsty about cards etc. Portaferry took the lead but Combers heads didn't drop and they played the better football. Portaferry got a corner, the ref let the kid take the corner flag out and take the corner. I pointed out that we got warned about that before and he nodded in acknowledgement. Next corner same thing. The ref was told again about our issue, on them having another corner. What did he do he went over and started coaching the kid how to hit a corner with the flag in. Even with the poor refereeing Comber equalised through Wee Messi and that's how the match finished. A lot of our players were playing positions they weren't familiar with because of players missing again for one reason or another so us going in at half time all square was a brilliant result. The half time talk was more of the same but with a bit more discipline.

Portaferry scored early but didn't really push on. Comber pressed and went for the equaliser but in doing so started to get tired allowing Portaferry to get their 3rd. We stilled looked the better team and if we'd taken our chances we'd have been winning the match. Unfortunately fitness was a problem and Comber were visibly tired. Their second didn't come and Portaferry put the match to bed with a 4th. The Comber side have a lot to work on but there was also many positives.

MOTM
For me it was hard to split two players so I won't. Ben Scott and Tom Vogan done well playing outta their normal position. Ben at centre back and Tom left back. They both dug in organising the defence and reading the game. They both pushed their side on and didn't deserve to be on the losing side.

Man of the Match Scott and Vogan

Goal Scorer: Sam Presho (1)
