Coalville vs St Saviours

For the first time this season St Saviours manged to get their strongest squad together- except the goalie, who is surely enjoying his time in Italy. It showed when St Saviours were quick of the blocks and soon started to gel into a flowing pass and move rythem, which caused the oppsition a few problems straight from the start. The pressuere on the oppisition team was sustained and eventually paid off when after good work on the left hand side Emma was triped in the box. Referee ponited straight to the spot and St Saviours were presented a glorious opportunity to take a deserve lead. Kofi stepped up and calmly converted the penalty leaving the keeper no chance. Coalville were reduce to high balls, which the St Saviours defence seems to be dealing with quite comfortably and stopping the quite pacey Coalville strikers from capitilising any chances. St Saviours created chances after chances and a second goal was surely imment, but one has to give credit to the Coalville defence, especially the cantre back who seemed to win every header and loose ball- thus keeping them in the game. The Coalvilled keeper was on top form and prevented St Saviours from taking a comfortable lead after some impressives saves. Coalville staretd to get into game and soon created a golden opportunity with a one and one situation on goal, however the the striker seemed to scuffed the ball and it went wide- a let off the St Saviours defence. Second half Coalville started to create some noticable chances and eventually against the game play equalised from a 35 yard free kick, which no doubt the keeper should have saved it. After some refereeing decisons against the away team St Saviours started to loose their heads- which has cost them so many times this season and they paid for it when Coalville were awarded a penatly. The ball seemd to be on target but due to a dodgy net it appeared to go straigt thrugh the net and the ref decided it was a goal kick which did not go down well with the home side. After some shambolic incidences the game was resumed and the away team created some marvelous chances to go ahead, but agian the Coalville keeper wasnt having none of it and kept score level with some outstanding saves. And as the ball was cleared off the line from the homeside St Saviours started thinking it was just not their day. It was to get even worst for the away team. Coalville took a shock lead just minutes to play when keeper fumbled a tstraight forward cross presenting the home team with a simple tap in. Feeling hard done St Saviours mounted the pressuere and when only 30 seconds to play Daniel scored an absolute belter from 25 yards passing a crowded penalty box and leaving the keeper routed. There was no time left to resume the match and St Saviours snatched a point from a match which they should have wrapped up in the first place. Based on this kind of form St Saviours should be a force to reckon with next season fif they manage to get the first team out on a regular basis
