To say this match was not entertaining at least would most certainly be a lie. From beginning to end, both teams had the spectators and coaches gasping, not knowing who was going to be victorious until that final whistle, where the Falcons won the game with an impressive 5-2 lead.
Almost immediately after the game began it was clear that both teams were eager to do the best they possibly could. Within fifteen minutes there was the first goal, which showed off Armadale’s impressive teamwork and high skill level, after Dougall was asked to do a corner kick, in which he undoubtedly did not expect any of his teammates to even get hold of the ball, never mind score, however this did happen, as despite having players from Petersburn surrounding the goals, and also standing only inches away from him, he was able to pass the ball to Erskine who subsequently scored.
Only minutes later Petersburn evened out the score by performing another skillful and well thought out goal, after Andrew did a corner kick, with Sharp ending up with the ball, however being only a few inches directly in front of the goal, Kane took this opportunity to score Petersburn’s first goal, much to the spectators’ surprise.
Midway through the first half there was impressive teamwork from both sides as Armadale attempted to score, as at first it seemed as though Erskine was definitely about to score a goal, being almost directly in front of the goals and having no opposing players in sight, however the goalkeeper only just managed to block the goal, then moments after this incident Andrew managed to block Sharp from scoring by moving in front of him just as he was about to kick the ball, thereafter getting control of the ball.
Ten minutes before the half time whistle, Armadale once again showed great teamwork after Sharp, who was midfield but surrounded by Petersburn players, passed the ball to Dougall, who cleverly ran close to the goal, and noticing that none of the Petersburn players were going to catch up to him, scored a goal for Armadale, putting them in the lead.
Yet again Armadale scored, this time by Sharp, who along with his teammates was eager to raise his team’s score even more, and did so by getting the opportunity to do a free kick, where the ball was only a number of inches away from the goal, and with no Petersburn players but the goalkeeper defending the goals, he raised Armadale’s lead to 3-1, just as the whistle was blown.
