Men’s Sunday Lazarou League, Pontcanna Fields
A brave display from a depleted Dragons squad, ten men taking the field against the league’s hot team and, after gaining their bearings, playing the entire second half without conceding a goal. In fact, we won the last 46 minutes 1-0!
Muzz’s penalty—after a clatter on Fudge while fighting for a high ball—was the “winner”, but the relentless defending and positional discipline were the outstanding features on a difficult day for flamboyance.
Well done Anthony for the half-time speech, Neil for getting well and truly stuck in on his 11-a-side debut, Dave W for ably filling Ryan B’s monstrous boots in goal, Amos for running the line, and the many supporters and walking wounded for cheering us on against the odds.
Dragons scorer: Muzz 45
Cardiff Dragons: Dave W; Neil, Chris G, Muzz, John A; Mehdi, Fudge, Emyr (C), Darrin; Ryan B
