Report by Randy Bloomshield, Scarborough News Of The World
As soccer ties go, this was no soccer match. This was a vile arsed 90 minutes of absolute dross coming from the away sides side-line and players which unfortunately ruined a game which the Giants had been hugely looking forward too.
"I'll be round to bang your mum tonight and your wife while you watch" was the pick of a lovely bunch of slogans and calls uttered by the boys from Waterloo, who earned 5 yellow cards for their efforts. We are all still trying to work out how reds were not issued. What a shambles! Obviously not including the red to the opposition manager who was asked to stand 15 yards away….like that mattered.
Anyway, soccer action, Tommy Duckworth returned to the Goal Sports domain and capped his first appearance with a real nice goal on 32 minutes, sweeping past the keeper after some right nice footwork which he obviously learnt off his kid over the summer as he’s never had that in his locker before.
Within 5 minutes the nice set of lads equalised as the Giants tried, and failed with an offside trap, and the ball was inserted past 1st team debutant Charlie Hall to score the equalisation goalshot.
Stubbings went close with a few from range, as the game set itself in to a scrappy affair which was sadly the theme for the whole 120 minutens.
First Period - 1 v 1
A horrible looking knee injury to another Giant, Glen Hopkins stopped play for a good few minutes as we wish Glen well as he makes his way to Scarborough hospital this evening. The injury saw a rejig to personnel as John Grayston returned to the fray, and it would be dat guy who put the Giants up to 2 to 1 on 72 minutes as he finished a sweaty goal from 5 yards after good work from Dog Whitehead.
Once again within minutes of taking the lead -it had gone, as a clearance to the edge of the DBZ by Harold Denness was not closed down anywhere near quick enough by his Giants pals, and a pinged effort made its way through a plethora of limbs and in to Hall's corner of the soccer goal interior giving him no chance.
Hall would be the hero minutes later as he saved a deathstrike on 76 minutes, flinging himself like a cat who had been scared of a cucumber to push the ball on the white beam and save the day for the short term.
Full Time - 2 v 2
The first ever extra time period of time in history was upon the Giants and subs John Grayston and Mike Greymar both had huge chances to send the boys in front, with the latter firing wide a head kick from 8, and Grayston being foiled when clear 1 on 1.
The remainder of the game saw Waterloo power clear and win the tie 5 v 2 and we wish them all the very best in their quest to be the hardest and biggest set of ball bags in the history of the soccer world!
