On September 12th, the 7th tournament 1B of the Prague League was held between Sportovní Klub Střešovice 1911 «B» and MSM Football Academy.
This match was a little bit specific for us because of the opponents who played the tough defence and focused on the breaks from the first minutes of the game (probably because they remembered our last game when we won 11:1).
So, it was pretty complicated for us to reach the opponents’ penalty area because of the occupation of the hosts in their part of the field. We totally controlled the ball during the first part but managed to strike only one foal when Vadim Chechelnitsky kicked the ball from the middle distance right to the target off the goalkeeper. Nothing radical happened at the beginning of the second half; the opponent team continued the defence tactic. At the 68th minute, after the mistake of the hosts, Horlenok increased the score to 0:2! However, at the 71st minute, the rare host’s game on our part of the field ended by taking our goals; the opponent managed to reduce the score to 1:2 and dramatize the match giving hope to the opponent’s fans. However, our team did not lose the spirit and in 2 minutes increased the score to 1:3 and controlled the game till the end, without new goals. It is necessary to express respect for the opponent, who in their game, based on the experience of the last joint match, managed to play with us more balanced and carefully, which also corresponded to a pretty modest result.
We also wanted to point out that before the match on the website of Střešovice, a rather provocative match forecast appeared where we were called “international machine”. After the match itself, the name of the “international machine” was ironically denied since the result of the match 1:3 was not enough of the status of the “international machine” for them. We accepted such kind pranks towards our team, wish Střešovice good luck, and look forward to the next match!
The match result – Sportovní klub Střešovice 1911 «B» – MSM Football Academy 1:3 (0:1)
