A bit of a drubbing over the weekend by a confident Islanders crew. We were short-staffed in the backline and after a healthy lead had built up, lost some serious motivation. Some dicey calls from the refs didn’t help pick up our lips much either!
We had some definite chances, entering their D on a variety of occasions. One such occasion, in the first half, allowed Dave to sneak a goal through. We seemed to fall down in two main areas – in holding the ball between their 25 and their D and in marking in our backline. There were just way too many opportunities for their strikers to take a swing in open ground.
Not the finest of days for the crew but we’ll recoup and re-energize for the next encounter.
