Our Monday League is back again!
This week saw The Soccer Domes first win over Karius2Glory. The last time these 2 teams met it was a thrilling fixture but Karius came out successful with a 7-5 win.
However this time round The Soccer Dome was not going down without a fight! Karius were looking to come into this fixture successfully as they managed to seal 2 deals before the Transfer Deadline in Adam Chesterman & Jordan Keegan. Gav Kruger was also back fit for this fixture too which added strength to this strong Karius side.
A change in dynamics for the soccer dome as regular keeper Ali Reid chose to play outfield this week, which meant Andrew Reid was making his debut in goal so they are going into this fixture looking for a win. Jason Biddulph, Dan Keogh and Geoff Groom also available for this fixture meant The Soccer Dome had an extremely strong team!
The Game started off with The Soccer Dome on the upper-hand as within the first 4 mins The Soccer Dome was 2-0 up through Dan Keogh and Geoff Groom. Andrew Reid was making some fantastic saves keeping Karius out, could he be the new Alisson of the Monday League. However 3 mins later Karius managed to bag a great goal by Chesterman from the near post. This was quickly followed by another great goal from Geoff Groom for the Soccer Dome who is now 3-1 up. Adam Chesterman quickly replied with another goal in the top corner with no way of being saved. Jason Biddulph quickly answered with a sublime goal in the bottom corner score now 4-2! Scott Elliot quickly went on the attack for Karius and thumped a strike from just outside the box, which put Andrew onto the floor. Anthony Joshua needs some tips with that KO from Scott. After picking up his glasses remains and realising his vision went from 2020 to very poor Andrew played the last part of the game out field! However this tactical decision nearly turned into a scary one as Karius brought the game back to 4-4. However after some lovely lovely football The Soccer Dome scored some worldies through Groom, Keogh and Super keeper Andrew Reid the result was 7-4. With 5 mins to go could Karius continue this great run and bag a draw?
It wasn’t to be for Karius as the Soccer Dome ran away with this game, with an extra 2 goals through Keogh and Reid, all Karius could do was bag another 3 consolation goals. The final result finishing 9-7 to The Soccer Dome. Their first win of this campaign and a sign for many more to come, they have a bright second half of the season to look forward to. The football these guys are playing at the minute is brilliant. Celebrations all around after this result.
Dan Keogh was MOM and managed to bag 5 goals, Job Well Done ey!
