Edukick Manchester 2 – 0 MIFA

It was a great start to the season for the Edukick side with a victory over local side MIFA. Playing at home in their first game of the campaign, the Edukick side could have been on the back foot from the start with 4 of their players only joining training just 2 days prior. After a shaky start where MIFA put them under a lot of pressure, the Edukick side settled into a calm and controlling game. The home side keeper pulled off some great saves to keep them in the game early on with two big threats for MIFA up front being strong and tough to play against. Pablo playing at the beck controlled the game after the first 10 minutes and never really looked troubled after that. Matthew, playing at left back, looked good going forward and the midfield/strikers started to press well midway through the first half. That pressure paid off when the MIFA keeper played the ball out to the right, Edukick pressed as they’d been working on in training that week to force aa mistake, and Lorenzo hit a great strike to put the home side 1-0 up, a lead they held to the break. As the second half kicked off, tiredness showed with the Edukick side, but they dug in and worked hard, containing the threats from the MIFA side and coming close on two occasions, Matthew hitting the post with a header that really should have been a second for Edukick. Fantastic defending kept the home side in the lead, and as MIFA pushed on towards the end of the game to try to level it, the home side broke quick, with some great link up play to slot Kehshan in for a run at goal who converted to make it 2-0 with 4 minutes to go. A great first performance by the Edukick side and a well-deserved victory. Coach Nigel Keogh said “A well organised performance from the lads who looked to play football when possible. The lads worked hard and thoroughly deserved the victory over a strong opposition, by showing determination and teamwork the lads fought hard towards the end of the game to keep the clean sheet. A great one handed save from the keeper and the build-up play to Matthew hitting the post come to mind”.
