Write-up by Niall
The game was on a knife-edge (thanks Roger).
It was 5-1 to the Elite.
The Elite needed something, nay, someone, to step up and take the game by the scruff of its neck. Someone to lead the Elite to its destiny. A hero, if you will. A modern day Archie Gemmill:
The savior was ready.
Before gracing the field with his presence, Niall considered some of the action he witnessed just minutes prior:
To warm up and get into the game, Niall took a wonderful pass from Adam (more on that wee beauty later) first time and laid it off to Pat, whose deft chip almost had our hero in for a quick goal. Alas, the defender clattered Niall with a challenge that our esteemed referee deemed fair:
Niall chested the ball down in his stride, beat the last defender with a deft touch, and then rifled the ball into the bottom corner. It looked a little like this (but better):
And that was that. Game over. 6-1 Elite.
3 – Adam – you will never see a better assist than that. Awesome.
2 – Ross – got dragged off, allowing Niall to come on and score the goal of the season
1 – CJ – did a good job correctly calling Nialls goal onside.
