Rosario

Training had been going well so the team were I think quietly confident going into this match, maybe even to confident. Our defence were working on marking tight and closing down quickly to make the opponent work. First 30 seconds of the match this was totally forgot about. Rosario walked through from kick of and scored. Comber looked blown away. With the wind knocked out of their sails they were chasing the game, hoofing the ball and not finding a teammate. It was evident that the two forward players were the danger men and they created and scored another goal 0-2. It took a good 15 mins for Comber to settle and start to play. Chris showed that he listened before ko and chased everything down. His pace got him a chance to run at the keeper and he coolly finished 1-2. Lewis was having success down the right when he got the ball , with his strikes hitting the target, but his chances were few and far between as most of the play was down the left as Comber didn't see the space he had. Chris got another run at the keeper after Adam threaded the ball through. 2-2. The dangerous forward got in behind our defence again and hit a venomous shot , but Ben chambers pulled of a worldy of a save and pushed the ball over the bar. We were glad to get into half time on level terms. I told the kids that need to get the team work going or we were heading for defeat. The defence was asked to tighten up as this was a match were they were up against players as quick and strong as themselves. Comber came out a different team chasing down, tackling, pressing forward and they got an early reward. Chris unselfishly broke through again and squared to Wee Messi 3-2. What a comeback. Comber had lifted themselves but Rosario always looked a threat. The game went back and forward but became a bit stale with little happening, each team cancelling each other out. That was until another played pass saw the ball eventually fall to Tom, the shot was hit so well that even though the keeper got a hand it still went in 4-2. A few changes saw Kirsty come on with Chris moving to the right. Again his pace proved decisive, after collecting the ball the half way line he burst by the defence and headed into space and got his cross away. Wee Messi got on it again 5-2.

Just as it seemed Comber would go on and win comfortably then switched of again. Rosario scored 3 times with Comber not offering much in the strangest period of comber football. Only for Ben again in nets it was only 5-5. Ben S seemed to be the only one with a bit of fire in his belly, when everyone else stopped running after the Wee right winger, he pushed by his teammates and even after giving a 3yard head start, not only caught him but came away with the ball. This kick started comber again.

After a bit of a scramble and the ball whipped back in, Kirsty ( not feeling 100%) got us the winner with the last kick of the game.

Positives from game was the free scoring and never say die attitude.

Negatives this young squad need to realise that the opposition want the ball as well, never switch of and if you play with anger you become ordinary and let yourself and teammates down.
