P & I conquer rivals in second leg.
On 23/05/2016 P & I played a game of football months in the making which was decided on Monday night. A squad consisting of the captain (Myself) Jake, Scott, Jon, Michelle, Ashley, Dan and Lewis.
After losing in the first leg to Adept Power the P & I team was eager to put things right. With an influx of new signings for P & I, it looked like a different outfit from last season. Having no prior training coming into the game the team just had to rely on our ability and see what happened.
After a few goals from Scott the game settled a bit for a short period of time before Adept started to claw a few goals back from some lack luster defending from Jake Benfield. As the game progressed, it was up and down with goals from both sides including a cracker from our very own service control manager, picking out the left bottom hand corner with a shot from the outside of his right foot. A rare sight for Ash but he took his chance well. Jon and Lewis played pivotal parts adding their quality all over the pitch. My pick for man of the match or woman of the match was Michelle with some stellar defending and showing some of Adepts lads how to play proper football.
As the match progressed the game started opening up, with both teams making more mistakes and less people getting back (yeah unfortunately I was one of those players not getting back). That lead to Jake putting in some good defensive stops, (I suppose it was about time he pulled his finger out) add some more goals from Scott and Lewis and we had ourselves a victory.
Thank you for Adept for travelling all the way down to Portsmouth and we are very much looking forward to the third game to decide the best out of three.
