Tardan Stallions Match 10: Stats and Facts

Tardan Stallions vs Mad Tramp
Played 10am Saturday 26th of February 2005
Venue: Westwood Astro Pitch 2

So it turns out Nayfe is a lazy tusk. He can't be arsed to write a match report – FACT! So what happened I hear you cry? Well we lost. Always the same. In this case it was 17–6 but it could have been worse, or better.

Being lazy also I can't really be bothered with writing a full report and my memory of the match is a little hazy. They scored the first, and to be fair it was a good finish leaving Baker on his return to goal no chance. A few moments later a long range bullet from Hadris went in off the post and it was 1–1. Even in the early stages the game was stretched but sadly the opposition's finishing was excellent while with Pond and Bellamy missing a couple of chances a piece. At half time it looked all over (and it was) at 8–1.

The Stallions came out with renewed vigor and in their traditional style took kick off and conceded a goal within about 30 seconds. The second half though had several positives as listed here:

  • Another Bellamy hat trick (the man is on fire… not literally)
  • A first ever Dave Pickles goal
  • An AMAZING 5 minute spell in goal from Stez (see my comment – no I'm not ashamed of the self-promotion)
  • No new injury worries.

A final note upon a certain special someone's request ;-) listed here are the negatives of the match:

  • We lost
  • Nayfe (as he was shit)
  • Naif (as he was crap)
  • Nathaniel Christopher (as he was a pile of turd)
  • NC Stallions super defender wasn't so super but in fact was SHIT

  1. I feel I've stuck in my claim for goalkeeper of the season. Got my angles all wrong to concede one goal, but as Stallion keepers go a ratio of only conceding one every six minutes is a bit tasty. Obviously it wasn't all me, its the whole defensive unit that deserves the credit. We had a great positional understanding out there, which was that I would be in goal and they would be quite literally 'any how'. Just imagine, if we had that sort of goals against per minute ratio for the entire game we would have managed to lose still (7–6). fact.

  2. Record breaking performance today:

    – Most goals scored in a game

    – Most goals conceded?
