Losing Streak Continues

An unremarkable game was played out down the Wood last night, as the JMF eased to a three goal victory. From the off the had the measure of an out of sorts Elite. Dead Eye and Luklear had their eye in, and scored some fine goals. In fact the score could have been a lot worse had it not been for some fine keeping from Euro, Padawan and Clogs. In fact the Righteous did well to pull the score back to respectability from an eight goal deficit. But the seemingly unbeatable Euro Elite have not been able to field their starting five for over two months, and the momentum that had been built up during the early skirmishes has disapated totally. Still there is plenty of time in the season to recapture our form. especially as holiday time is fast approaching, and next week sees the female dodgers lose two of their starting five. Time to turn the tables? we shall see.

Moment of Match
There were a couple of contenders. Luklear War's brilliant goal. Dead Eye's dribble and score. Euro's slow motion save. Clogs backward fall with nobody near him. But the winner was something of a rarity. Big Phil the Octopus scored a goal. And it wasn't a toe poke, or fluke either. He brought the ball under control, looked up and curled it into the far corner. A fine effort, even though it was past Jamon, whose movement between the sticks is reminiscent of a fully grown oak tree.

JMF- The Mercenary, Luclear War, Dead Eye, Jamon and King Dave

EURO E- Euro Bri, Clogs, Big Phil the Octopus, Padawan and Crespo
