BNU 2 - 1 Elite
Write up Jay
After a long debate/argument/discussion about the curly hair guy from cutting stones, how good he was, that we played well, that team was much better, about formation Blah! Blah! Blah!
Finally it is Match day! Windy Wellington with no wind. Perfect pitch awesome atmosphere people turning up on time watching the Masters play. Tim forgetting the Teams Kit everyone blaming his hangover as the reason whereas Angus thinks it was just stupid of Tim. Haha.
Another fixture on Saturday eve - ALL BLACKS VS Decs, Niall & Ganesy.
With all the positive vibes and proposed new formation 3-5-2
It took just about 5 minutes for Orange to get settled with the new formation. CJ & Shane upfront with nothing but goals on their minds. Orange looked pretty strong dominating from midfield Lt. Priscott with the amazing play making skills switching on the right flank to Blake, Blake without making any mistake crossing the ball over to Shane being intercepted and turns out to be a counter attack.
Orange had great possesion through out half. CJ with his A-game on point making all defenders look bad, awesome ball control using his body and experience passing two defenders beating the goalkeeper side footed finish in the goal (Elite 1 - BNU 0 )
Everyone seems to like the new formation as it was attacking play displayed, great communication between Damo, Angus & Tim. BNU dominating the play and very much expected through balls to their one and only speedy striker not making any troubles to our defenders but a random accident (ball hitting on Jason's hand) on top of the box giving BNU a freekick and the score levels 1-1.
Orange trying to keep possesion Nik & Turk on the wing constantly running! Some awesome sliding tackles by Nik winning the ball. Turk looked like Gareth Bale using his speed and dribbling skills on the wing few one two passes with Greg and CJ trying to cross the ball to Shane but having no luck. It wasn't to long when BNU finds the back of the net this time with a deflection from Rori (OWN GOAL IN ELITE TERMS). Niall outperforming the speedy striker with a One o One save.
Last 10 minutes of the game was very fast. Orange on constant attacking game with N number of corners and N number of chances missed by Decs. Jay being overly ambitious and forgetting his position, few crosses and short passes creating chances but No luck again
Hopefully it was Last game for Angus and Jay!!
Very Tough one
2 - CJ- Impressive number 9, great ball control & amazing finish.
1 - Greg- Playmaking midfielder.
1 - Turk- Great skills on the wing and suprisingly helping Lads in defense for a change haha.
1 - Angus- Worked really hard always on Toes.
1 - Decs - a pity point. Pure and simple.
