The West Midland Christian League kicked it’s season back off today with this sodden affair. This game played at Rectory Park opposite Good hope hospital in Sutton Coldfield was played in torrential conditions and left everybody soaked to the skin.
We were treated to a crazy 5 minutes as these sides went all out . Corinthians in the green charged into the box on 52 minutes, shooting a low angled shot that deflected off the sliding defender, deceiving the keeper and settling in the bottom corner. There was an immediate response from Lions with a bobbler into the far corner. On 55 minutes, SK went ahead from a corner the ball was stabbed back in and was poked in from 5 yards.
SK furthered their lead on 65 mins , charging into the box before laying the ball off for a teammate to tap in . There was further farce at the back for SK when the Lions had a hopeful punt from 30 yards that flew through the keepers gloves into the net . Everyone was grateful when the whistle was blown as the rain came down harder and harder.
