Consolation prize

So this afternoon we took on the team that finished 4th in the league, and players for the team that finished 5th were allowed to make up the numbers on both teams. Even if I do say so myself, I played pretty well, at left back and right back (and even one brief foray towards the end of the game as right winger), whenever they did make it past me, I would force them out wide, or crossover with the central defender as he closed them down.

The game was even at 0-0 with shots from both sides, although their shots were all saved, and 3 of our shots beat the keeper, only to hit either the post or the crossbar... Finally one of our players was brought down in the box, 1/2 way through the 2nd half. He converted the penalty, then, as they tried to chase the game, we scored 2 more. To end at 3-0, and finish as the 3rd place team for spring 2007. While we didn't win the whole tournament, at least we ended the season with a well played win.
