Indalphone Vs Huercal United
Matchday two in the Huercal-Overa Liga Futbol 6 Tournament Sponsored by Voss Homes saw United take on one of the contenders in a very competitive competition featuring Finidi who only last season was pushing for promotion to the Segunda B division with Huercal-Overa Club de Futbol.
The squad welcomed back Terry Sharpe after an extended pre season break, Andy Smith following ongoing talks about getting involved in the project and also introducing Ross (Keeper) Hunter to the squad.
The game started well with United containing Indalphone to long range efforts that were dealt with easily by the new keeper, movement and positioning was an improvement on the first run out as structure was clear to see.
Millwall Mickey was his usual self constant running and niggling at the heels of the Indalphone defenders created openings early on but nothing to really make the keeper sweat, Lee Danson and Terry Sharpe were both looking to get shots away on goal with Dan Saxon holding the line with Veteran Rickard Graham at the back looking solid.
But it was only a matter of time that the deadlock was broken, Indalphone taking the lead after 6 minutes with a rocket of an effort.
Huercal United’s heads didn’t drop, this gave them a sense to get back into the game. Andy Smith, Dave Greenwood and Ian Brocklehurst coming off the bench to provide a boost of freshness.
Half Time Indalphone 6 Huercal United 0
A great half time team talk in which all involved wanted to get back out there and win the 2nd half…
History was made in the second period when United scored the first goal in the right end of the pitch! Millwall Mickey goes down in history as the first Huercal United FC goal scorer, a fantastic achievement and long to be remembered…
The goal came after Saxon played the ball though the middle opening up the wide area for Lee Danson to create space and with a swivel fire a shot on the goal only to be denied by the keeper who could only parry the ball which fell to the feet of Mickey who rifled the ball into the onion bag….
GOOOOAAALLL, GOOOOAAALLL, GOOOOAAALLL…..
Sadly this was the only goal of the game for the tired United players as the game ended 11-1, an improvement on the opening game of the campaign with signs of the team gelling well and looking forward to the next outing. Which will be at Las Pistas in Huercal-Overa on Thursday 28th April at 20:00 against the Belzunces Team.
