Cardiff Dragons FC 2 – 3 Cardiff Social FC

Match Report

Trelai Park, Men’s Sunday Lazarou League

13th September 2015

A second successive late heartbreaker for the Dragons, who again looked in control after goals by Mehdi and Emyr had twice put them in front, only for a marginal onside decision from a free kick and a late counter-attacking winner to deny the team at least a deserved point.

Injuries and absences having already stretched the squad to its limits, the enforced withdrawal of talismanic defender Muzz midway through the second half was a major blow against very physical opponents, but the Dragons appeared to be weathering the storm bravely until the unfortunate late concessions, even pressing for a late equaliser only for Liam to be denied by an excellent point-blank save.

If the team continue to show this level of performance, however, there is no doubt the results will soon follow. Keep the faith, boys!

Another good job by Anthony on the touchline, and thanks to all our supporters on the day.
