Valley View 1 v Athelstone Blue 4
"Today's game was between 2 teams who will likely be strong contenders for the premiership at the end of the season and the first half did not disappoint. It was a tough hard contest with no easy balls to be won. Athelstone scored early with a lucky break but our boys fought back hard to equalise after a nice cross from Antonio which was beautifully finished off by Trent. Although we did miss a penalty the half time score was 1 all and this was a fair reflection on the game to that point.
Our boys started the second half very strongly and did get the upper hand only for the 'hand of luck' to turn against us as we missed out scoring the go ahead goal by the very narrowest of margins. Some parts of the ball definitely did cross the goal line and did hit the side netting but the referee ruled that the whole of the ball did not cross the whole of the goal line and so it was not to be. Sport can be cruel at times and after this great disappointment of narrowly missing what would have been a sensational goal, the opposition immediately took the ball down to the other end and scored a goal. The cruel hand of luck struck again a short time later when a second yellow card was given to Trent, who did vigorously react to a very rough dangerous tackle, and this left us a player down. This then led to a third Athelstone goal and also to a later penalty which left the final score 4 to 1 against.
The team was frustrated in the second half today but showed it could more than match it for most of the game with most likely the best next team in this division and so the team must now regroup to fight and win another day.
Goal scorer: Trent (1).
