Match Report:

GRM were caught frozen staring into the headlights at kick off in Rosehill when Granville Rage punished them with probably the quickest goal of the season. Straight up the middle in 6 seconds flat. GOAL 0-1. Lucas did manage to get a hand to it, but it was struck to well for our keeper.

It took Magic a few minutes to recover from the shock anf the boy had to weather a storm of shots and free kicks from an energetic looking Rage outfit.

Once Magic got started they played well. Winger Jake got in the first shot in which was well saved by the Rage goalie. Shortlie after, the goalie somehow fumbled the pass out straight to the feet of Chris on the 6 yard box leaving an open goal. The ball was well controlled but the shot was unfortunately way past.

The first half showed great ball work from Magic, building moves from the back and great skill at working the ball down the siders. Rage looked super dangerous on the break with their attack pushing the Magic defence to the limit.

On the 27th min Magic again had a chance to equalize with another move worked out the back line. This time the cross went to the feet od Tyko whose shot was deflected just wide.

The SECOND HALF saw more breaking runs from Magic in additionto their possession play. Rage came out strong and were unlucky not to score twice in the first few minutes. Hark work from the defence managed to put them off balance enough to miss their shots.

Five minutes in and Jake was brought down heavily on the right wing. The free kick found Nick on the egde of the box and he released an excelent strike that narrowly went wide of the post.

The equaliser finally came in the 47th min from another great move down the right. Cameron's forst cross cam bouncing back out, but the second found Jake on the edge of the 6 yard box for an easy tap in to the exposed Rage goal.
GOAL 1-1.

One minte later Magic made it two, with an identical goal to the first. This time it was Jake making the cross taht landed on Tyko's boot on the edge of the 6 yard box. It crossed the line with a Rage defender desperatley trying to stop it, only to rocket the ball further into the top of their net.
GOAL 2-1.

The last 10 mins saw Rage desperatel trying to recover a point, woth the defence and keeper saving the bacon's bacon. Clearance after clearance with powerful headers from stopper Adam who played exceptionally well under lights and a fantastic punch save from Lucas. Max and Ryan continued to prove too frustrating for the Rage strike team.

In the last second of the match Rage lobbed in a high one but keeper Lucas easily rose to the challenge.

Great effort from all involved and 3 well-erant points awway from home. This was end to end football an absolute thriller to watch.
