Sam Ferretto fires in the second of his two goals. However, by then the game was already lost.

The reserves suffered their second heavy defeat in a row this morning, crashing to a 7-2 drubbing from German Liga V side Datteln Lions.

Ironically, it was the home side who had opened the scoring through Sam Ferretto with just under half an hour played, however by half time they were already 3-1 down.

Lions increased their lead from the penalty spot in the fifty-sixth minute and although Sam fired his and Brook Street’s second straight from the kick-off, Lions countered with a further three goals in the subsequent quarter of an hour to wrap up a comprehensive win.

“We just weren’t able to compete against a very well organised side”, admitted Leoš Loos at full-time. “We have no complaints”, he added. “It’s a miserable day, and our performance matched it”.

He continued, “We had some inexperienced players in today so it would be totally unfair to criticise them, however both they, and I, need the senior players alongside them to step up a gear and that simply didn’t happen in some cases. That has to change”.
