Reds pipped at post in 9 goal thriller
Friday night and Ramsey, Batesy and DJ toasting the paps of Jura before ambling back to the ranch. Saturday morning and Ramsey up to sort the nets and welcome Vernon to a slightly crunchy Magna Meadows. Buchy still injured and Arbuckloa away and so LC lined up with the king in goals, Camsterazi, Francisco, JC and Shaymar at the back, Jonno and Redders anchoring midfield, Dunners, Cotterillo and G force across the middle and Frazola up top. Tobierski and Big W on the bench. Alexandro restricted to Lino duties
The first half was even in territory and possession but like the previous week not in goals. Two balls over the top not dealt with and LC find themselves 0-2 down. Frazola a great chance blocked and a left footed shot tipped round the post by the keeper and a G force free-kick hits the crossbar with the keeper beaten. Then up the other end and a strong run from the winger who cuts inside and LC now 0-3 down and looking dead and buried. Tobierski now on and a left foot shot for 1-3.
Second half and LC pressing to get back in it and a perfect corner headed on and bundled in for Tobierski. 2-3 and game on. LC have a couple of good chances to equalize but just thwarted. Then a free-kick for Vernon floated in and not dealt with and knocked in for 2-4. LC crank it up a gear though and Frazola turns the full back and blasts over the keeper for 3-4 and then after a great move, Redders on the end for 4-4.
With about 5 to go the Vernon centre forward not closed down and places it in the corner and unfortunately 4-5 and Vernon run the clock down. On balance LC should have had a draw. Great fightback but poor defending costly at the end of the day. Tobierski MOM with Frazola, G force and Redders the best of the rest. You reds!
