Bolton Lads Club 1 - 0 Old Blacks Reserves
Well it's definite, Bolton Lads Club are definitely our bogie team. After losing to them 3 times last season, I felt we could go there and get a result. Unfortunately it never turned out that way.
Overall I felt that we were the better team, even though we didn't really get our game together for the first hour or so, we still played the better football, and created more chances.
The game was starting to become a little frustrating, but just as we seemed to be getting on top they went in front, with what turned out to be the winning goal.
Bolton Lads won the ball on the edge of their penalty area, and then hit the ball long and out wide, the ball was then taken almost to the bye line by their winger, who crossed in for their forward to nip in front of Mark Feeney, and somehow the ball deflected in to the goal past Ross Wilson.
After the goal Ross only had to make one good save to make, down to his right, but everything else was from long range and straight at him.
So where do I start with our chances? Our first real big chance came when Kieran Laskowski slipped a nice ball through for Brad Langhorn to go one on one with the keeper, but Brad put his shot wide when it seemed he would go on and score. Then Jordan Fielding made a strong run into the box, and sent a thunderbolt shot against the underside of the bar, only to see it bounce down on the wrong side of the goal line and away to safety. Olie Hide then somehow managed to head wide from a pin point cross, when he was around a yard out, and under the crossbar, with the keeper nowhere near him.
Mark Feeney then headed against the underside of the bar in last minute, only to watch the ball drop down in front of the net, with none or our lads close enough to tap the ball in.
Next game up is 1st v 2nd, and a chance for us to bounce straight back.
