After Last weeks narrow loss to Patmore in our first Positive Lifestyles Estates match the Winstanley boys were crying out for a rematch to even up the rankings!
With the Selhurst Sports Arena newly resurfaced we had the perfect venue for the rematch, with Project Manager James in Full black ref gear, the scene was set for a very competitive game.
Both sides looked the real deal in their GMFC strips and tried to play entertaining football keeping the ball on the floor.
Winstanley initially showed the greater experience and sharpness playing the ball with more purpose and playing the ball into good areas to gain an upper hand in the game.
Midway through the half the deadlock was broken from a quick throw catching the defence off guard and tapped the ball in at the back post. This goal was followed up with a second after a swift break away.
As the half was coming to a close Patmore pushed for a goal and had some close chances and got their rewards with a well worked goal. The last 5 mins brought an onslought from Patmore but the shooting was a bit wayward.
Just as the half time was about to blow however Winstanley extended there lead to 3-1.
Despite the scoreline the game was still pretty even when the second half started and Patmore immediately started the half with goal bringing them to within 1 goal of Winstanley.
Winstanley broke away again through some slack defending to maintain a 2 goal difference.
Patter came back though with some great football unlocking the defence and levelling the scores.
This made for a tense finale with both sides going at it and poor defending creating some hair raising moments.
Winstanley broke away though in stoppage time to make it 5-4 and then with the last kick of the game took the score to 6-4 to the Winstanley boys.
Overall it was a fantastic occasion with both teams really getting in to the spirit of the occasion and whilst being highly competitive also ended with smiles on everyone faces ! great game great event!
