The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre17th February 2011
Well, after a few weeks of less spectacular wins, draws and losses for the Interstate Team, the boys were back on pitch this monday with renewed energy. Up against the FC Cartils for the second and final time this season, having drawn with them on their previous meeting, spirits were tense but hopeful for a win.
To be honest, I had already decided I was going to entitle this blog, the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre and it looked as though it might be in favour of our boys with the first goal of the game going straight to the back of the opponent’s net. The Cartils saw red, hammering one in return almost immediately. But the InterBoys got one straight back and managed to keep it that way til half time.
After the swap, the mood changed on pitch and the goal difference rose as quickly as the temper. After another 6 goals went past our bewildered keeper, it was all over. Bruised and dejected, the boys left the pitch all wishing they’d gone home and spent time with their wives and girlfriends for Valentine’s Day instead of dancing the vicious tango with this angry little team. Let’s hope the rest of the WAGs are as understanding as me.
On the upside, with the final score at 7-4 to the Cartils, the team is back on its spiritual path for the quest of number 11. Go on Mother Nature…
