On Saturday morning 10/16/2021 our team hosted a rather controversial opponent. From Zlichin to Prague came Prague Raptors – a club where plays only one Czech player. The rest of the team consists of players from all over the world, including Romania, Bulgaria, England, Russia and France. The Raptors don’t hide the fact that they would like to move up the tournament table, and their results show that they take it absolutely seriously. Unfortunately, the match didn’t start well, as in the first minute there was a collision of two players, and the defender of the guest team had to leave the field, most likely with a broken nose. However, this couldn’t unsettle any team, so the struggle in the match, which soon became a hit of the entire tour, continued. Scoring chances were mainly created by our team, but we really managed to open the score only in the 19th minute of the game, when forward Khrolenok was able to declare himself. Since then, we have seen beautiful actions from both teams, but the score has not changed. And only on the 30th minute Khrolenok, having orientated himself best of all in the opponent’s penalty area, increased the gap in the score to 2:0. The Raptors didn’t give up and continued to carry out rather dangerous attacks. One of them was realized alone by Prince Oswu. With his beautiful game, he managed to reduce the match score to 2:1. Equal play continued in the second half, in which neither team had a noticeable advantage. The technically well-equipped guest team was able to torture us like no other team in this tournament. But in the end, it turned out that our team was a little more prepared, and in the 80th minute Chechelnitsky increased the lead of the home team. The rest of the match was calm, without much danger for the goalkeepers. On the last whistle of the referee, the score was 3:1.
