There are also some more action shots of South Zeal United playing at home in April. I confess I can’t remember who the opposition was now - but maybe that is just as well as we lost that day. But I do remember that it was a good game.
Ed: I suspect they were playing "The Beacon Knights", as this was the only team they lost to in April. You can follow the league here
The opposition put in a cracking shot at our goal and the ball hit the bottom of the crossbar and it somehow or other bounced back up and hit the crossbar again before someone was able to clear it away. It is hard to think it didn’t actually cross the line if I am honest, but then I was standing by the other goal, in completely the wrong place – as usual - but, well, I can still have an opinion can’t I? Everybody else had one that’s for sure.
Still, it all evened up when a free kick was awarded against SZU. The opposition lobbed the ball into the net while the SZU team were holding a philosophical discussion with the referee about the merits or otherwise of his decision. SZU may have won the debate for all I know – but they lost the match! Just click on the picture again to see more.
