Burnham Junior Football Club

Another closely fought draw

by Derek Finan

We have played the Windsor Blacks a few times now with mixed fortunes, but on each occasion we have been treated to an exciting match and this was no different.
The weather was warming up and to add to the difficulties we only had 7 players (no subs) so the boys were going to have to dig deep in the latter stages of the game.
Burnham opened the scoring with a run on Goal by Okba who slotted the ball into the bottom left corner. Chances came and went for both Teams but it was the Blacks who capitalised before half time.
The second half was much the same with Burnham possibly edging the majority of Goal chances, Then half way through, Drew beat a player and took a shot which the keeper bravely got a hand to and the ball was followed in by Marco. Sadly for Windsor, the keeper had to go off injured due to the ferocity of the shot but sadly for us the Goal was disallowed as play was stopped. In the last seconds, Cameron, who took over in Goal made a couple of good saves to ensure we got a well-deserved draw.
Well done boys!!!!

Special thanks to Tim and James for holding the fort in Lee and martin’s absence.
