Final match report;
On the 1st March, Guru Nanak hosted Wood End to our last match of the season. Guru Nanak were in great form with 2 wins, 2 games lost and a draw under their belt. Unfortunately, Guru Nanak were without their coach Mr Whynn and their best player, Zain. The team line up was: Gurleen in goal, Sukhraj , Paramveer and Arjun in defence, Surkhab was playing on the wing -for the second game running, and Raul (back from his injury) and Balraj -the top scorer- were strikers.
Ten minutes into the match, Guru Nanak conceded with a lousy mistake from the outpaced defenders as Wood End made it 1-0.After many chances from Guru Nanak, Balraj came close from a wonderful counter attack. Following a team talk with the football coach Mr Singh, Guru Nanak came back stronger and pressed Wood End in the second half. After a long ball from Sukhraj to Paramveer and then to Raul, he passed to Balraj and Guru Nanak equalised! Within 35 seconds, from a wonderful corner from Raul, Surkhab got the final touch and Guru Nanak were 2-1 up. Five minutes later, Wood End responded with a great counter attack. In the last 30 seconds of the game, Balraj scored a wonder goal to give Guru Nanak their third win of the season! “What a match,” said Miss Luxon. Guru Nanak were celebrating as if they had won the cup.
