A classic JPL game!
Both sides came into this game sitting near the top of the league and in the away tie, GPS won comfortably at home. BCS seemed like the brighter team from the kick off and creating 2 or 3 good chances but couldnt convert. At the other end, the BCS was tested and held on to thwart a number of good GPS counter attacks. BCS made the break through first when a foul in the box resulted in a penalty. Captain Macy stepped up to score another well struck kick.
GPS came back again creating many good chances with a number of great crosses flashing accross the face of goal but with no end product, but it was moments after that the away team got their goal.
This set up for an entertaining game, with boths teams defending well from the constant counter attacks from each others forwards. A goal was coming but it was sitting on a knife edge as to which way it would go, but it was BCS who made the break through. After some prolonged forward play and some ping pong in the box, forward George Anderson calmly slotted the ball passed the keeper who had made 2 good saves just before hand. BCS could have had another but for another great save and last gas defending on the line.
The game finished 2-1, and both teams knew they had been in a highly competitive game of football, another great showing of what being a JPL team is all about. Thanks to Graham and his players and BCSU wish GPS the best of luck for the remaining games of the season.
