Back In The Game
After a couple of weeks out through yet another one of my injuries, I got back to playing football today just in time for the wind down to the end of the season which is just 4 weeks away.
Today we played Rainham Eagles and it’s a team that I always seem to score against and so I was determined to carry on that tradition. Eagles are bottom of the league and have conceded more than 130 goals this season and so the odds were looking good.
Being the better team, we took the lead after about 10 minutes and then laid siege to their goal but couldn’t find another goal. After about 25 minutes we won a corner and I pushed up and sat on the edge of the box and when the ball was only half cleared to me I volleyed it back into the top right corner to give us a 2-0 lead!
I nearly scored a second from another corner when I challenged the keeper with the ball in the air. I beat him to it but my header hit the crossbar and bounced away and we couldn’t score on the rebound.
As it was only my first game in a few weeks I came off after an hour just to make sure I didn’t strain my muscle and the defence held on to keep a clean sheet and we scored another to make it 3-0.
