Match RECAP:  United Grenadiers

A lot of players were absent this weekend. We started with only one substitute available. The weather was gloomy and so the spirit of our team.  The game was just at the early stage and a controversial situation had our defenders stopping to call for an offside, just to have Kingwood make an easy unchallenged goal.  Bayron who was injured and did not want to play realized that we are in bad position and offer to give it a try. When he came in the game his presence was felt almost immediately.

Bayron caught a nice long pass from Sami, and after a wild run with two defenders on his back, he passed right in front of the goal to have Ronnie walk the ball in.  Bayron changed the face of our attacking power and he passed to Anel who scored with confidence from inside the box to have us going in half time with an advantage. 

By this time we thought we have this game figured out and with minor adjustments we will have an easy second half.  Wrong assumption. The relaxation in our part helped Kingwood tie the game with a nice free kick and even take advantage with a goal that came after a series a wrong passes and missed opportunities to clear the ball.  Then the heavy artillery of Grenadiers (for this game) Richard and Alvaro were thrown in to the battle. The strength of the team and a gladiator called Bayron refused to let game die. And indeed, he scored two more goals bringing sunshine in a cloudy weekend. 

It proved again the talent of this team is very deep.  All players fought greatly on the field, confronting a terrible rain, a muddy field and a worthy adversary to justly have their effort rewarded with a victory.
