Legends start the new season with a 3-0 win !



It was another beautiful day on Sunday over 20 degrees in February ! The legends were ready for the first game of the new SPL V season. With a large squad and two new players (Nicolas and Andrea) we were up against England. Last season we tied 2-2 with them and in the first 20 minutes of the game it was obvious we have not played to getter since early December. Most balls didn’t reach the other player or the first touch was not there no shot on target…….well when you are a bit older you need a bit more time to get upto full speed ! In the second 20 minutes it was a bit better from our side but England held up strong with 10 players in defense. It was in the third 20 minutes that we killed the game first Charles with a tip in although it looked like an own goal Charles claimed the goal at once ! Soon after Charles set Fred one on one with the goalie and with the goal wide open Fred managed to shoot at the goalie………luckily for him and us he dropped the ball and gave Fred a second chance 2-0 ! To complete the successful third quarter Charles scored his second to make it 3-0. In the last quarter we were looking for one more goal especially Gwenn tried very hard but failed in front of goal !


It was a good result and a good start of the season ! Our next game will be on March 20th against the Emerald !


Cheers Freek
