Captain Fernando was not available for this important match, a match that Monte had to get at least a point in to stop the rot of five consecutive losses. Vaz was Captain for the day
Monte started off well attacking and in 3 minutes a great pass from the left to Vaz with an open goal, but was ruled offside. After 16 minutes it's all Monte, but not going our way with shots hitting the uprights, cross bar, and over the top. There was corner after corner, however after 18 minutes following a great run down the left and Vaz scores. Could have been more but then within 1 minute Hondon equalise 11. On 26 minutes there was a foul for Monte just outside the box. A yellow card was issued, but we put it straight over the top. On 29 minutes Liam with just the goalie to beat, but misses. On 33 minutes, Monte had a free kick just outside the box and we send it straight into hands of the Hondon keeper. On 38 minutes, Alex with no one to beat hits it straight into keeper’s hands.
One minute later Hondon’s no 22 scores,21.
Half time 21 scrappy first half overall with probably Monte slightly better team but too many misses.
Second half, 21 down on a small pitch not only narrow but goal keeper can kick ball straight at other goal keeper. How does Monte turn it around? Don't know but understand we are playing better than on Thursday. 1 minute free kick to Hondon with Manager Carlos going mad shouting at his team. On 51 minutes Vaz can't keep the ball under control but we get a corner, but nothing comes of this.
On 57 minutes, Alex hits over the bar. Dimitry and Dario off, and Omar and Maccan on. On 68 minutes penalty for Monte after Liam was brought down but Vaz puts it straight over the top. However, no problem as Vaz makes up for the miss with his second goal, 22. On 70 minutes Vaz was away and being held back by their defence on his own, and ref ’ gives free kick the other way! However, should have been a red card. Once again ref ’ not in our court for this game. German on, Diego off.
Monte were still pressing but getting nowhere and then into extra time something going on, on the other side of pitch and manager Carlos Perez gets a red and sent off. Game over 22 on 93 minutes.
Hopefully, Monte have turned a corner, and start playing the game that we know are capable of. Monte are at home next weekend against CD Dolores.
