Old Sils Men’s 2s 2-0 CoB Men’s 1stXI

In a tightly contested game away from home, this game would be decided on the team most clinical in front of goal. CoB started off brightly with an early chance for Noor to score in an open net, only for a defender to save it off the line with ease. CoB looked the more dominant of teams with Alex, Kyle, Jeevan and Sean offering some great exchanges to move the ball around. The defence of Mat, Ash and Sohail were barely tested in the opening exchanges. Noor was provided with many chances, none of which he could threaten the keeper with or keep on target. The game grew into something more evenly contested, thought the score 0-0 at the half.

Second half and Sils took the game to CoB with more exchanges in front of the goal as tempers flared between players within their own teams and at opponents, as the umpires took control of the game. Abrar saw a yellow card for a poor challenge from behind a player, remaining on the sidelines for 15 of the final 20. Sils took advantage and pegged CoB back with two goals in quick succession. A game to forget for the CoB forwards.
