Quick Start, Slow Finish.

Once again, apologies for my tardiness, fell asleep on the sofa and didn't wake up till time for work the next day. Too many late nights with the Shoutster in the New Inn..... Still we needed a bit of a drink after our showing down the Wood. Even before we kicked off, the omens did not look good. Clogs was carrying a slight strain, Shouty had been doing insanely long shifts at work and I had other things on my mind, and to be honest would rather not have played. But in spite of all that, we got off to a flyer. Within no time we were 5-0 up. Everything we touched went in. But the MoFo were making chances, and we were riding our luck. Then, at the first goalie shift, it all went pear shaped. Our lead was over hauled in double quick time, as our defense evaporated. I took one ferocious shot in the chest off Dead Eye. Still feeling it now, two days later. It was a great block, or would have been a great one if the ball hadn't spun backward and trickled into the net. The Gay Lords were on top now, and we were struggling to hold on. And the our luck turned from bad to to worse. Clogs had to retire to goalie, and the jig was up. Now I know I'm making a lot of excuses here, and I don't mean to do a disservice to the JMF. They played very well, particularly at the back. They soaked up our pressure, and made us pay on the break. The usually profligate King Dave and Dr Shotgun filled their boots, scoring a hat full alongside the ever reliable D-Eye, who also made a shed load of great saves. Salty Scott was also on song, and even a lame Jamon played his part. Bravo to the shirt lifters. Hopefully next week we will be in better shape to try and regain our two game lead.
