DBFC 45s had a convincing 4-0 win in our league game against SIA on the Causeway Bay grass pitch on Friday 19 April . It took some time for the team to settle on the vast expanse of an uneven surface but our first goal on 18 minutes was from the top drawer. Good build up down our right flank by Kieran C and Nik put Kieran M in space on the right wing and his driven cross was met by Adam’s bullet header at the far post . We never looked back and Nik’s long distance shot 5 minutes later made it 2-0 . On 30 minutes Nik got behind the SIA defence and crossed low from the left for Kieran’s simple tap in to make it 3-0 . SIA had their best chance just before HT but Alessio , kindly guesting for us , was always an assured presence in goal . In the 2nd half our biggest threat was probably whether the heavens would open up and cause a postponement. We managed to do multiple rotations without affecting the flow of our game and this gave our newer signings- Ricardo, Andy and Jorg – time to settle in . Kieran M put the game out of sight on 60 minutes with a volley from 10 yards that hit the crossbar and spun back across the line. To their credit, SIA kept going but had no subs after 2 of their team went off injured. So we saw the game out quite comfortably for a deserved win.
