In a game that saw us dominate long periods during the first half and an ever resolute and stout St Marys on corners and throwing, and saw us not be able to break the mark. As always when you concede silly fouls and free kicks with the likes of Sean for St Marys and his ability to put the ball into the danger areas. We conceded a corner and a great delivery to the back post where a free headed downwards through Sam Abbiss’s legs and all our pressure undone. We tried to get the back into the game but goalkeeper Luke kept the score the same. We gave away a silly free kick and again step up Sean to put it in the danger area and another free header and 2-0 before half time. We were up the hill second half and preparing the subs for a tactical change we played some good football through the midfield for Leon who’s tireless running got him his first of many for the season. After we scored we started to make changes to push the game but fair play to St Marys kept counter attacking but Coley and Greg made it hard work for St Marys. We made 4 subs and it really made a difference and Jordan with some nice footwork drew a foul on the edge of the area and up step the man Leon to place a beautiful free kick into the far post 2-2. The game was open after that and although St Marys had a couple of chances Zion had the best and in all fairness squandered the best that could have won the game. Great game today both footballing teams played well and worked hard in a competitive and fair game.
