Our 3rds Men’s team chalked up another win on the weekend. This week our team had their way with an under-skilled Breakwater lineup. The 2-1 scoreline flatters Breakwater, it could have easily been a double digit loss for them. This win pushes our team up to 2nd position on the Ladder. To secure 2nd spot and the Semi-Final home ground advantage our boys will be needing a win at North Geelong in next week’s final fixtured match.
About the match;
Geelong SC began the match with a strong wind advantage and they enjoyed long periods of ball possession in Breakwater’s half. Becker and Stoj combined well in the center of the park setting up numerous attacks. Miki was the main scoring threat early, running around the Breakwater defense, his two shoting efforts cleared the bar.
It was Becker who eventually opened the scoring, he fired a powerful low drive into the far side-netting, Becker had exchanged passes with Stoj and Georgi before he set himself up for the shot. Miki scored our second goal shortly after with an equally well worked goal.
The later part of the half became somewhat of a circus with many missed easy opportunities for Geelong. The best miss of the day was Robbi’s, needing to tap-in a rebound from 3 meters out with the keeper on the ground and out of play, Robbi felshed his shot wide. Robbi now holds the crown for the best miss this year, taking it off Branne for his shpitz effort against North Geelong.
Breakwater scored their goal with the last play of the half, their striker caught our defense distracted and fired a strong shot past Shayka.
The second half saw Geelong weather considerable pressure from the desperate and agro Breakwater team. Geelong’s defense stood firm, holding out all attacks. Kristejan, Uki, Koore, Becker, & Zoki were all outstanding in defence.
Geelong launched numerous counter-attacks but none were successful in producing an additional goal. I can remember at least 5 one-on-ones with the Breakwater keeper that were missed.
Good win team, next week we are at North Geelong.
