Garabed Palasyan fires home from a tight angle to open the scoring.

In what could have been a real ‘banana-skin’ fixture for Brook Street, three unanswered first half goals proved to be enough to see off the challenge of Maxum in this afternoon’s league match. Garabed Palasyan struck twice either side of a Sam Ferretto header to secure another valuable three points.

The home side’s cause was not helped by the dismissal of full-back Daniel Mallock in the sixty-third minute for an off the ball incident, but with the game already won, Brook Street chose to keep things tight and not take any undue risks.

In fact, with Brook Street increasing their goals advantage over The Tiny Spacemen by another two, it could have been the perfect afternoon had Zsolt Baboss not picked up an injury that may well have ended his season.

“It was a truly shocking challenge”, fumed Leoš Loos afterwards, “and it only received a yellow card as punishment. How it wasn’t a red I’ll never know”.

On the result he said, “We showed real desire and energy and had the game wrapped up by half-time. We passed the ball really well and controlled large spells of the game, all of which is very pleasing. Above all however is the fact we’ve won another three points and that’s another game gone”.
