#HBUFC v Jomo Powers

A Saturday full of football fun as HBUFC return to Castle League action after mid-season break. Jomo powers did well to capitalise on a poor defensive effort from HBUFC early in the game, and netted a one-on-one goal against goalkeeper Kyle; putting themselves 1-0 up 4 mins into the game.

There after, the rest of the 1st half was all HBUFC, with the odd effort on goal coming from Jomo powers. Dillon and Zwai looked very strong upfront having several shots each on goal in the 1st 30 mins. With Glenny and siya”Viera” taking control in midfield, they won the ball in 35th min in the centre of the park, a couple of passes later and Glenny netted a lovely floating shot into the top right corner.

Zlatan did excellently on the right wing, putting his defender under immense pressure from consistently beating him in one-on-one’s, but was not able to create another goal before the half. First half ends 1-1.

When the 2nd half begins both teams are playing good football and it looks like it could be anyone’s game. Head coach Ricardo Philips realised it was time for a change in the 65th min and brought on ‘free kick hero’ Chad for HBUFC’S brightest youngster Chrissandro at Centre Back, and Sinky for Giano at Left Wing.

Both Sinky and Chad did well coming into the game, Chad with a free kick on target forcing Jomo Powers keeper to hit it out for a corner, and Sinky with surging runs up the left wing, but couldn’t provide the final killer pass into the box for someone to score.

Ronnie replaced Siya”Viera” at defensive midfield and immediately made his presence felt with a great performance.

HBUFC then went 2-1 down around 75 mins into the game as Jomo Powers exposed our defence and got a good goal.

The HBUFC lads kept on pushing forward and gave the crowd very entertaining football having several shots at goal in the last 15 mins of play.

Their hard work paid off as Zwai netted the 2-2 equaliser 5 mins before the final whistle.

With both teams playing entertaining football, the crowd erupted into life and the whole perimeter of the field echoed in cheers and and complaints, giving the afternoon a good atmosphere.
