Back after a two-week break, yellow and black returned to the pitch for a clash with Greenwich II. With most lads arriving late but hungry for victory, we had an almost complete squad with only a few guys missing. A furious start resulted in a quick and comfortable lead. Vishal put his name on the score board, putting the supporters on the stands into a state of ecstasy. While the usual suspects Nico and Abdel got their goals early on, we had a debut scorer for Rye with Johannes converting an elegant through pass Argentinian style with the Greenwich keeper furiously running right at him. Alex G was close to putting the small white ball across the line. However, his shot went way wide and Fritz volunteered to stop it going out of bounce by stopping it with his ankle mid-air. 6-0 at half time created some healthy appetite for more, with Peter requesting the same amount of goals in the second time, while really “this should be a 15-0 guys!”
With that kind of pressure weighing a little too heavy on the team’s shoulders and Peter suddenly assuming the position of central striker, it took some time to get back into the goal-scoring mood. After many a try, Nico managed to get another goal and Abdel scored with a beautiful backhand. Alex G and Mike also got some glory and completed the 11-0 final result. With a few tired phases and hits on the post, the team did not manage to meet Peter’s enthusiastic target. However, with the sun out and Mike’s personal champagne delivery lady Laura being in top form, the third half was certainly up to standard. After one beer each, everybody went home for an early night due to push back at 9am the next day. Good boys.
Team that put in 11 and did not concede any:
