Yann Schories fires us into a surprise lead against Blue Order at Penny Arcade

Ten-man Brook Street crashed to a 5-1 defeat away to Blue Order this afternoon. Trailing 3-1 at half time, the visitors’ cause was not helped when in the sixty-fourth minute Andy Harte received his marching orders for kicking the ball away for the second time in the game.

“You can’t legislate for sheer stupidity”, fumed Marcus afterwards. He was stupid enough to pick up a booking in the first half for kicking the ball away, so to do exactly the same thing later in the match was asking for trouble”.

Marcus continued, “Andy Harte is no use to me sitting in the stands, and neither is he if he cannot be trusted not to do something idiotic like this. He sold the shirt today and that is unacceptable. Every match for us now is a cup final and we need everyone to be 100% committed to the cause”.

Ironically, it was Brook Street who opened the scoring in the eighth minute through Yann Schories, but the lead lasted only seven minutes before Ryan Emslay levelled.

Lance Ridel fired the home side into the lead in the nineteenth minute and Matthew Scotney increased the lead just after the half hour mark.

After Brook Street were reduced to ten men in the sixty-fourth minute, it took the home side just two minutes to press home their advantage, Scottnay firing in his second of the game.

Only a fine save from Ezequiel Alexandrino prevented Wyatt Egerton from increasing the lead further in the seventy-fifth, but the reprieve was only to last sixty seconds before Ryan Emslay hit his second of the match.

Elsewhere, despite winning 1-0 at home to Much Rucking, Hannoverscher Sportverein’s relegation was confirmed, while there were 2-1 home wins for both sooside athletico and Vines Cross.
