Match Report from Mark Ephgrave
Another week another match report, the 5s do it again---The hard way! This time around though it was a match of ups, downs, ifs, buts and maybes.
If only we had started with 11 men, Maybe more than a couple of decisions went our way but the mad 5 minutes before half time when we didn’t know how to kick a ball on the pitch off the pitch to a team mate.
But having said that the final result was and did feel like a win but it could have been a whole lot different.
Tansley were on the front foot from off they went for the jugular trying to push home the downhill and man less advantage but to be fair to the lads we battled we pushed them as hard as they pushed us.
Tansley took the lead and to be fair it was a scrappy goal but a goal it was, after that 11v11 was restored and vamps started to play some good football and the equalizer was a joy to watch-Game on.
Sometimes you look at the score line and you put your hands up and go ok fair enough we deserve that but not this time the only thing we deserved was the way we let them take a half time lead of 4-1 the 5s shouldn’t look like they are playing walking or blind football but half time couldn’t come quick enough.
At half time the rally call was your vamps don’t let yourself or the club down show your vamps spirit and you will get the result we want but your going to have to earn it
And earn it they did it was a great second half performance and if it weren’t for a couple of blatant shoves, late challenges and a sin bin that seemed to last for ever we could have had the three points in the bag.
I cannot take away from the lads the effort they put in and maybe on another day it could have been different.
Sometimes you have to stand up and be counted this game proved that we can do that but you have to have the vamps spirit to do that.
Unlucky lads but on to next week’s game COYV.
