New season - back to winning ways!

New season - back to winning ways!

Well rested after a whole weeks break from football, 15 guys showed up today all set to get a great start to the new season.

Coach Schønne arrived a bit wasted, but all forgiven as he brought the news that he had managed to get a late sign-up from our deadly father/son duo John and Jo(h)nas. That turned out to be an important move!
The first 20 minutes were not pretty from our side, but from here we started to be more patient on the ball, waiting for the right moments. One of them came after 30 minutes, where Barbarians defense was taken out by some great short passing that left John with a tap-in assisted by his son.
1-0 at halftime.
Second half was opened by a sublime free-kick from the Locomotive, who sent the ball in a perfectly controlled curve over the wall and in the top corner without a chance for their keeper. Brilliant - but as our club president stated on the chat: "About time he scored on one of those!". Most likely he will claim the right to take the few next ones now as well.
Throughout second half we gave away quite a number of chances but luckily Barbarians strikers seemed intimidated by Riber in our goal and instead our ice-man John showed how it´s done as he dived into a corner to make it 3-0. With 15 mintues to go Niels closed the game after some fine moves inside the box making the end result 4-0.
3 points for the new league table and a clean sheet for Riber, who was also picked as our MOM after many great saves throughout the game. Excellent Sunday!
Thanks to Barbarians for another game in good spirit.
