It was Friday 13th and with the clock showing just 5 minutes left and the Exco/Team Reps XI 2-4 down against a class Dynamics team it needed a touch of continental flair to earn a hard fought draw and that was exactly what happened firstly the mercurial boot of Lucas Torres put the ball on the sixpence that is Aaron’s head to reduce the arrears to just one goal and then Byoung’s emphatic finish from 10 yards just seconds to go ensured the game ended all square at four apiece.
Yesterday saw the third game against the Refs this season with Adam Bilbey leading the line with aplomb and coming away with a brace, he was matched by Luca (also with a double) pulling the strings in midfield against a spirited HKFRA team that deserved a goal or two more. Final score was 5-1 with the other goal coming from the trusted left boot of left half A N Other.
