My 1st OUA Game!
09.09.2006 18 °C
Woke up still tired after 10 hours sleep but managed to pull myself out of bed and up for my first game as a Ryerson Ram! It was a wet start to the day and a home game! So met up with the guys and Tony at 10:15 (well the rest of the team turned up in dribs and drabs later on).
So the starting 11 were picked and we went to the pitch to warm up. We knew we had to win this game to get high in the table and raise morale for tomorrows game!
It was neck and neck all the way through the game with the odd strike from the Lakers here and there and we struck the crossbar just before half time!
Tony made some changes to liven up the midfield during the first half and decided to make another about 10 minutes into the second half! We started off on a high with 2 chances in the first minute of the restart. The second half was our's really as we dominated the midfield and our defence was top notch.
On the 65th minute we had the ball outside the 18 yard line when Moses struck the ball as it hit the net and bounced back out! Was it in or was it out! The decision was out as it it the bar on the side of the net where it joins the cross bar and post but because it hit the net, confusion between the linesmen and ref caused chaos with the players on the pitch.
The last 10 minutes was our's for the taking with chances. Duca took it round the keeper only to lose power at the last hurdle and get it cleared from the line, Radu came close but fumbled over the ball and lost it towards the keeper.
It was a frustrating game for everyone as the game finished 0-0, where we should have nailed at least 2 goals in both halves. It was a good game for the spectators and everyone else...
....including me who was on the bench
