Lightmoon FC’s narrow 1-0 win sends Faith Bible FC out of the Truelinks grassroot competition.

Despite an insipid away defeat to Sanctuary Strikers FC on the opening match day, Faith Bible FC still did not heed the warning. Rather, they upheld the status-quo, maintained their humdrum approach to games and failed to rectify the lingering issues associated with their team.

Perhaps, Coach Victor of Faith Bible FC is the perpetuator of the downfall of his team after he failed to criticise his players awful performance against Sanctuary Strikers FC in the first game and having shattered hopes in a sluggish Navy Blue team — that would really not matter to anyone. They did not heed the warning and as such, were punished for their defiant behaviour as Lightmoon FC rode their luck to get a narrow 1-0 win over Faith Bible FC in the Truelinks grassroot competition at Cheshire stadium.
” I won’t say my boys were bad. I’ll just say the better legs always win.” said Coach Victor who found no fault in his teams performance after a 4-0 loss to Sanctuary Strikers FC.

As the events in the game unfolded, Lightmoon FC were the forerunners. Though wining and dining with flaws throughout the game, they provided security at the back line when need be. But lacking the force and sufficient expertise in attack summed up to why their game was a little less than expectations. The striker Adeosun Bolaji of Lightmoon FC supposed to be a danger man but he showed no danger atall. His prowess at the front of goal was weak thereby squandering series of gilt-edged chances that could have put the game to bed. To cap it all, at the time when Adeosun Gbolahan released the striker on a one-on-one attack, the forward’s lack of confidence betrayed him. With one goal in the competition, Adeosun Bolaji shot straight at Faith Bible FC’s goalkeeper Udoeze Isaac.

Coach Olamilekan of Lightmoon FC has this to say on his striker’s floppy display in the game:
” I need to work on my striker because his goal ability is very poor, I need to work on him.”
Nevertheless, Lightmoon FC exhibited passion and dire need for a win in the game. Thus with 5 minutes into the game, Adeosun Gbolahan surging forward for Lightmoon FC won a throw-in. Olorunfemi Christian of Faith Bible FC handling the resultant throw-in with his arm gifted away a freekick in a decent position. Eye contact was enough for Yusuf Muiz, the freekick expert to direct the ball to the precise angle at the far corner of the goal post. Smashing home a wonderful strike past Udoeze Isaac to seal the deal for Lightmoon FC with plenty of time left to play.

Unless Faith Bible FC could perform a late drama the contest looked to be over. Not only did sloppiness ravage the team but also, their display in the game lacked brilliance. In need of spark, Coach Victor introduced fresh legs only to prove abortive as the situation remained unchanged.
In the end, anger and furiousness were the colour of Coach Victor’s face. Suffering 2 losses in a row meant that his team were out of the competition. Indeed a painful setback for Coach Victor and Faith Bible FC. Without attending the post match conference, the coach departed.
