A great 2-0 win for DBFC 45s against USRC on Friday 8 March with Kieran McKnight scoring both. This was a smash and grab raid with USRC dominating possession throughout the first half . However we kept a good defensive shape and their chances were limited to long range efforts which Alessio ( kindly standing in for our regular GKs ) dealt with impressively . For our part we looked dangerous whenever we got the ball in behind for Kieran whose March pre med diet of fava beans was giving him good energy. We somehow got to HT at 0-0 and Manager Steve suggested that getting a point would be a good point. Not for the first time, the HT team talk was ignored and DBFC started the second half in great style. Within 10 minutes we were 2-0 up : first USRC gifted possession to Kieran just outside their penalty area and Kieran chipped the GK who was well off his line. Then a sublime goal as Nik’s ball in behind was latched on to by Kieran on the right side of the 18 yard line and he hit it back across the GK . Unfortunately there was a clash of heads on 55 minutes between our Will and our favourite USRC player Greg who regularly plays for us, and the game was delayed for 15 minutes so that Greg could get medical attention. When the game resumed, the referee did not allow any added time and of course we could have no complaints as we had already used our impact sub Dirk . However USRC gave it a good go in the remaining time and a couple of shots fizzed over Alessio’s crossbar from distance. Again outstanding performances all round and a final farewell to Macca who will no longer have to face the sanction of getting a bottle of Scottish ale mixed up with the Gatorade before the game. Finally, happy to report that both Will and Greg appear to be fine.
