JMF Break Streak

All good things come to an end, and our four game win streak was no exception, as an injury plagued Elite bravely fell to the cock munchers of the JMF. Clogs and Shotgun were well short of match fitness, and our lack of mobility eventually caught up with us late in the game. We were under pressure from the off, but solid defending, sharp keeping and a dash of luck helped keep the MoFo at bay. We were also playing well on the break, and every time the jism gobblers took the lead, we sprung back to equalize. The main protagonist was Shotgun, whose finishing was exemplary. Clogs was carrying a knock, so was not at his mobile best, but his keeping was excellent, and after weathering the JMF storm we sprung our trap, and jumped into the lead. We finally had the upper hand, and the game seemed to be there for the taking, it just needed a free scoring member of the side to take up the challenge, and I reckon the game would have been ours. But that responsibility fell on my shoulders, and after weeks of good scoring form, I picked the worst possible time to hit a drought. The fact is that my shooting wasn't that bad. More or less every effort was on target, but they kept hitting the lump timber that was left minding the goals, King Dave. In fact he didn't save one shot. They just kept hitting him. Over and over. It was just about at this moment that the JMF decided maybe if they started taking a few of their chances they might win. Which is how we lost by five goals. Dead Eye and Luklear were foremost among the scorers, and even the Child Catcher nearly broke his duck. Before I finish up this post, it would be remiss of me not too mention the Shoutster, who put in a valiant effort. Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week.
