Anyway, momentum of the 5-0 win lead the 3s into this important home game vs HSBC.
HSBC had stuffed the 3's at their place earlier in the season, so revenge was required if promotion was the target for the remainder of the season.
The Norsemen pitches seemed to be holding up pretty well considering the deluge that they had endured. Once again the San Man and the Brent Meister had prepared a good footballing surface considering the weather.
But that surface wouldn't hold up much after 22 lumps had run about on it for 90 mins.
As i write this report I cant for the life of me remember what the half time score was, but i'll go with 2-0 at half time.
Norsemen had played the better football by the half time interval and deserved the lead but the HSBC aerial threat was evident from every set piece.
As I wrote that I just remembered they scored a header in the first half so it must have been either 2-1 or 3-1 at half time.
Anyway Norse were winning going into the second half.
The pitch was pretty badly cut up at this point and it was getting harder to play any passing football which really played into HSBC hands as they launched the aerial attacks.
The second half was a close fought affair with defending and running become a real chore on such a heavy pitch.
Throw a nice low sun in your eyes and you can imagine the kind of second half that ensued.
But the 3's maintained a lead throughout the match due to some lethal finishing from Danny Angel Green Machine and some sublime midfield display from Paul Snake Amico.
Final Score Was 5-4
The 3's Momentum Train Continues....
Promotion is still on and the count down to tour has begun....
