ECS FC Match of the Week: Blue vs FC Spare Tire
Sunday 10:45am Twin Ponds Park
ECS FC Blue looks to pick up their second win of the nascent Fall GSSL season this Sunday as they take on FC Spare Tire.
Blue enters this game having won their season opener last Sunday over Hello World FC. George opened the scoring with a lovely goal from a direct free-kick, and in the closing stages of the match Basim tacked on the insurance goal to ensure a 2-0 victory. Tim also earned his first clean sheet in GSSL Division 3.
FC Spare Tire (fcsparetire.com) won their opener in convincing fashion, 6-0 over Sea-Town United. Last year's match against Spare Tire was a memorable one. George suffered a broken nose, Blue was on the end of an unfortunate refereeing decision to allow a penalty to be taken before the goalkeeper was set, and the match ended 3-2 in favor of Spare Tire. Of course, neither team shies away from internet banter, so the talk didn't end when the two teams walked off the field. Needless to say, this has been a rematch that Blue has been awaiting for some time, as this loss was one of only two that they recorded in the Summer GSSL season.
We hope to have you out to support ECS FC this weekend!
