It's a rematch for Strikers as they face Osasco again to hopefully get 5th place. We're playing in Broughshane a county that is a Strikers supportive town. We hope to change our result into a win this time to take a cup this time.
A lot more passing from both teams this time because the field is small. Osasco take a sneaky free kick and the keeper parries it and they score from the rebound, but the guy who scored was offside. Osasco possess very well and they breakdown Strikers's defense a lot. Strikers steal possession from Osasco in their half and someone crosses it and Coby slides in for the tap and it hits the far post. Osasco then put a simple through ball and the center back hits it to the top right for a goal. First half ends 1-0 Osasco.
Strikers come out strong as they are hungry for the win. Junior saves a crucial game and one on one that keeps us in the game. A corner is hit in and the ball bounces in the box and Osasco hit the post once again. Coby shoots a shot that must need a keeper to save after a fast counterattack.
The game ends in a 1-0 loss like last time, but it was definitely closer this time. We were very unlucky in our chances and it only took Osasco to pounce on one mistake we had. In all, it was a great effort from Strikers who definitely gave Osasco a run for their money.
