Seoul City Warriors defeated Footplr FC tonight in a match that saw brilliant defensive organisation and a plethora of superbly taken goals.
Taking to the field in the impressive surroundings of Hyochang Park Stadium, Warriors quickly went into a 1–0 lead when defender Jean Leroy made a rare foray forward and smashed home a loose ball with his left foot, past despairing dive of the opposing keeper. Despite a strong start, Warriors briefly switched off and let Footplr back into the game when a hopeful ball forward was not dealt with properly and left the striker with an easy tap in to tie things up.
From there on out however, Warriors dominated the remaining 75 minutes. Goals from Kevin Conlan, Matt Fennell, Manu Papu and a brilliant hat trick from Younes El Rafji followed. Younes and Matt in particular scored excellent goals, both managing to chip the keeper from outside the 18 yard box.
An excellent win to follow up a successful first league win last week. May is a busy month, with many fixtures to come, including the second league game of the season, so this was truly the perfect way to begin.
