Legends beat Super 48 to stay unbeaten this season !



With over half of the regular players missing we knew it was not going to be easy. Especially not when three players were not there at the 1100 kick off time / so we started with only 11 and were happy that the speed of the game was not so fast….! It was from a corner that Dan our solid defender scored with a header that gave us the lead 1-0. Super 48 had a few very good players and there was no way we could take it easy in this game. Their best player was their fast forward and he scored a great lob over Thierry on a counter attack. Slowly when we finally had our squad together we started to play better. It was in the third quarter that we did the damage to Super 48. First Michael blasted the ball in the left corner and right after that Fred our Captain got the goal he had been waiting for months, a beautiful blast in the right top corner. We lost Alp on the way to the 4th quarter and Super 48 scored one goal back to make it 3-2. Compliments to them for their fighting spirit but our inform goalie Thierry helped us to seal the 3 points in the end. He received the MOM award and Olivia who had an outstanding game received the LOM award. The beers tasted good after the game and we are back in action in two weeks !


Cheers Freek
