It was an important game for both teams and after a sloppy wide open game Greenwich came away with the points despite a nervy comeback late. Steve was busy in goal with Greenwich gifting plenty of chances but he proved more than equal, especially one on one. A slim lead at the half looked good as our defence tightened, JaJa recovered for a crisp backhand finish. The second half looked to be going Greenwich’s way after a generous stroke award made it 2-0 and an comical own goal looked like making the game safe.
Greenwich, however, never locked down the opportunities they were given and at the same time were leaking chances at the other end as our shape frayed with our fitness. After two quick suspensions a stoppable corner made it 3-1 and another sloopy corner brought Islanders to within a goal but Greenwich saw out the game for a valuable win.
