Game of two halves!
KCCFC entertained Bear Flat on Sunday morning with the opponents in search of their first points in this league campaign. The referee for the fixture hadn't arrived therefore both managers arranged to referee a half each. This turned out to be very controversial in the first half as the referee for the opposition decided to award them a very dodgy penalty decision after 10 minutes being played. Matt Hubbard was judged to have handled the ball when defending against the right winger. No one could quite believe what happened, however justice took place when the centre forward fired wide from 12 yards. KCCFC not used to shooting down in the first half looked pretty shaky at times with not much communication taking place after the latest binge took place on Saturday evening. However KCCFC took the lead against the run of play when the referee awarded a second penalty this time for the home side, some good work from new signing Neil Pincott ensured that the referee was given no other choice but to award a penalty. This time Rich Watkins stepped up to the plate and fired in the penalty. 1-0 up after 20 minutes play with the away side looking the more dangerous. However it wasn't too long before the gap between the two sides was increased when some smart work from Marcus Smith collecting the ball on the half way before producing a fantastic solo run and firing the ball with the outside of his right foot into the far corner. 2-0 before the half hour mark and both sides looking stunned still at some of the refereeing decisions, it remained 2-0 til half time. Second half Iron Mike was given the whistle and the game resumed. It didn't take long for the opposition to hit back when a fantastic striker from the striker who had missed the penalty in the first half made up for his earlier mistake firing into the top left hand corner leaving goalkeeper Hare standing still. The game continued at a quick pace but the football remaining sloppy, the opposition looked the more likely of the two sides to get on the scoresheet again however it proved to be too hard a challenge. 2-1 victory for the KCCFC side who recorded their second league win for the campaign. The afternoon's entertainment will last long in the memories of whoever arrived to witness it. Next week no game, man of the match Ian Field for his continual running and assisting Marcus for the second goal.
