DBFC 45s enjoyed a comfortable 4-1 win in a friendly game against USRC Socials at Kings Park last night 15 March with goals from Ben, Kwanu, Brendon and Mumu . We ended up with a squad of 15 for the game with new DB signing Ricardo and 4 guest players. We dominated possession for the first 15 minutes but USRC scored first with a long distance strike that somehow evaded Mark . We then got back in the game with marauding LB Ben finding space in USRC’s penalty area to drill the ball home. Kwanu , our Godfathers guest with historic DB / Studz connections , made it 2-1 with a well placed finish after about 30 minutes before leaving a leg in a challenge at our end and conceding a penalty. Mark duly made amends for his earlier transgression with a superb save to his left. HT 2-1 up and feeling that we should have already put the game to bed . 2nd half started well with Brendon finishing his shift as lone striker with a simple finish after their GK was caught out of possession. Then guest Mumu hit a nice low finish across the GK after a cross from RW . Cruise control and now managing to bench Nik and Brendon to make sure our older players got minutes. USRC tried to get back into the game by playing a high line and catching our runners offside on multiple occasions. We responded with some rare forays from CB by Steve, returning from a 9 weeks injury, into USRC’s half in an endeavour to spring the offside trap. Final score 4-1 , back to Kings Park again next week for another league game against USRC who will be looking for revenge for our smash and grab last week.
