street footie Football Club went into the third match of their Mason Dixon Soccer League campaign full of hope as they looked to change the results from their previous weeks of competition. New faces were all around as the orange army continued marching in a positive direction.
The game started well for the recruits as they relished the chance to perform in front of their new teammates. A dominant first-half performance would make a flock of traveling fans wonder where the bunch had been hiding all season—managing to sit in the opposition half for the bulk of the half and leading by the break by one goal.
The second half cast a duck shadow on the hopes of the new boys when an arguable office goal awarded to ‘MERICA and a red card decision changed the course of the game. Heads would drop, but the boys from street footie Football Club didn’t stop fighting until the blow of the last whistle.
