With this writer away, it fell to assistant editor Segun Kehinde to provide the narrative for this weeks victory.
Jordan in goal, Rob right back, Mike left back, Shaun and Steve centre backs. Gavin right mid, Josh left mid, Scott and Hooky centre mid. Lee and Crabbs up front. Axe sub. Ref Gary.
The game kicked off with both sides struggling to control the ball, the hard
bumpy pitch was used as an excuse for some shocking first touches!
8 mins into the game came an opportunity for Josh to open the scoring. His shot was weak and fell to Steve 5 yards out who shot first time low to the left corner. The keeper knew nothing about the save that appeared to just hit him.
2 mins later, the oppo broke down the left, Steve cleaned up the danger but in doing so, over stretched and pulled his hammy.
Steve off Axe on. That'll teach Steve to come football on a Sunday morning sober!!!
STC began to dominate and 5 mins later Gav whipped in a great ball destined for Lee, only to be headed in by the defender. 1 nil.
1 min later Crabbs found himself in the middle of the penalty area with only the keeper to beat. His shot went wide of the goal. Josh could be heard saying ' sheg, I thought you said he was good '. In Crabbies defence, drinking vodka shots gone past 3am ain't gonna help!!
The game became Scrappy withe stc bossing the game. Jordan had nothing to do except for 2 high crosses which he claimed with safe hands.
Good display from Rob and Gav down the right.
The second half kicked off with no one taking notice of what was said during the half time break. For 15 mins nothing really happened except for a Blatant late tackle on Shaun, to which the defender cried about for ages. (Wanker).
Gavin was working tirelessly down the right and managed to swing the perfect ball in to meet Lee' s well timed header. Unfortunately not well timed enough as the ball went wide of the target.
Next came 2 chances for Crabbie, first a shot from inside the box and then a volley from just outside. One wide, one high but both good efforts.
On 60 mins came a long ball over the top. Lee found himself in the familiar position of one on one with the keeper. Lee dispatched a deft chip that sailed over the keeper's head and into empty net. Great finish to which he celebrated with a bow. I swear I could hear Lee muttering under breath 'now get off my back Slim'.
A crowd of Dolby supporters could be heard on the touchline, mostly laughing and describing Scott as 'diving about like a salmon' or 'Crabbie 'when is he going to move'.
On 80 mins, Lee found himself in the outside right position, Josh screaming for the ball in the box. With a neat turn, Lee beat his man and crossed the perfect ball for Josh to meet with a diving header, under pressure from defender and keeper.
3 minutes to go and Gav takes another corner. There's a collision in the box and one of the oppo is down injured. The oppo tired and beaten concede, gary blows the final whistle.
