Magpies vs Celts

So last weekend, Riverside Magpies played Formosa Celts.  Before the game I was feeling confident, but a little worried of who was gonna replace Stefan because of his suspension.  We put George in for Stefan at left back and he did very well.  Getting stuck in and stopping attacks.

The game started badly for us, a little mistake from Matteo let the Celts take a lead within the first 5 minutes. This time however, us Magpies we're used to conceding early by this point and we kept our head up instead of letting it drop.  We fought back and equalized through some superb wanktastic play between Ashley, Helmer and Colin.  Some great passing and moving down the right wing from Helmer and Ashley and then popped it over to Colin and he smashed it in!

The second goal was great fighting by Ashley, he battled hard to keep the ball in on the right touchline and managed to get the ball across the goalmouth, cue mad scramble then Carlos tommy toe punted it in from 1 yard out!  Brilliant!  This was the first time we managed to come back from a goal down and win a game which is a good break through for our team.

There was one scary moment near the end where the Celts got a free kick just outside our box, and they smashed it onto the outside of the post.  Apart from that big Abs and Gareth marshaled the defence very well and give them not many chances.

New defensive addition, the brick wall that is Abs!
Roll on the Badgers, so we can take part in the Badgers cull the UK is having right now.
