It was a cold and rainy day match day. The match started and immediately we were on the back foot a long ball was played straight from kickoff was not cleared and the opposition knocked in an early goal. Not a great start! A few minutes into the half, the horrendous weather played its part in the game and we conceded a lucky goal after a long shot from the opposition bounced into a puddle on the goal line and just crept in to make it 2-0. The game then slipped out of our hands and we went on to lose the game 7-0. Although in the second half we held back the tide and had more of the ball.
The man of the match was Muhammad-Zayn Kalyan for his amazing saves in very bad conditions.

Thank you to our coach Mazharali Gulamhussein for spurring us on as well as acting as a parent by taking four members of the team to the venue. Also, a special thanks to Uncle (dad) for being the linesman for the first half and trying to hold back any instructions out of respect for the coach.
