Legends Run It Close

07/07/2018 Match Report Event

The Legends lose 2-1 to the current squad.

Both teams started well and the Legends could have taken the lead with Dave Harris forcing a reaction save from Lewis Baker, then Dee Mulholland laid in Steve Fraser only to shoot just wide.  It was the current squad that broke the deadlock however when a mix up between Kev Hawke and Ross Thompson let in Manuel Desth to tap in the opener.  The current team doubled their lead with a solo run by Kyle Tridentine-Wilkie who went through the defence to slot in.

The second half was an even half with both sides having good chances and both goalkeepers making great saves.  With 20 minutes remaining, the Legends were then awarded a penalty when Paul McNeill was upended in the box and Mike Masterman coolly slotted home to halve the deficit.  This made for a nervy end to the game for the current squad but they held on for the win.

The Legends run the current squad close with a slender 2-1 defeat.
