Our second game on the new Sacred heart turf on a very humid day. Rye welcomed a guest appearance from Niklas Wellens. The swamp like conditions made it very hard to get up and down the field. It took us a while to produce an opening goal. Most decent attacking play coming through Nico and Niklas. The defense held firm and at the end of the half Rye were 3-0 up.
The second half we created more chances overall and ended up 7-1 to the good. 4 goals from the ringer and one each for Nico,Fritz and Abdel. Decent conversion from set piece was good and a last second buzzer beater from Abdel into the roof of the net was a highlight.
MoM went to Niklas for his 4 goals and DoD to Nico, for being Nico it seems. Bit harsh, but it didn’t hurt his sun tan any.
