Match Report - 26 Mar 2011, Leeds Modernians Football Club 3rds lost to Leeds Independent
Playing a bit of catch up on the report front, so this will be brief. A game we needed to win, should have drawn (at least) but ended up losing. I'm not sure why we keep coming up a little bit short against the teams in the top half of the league, none of whom we have beat, despite always being in the game. After weathering an early storm we settled into this game very impressively against the best side we have played all season.
An excellent Joe Fraser goal has us in front at the interval, and we started the second half looking like a team who could go on and control the game. Then one mistake, by an otherwise excellent Flash, and they were level. Despite us hitting the bar twice, they got the crucial goal with 5 minutes go, a clear hand ball missed by the otherwise superb (a recurring theme) referee, and we were sunk, despite playing one of our best performances of the sseason. Plus Ca Change.
