The boys made the trip to aqunias on Friday nite for the match against 22nd old boys on the back of a 5 - 2 pre season victory against them . However Friday nites match turned out to be a completely different case this time.

We arrived early at the venu however disappointment soon set in as both teams where unable to warm up and we where unable to get into the changing rooms until the teams from the early match had finished .

We approached the referee to see if he would be allowing both teams extra time to prepare only to be told no that we would be kicking off at 8.15 and it was now 8pm.

The match kicked off with the REC well on top in the early stages with some nice football being played but unfortunately the boys couldnít find the back of the net.

Early chances from midfield maestros Luke Johnston and Matty Gibson narrowly missed the target and with 22nd slowly coming into the game 22nd where guilty of 2 serious over the top fouls on defensive pairing Owen John Gill and Alex Hamilton on any other day a stronger referee would have produced 2 red cards , thankfully neither players where badly injured .

The rec fell behind midway through the 1st half to a poor conceded goal from a defensive point of view ,this seemed to have a knock on effect as the boys heads dropped and due to a lack of concentration it was long until it was 2-0 .
Coach Phil Johnston urged the players to settle down get the ball down and get back to playing football , a tactical substitution Ben chambers was replaced by mike McGrath to try and tighten things up the rec players urged on by captain Matty Gibson continued to put themselves under pressure by constantly giving the ball away and just when things seemed to be settling down bang , another defensive howler and itís 3-0 to 22nd half time could not come quick enough .

A booking for Owen John gill for talking back to the referee very harsh to say the least and some aggressive tackles by the 22nd going unpunished the ref was certainly not having a good game .

Halftime. 22nd old boys 3 comber rec u17 0

The 2nd half begins with a defensive switch Alex Hamilton moving into the centre half position and tom lappin moving out to the left ,the rec boys come out with a purpose following some strong words by the coaching staff at the break and start to get the ball down and play the way they can and it pays off sadayou latches on to a through ball by sub zac Quinn Goalllll 3-1 the comber boys are right back in this 22nd struggling to get the ball of the comber boys .
Coach Phil makes another tactical change moving pat Mack into the back switching to 4 at the back .the boys continue to apply pressure and with time fast running out PENALTY! sadayou breaks through the 22nd defence and is taken out by there left back , the tackle results in sadayou having to leave the field with a nasty injury to his right ankle thankfully his new leg tattoo is not damaged .

Centre back no 3 Alex Hamilton steps up to convert his 2nd penalty in 2 games , game on 3-2 the boys are right back in this . The rec boys keep going right to the end however itís not to be 3 first half mistakes have once again cost the boys .the ref blows up to bring to an end a match which the rec boys who are a much better team than the score would indicate loosing for the 2nd week in a row .
