"A very competitive game played in the right manner.
Good luck for rest of season"
" The Bathelona game played on Sunday versus Retainers was a very well fought and thoroughly entertaining affair. It was played in very good spirits by both teams which is unlike so many previous matches between these two sides.
Bathelona started this particular game well maintaining a good structure and moving the ball well. They created a number of opportunities and on about the 15 minute mark went one nil up with a beautiful 25 yard strike by Tai.
Retainers stuck to their task and started to play their football in the latter stages of the first half and created a couple of chances late on But Bathelona maintained their lead and went I at halftime 1-0 up.
In the second-half the Bathelona team adjusted its personnel slightly to allow for a number of new players to make their debuts. The second half started well but unfortunately the pace could not be maintained by Bathelona and with legs looking a little weary and the team being forced to defend too deeply Retainers had approximately 10 minutes of very good football and picked off Bathelona scoring three for no return - one was all most certainly offside but the referee payed no attention to the linesmans flag and that put Retainers into a 3-1 lead. Bathelona continued to probe and created chances which they did not unfortunately take.
The score ended 3-1 to Retainers. It was a very strong determined performance by Bathelona but it wasn't meant to be. "
