The game commenced with a high intensity from Glasgow, applying lots of unwanted pressure on Stirling who were being dominated early on.
The first goal came from Balmer of course. Balmer's prowess allowed him to runs rings around a few stirling boys who haven't been taught the tackle yet. Then he plays it through two guys to Gus at the side who plays the ball across the keeper. A classic sweaty goal which balmer puts away easily.
The second goal also comes from Balmer. Classic. The ball comes from far away into the D which Pullar tactically left allowing the ball to roll over to Balmer who flicked it to the side of the keeper who stood no chance.
Rob mascarpone or tagliatelle (a suitable nickname has to be agreed soon) cuts about up front in the CF role not realising that he's meant to track back but puts some good balls into the d and shows off some pretty tidy dribbling for a goalkeeper to make up for this.
Next there is a goal from Stirling making it 2-1. A Stirling boy makes a shite pass which deflects of a Glasgow stick and goes to a Stirling player i've been told hasn't ever played hockey before who finishes it.
Our third goal came from Gus. The ball comes to gus from a rebound and he manages to flick the ball around the goalie and puts it away over the backboard. Spectacular finish.
Stirling use some kind of sorcery to whip in an undeserved second goal. The ball comes to sammy and he kicks it but the ball goes through his pads (we better get the checked out) then stirling player scores into an open goal. Very unfortunate for Sammy who had a good game.
3-2 at half time. A real wake up call as we realise that we have let in some shite scrappy goals from not marking up and tracking back enough. Which easily happens when you play against a side who aren't a high standard. However, in the second half we step it up and put a great shift in.
At the start of the second half moody decides to move high up the pitch further than any defender has before but manages to track back and puts in some vital tackles alongside Rendal who is bit of a beast, that goes without saying. Making some fabulous link up play and some solid tackles.
Balmer gets the ball again seeking for his hatrick, he roasts the ball at the keeper but a stirling boy blocks it with his stick which he uncontrollably throws in the air. This is a formality for any of Balmers shots. A short corner is awarded, which we won a bunch of throughout the game of which we didn't manage to put away. Also, shots from Balmer, Gus and others didn't manage to meet the back of the net.
The Stirling ultras made distant high pitch cries trying to put off the strong Glasgow side, the cackling fans were slagging Pullar saying he belonged on the bench but this was only because of a bump on the Stirling pitch which caused the ball to bobble over Pullars stick, however this didn't effect his game one bit.
Babs puts in a spectacular ball across the d but as per there is nobody in sight of the backpostal area. Also, Finn decides to do what he does best running down the line and creates some good chances which frustratingly come to nothing.
Maitland has a cracker of a game so the opposition decide to target him as he posed too much of a threat on goal. The stirling boy hooks maitlands feet and he goes flying, a horrendous tackle. maitland appleals to the ref who goes "I didn't see it" which infuriates maitland, but he keeps his cool and causes havoc.
Dave goes on a rampage recking folk and balmer decides to take matters into his own hands by dribbling through the stirling boys front sticks who don't know how to stop him. It must be his white chinos and fashionable jacket which intimidated the opposition. Giving balmer a hattrick. Classic.
Our fourth goal came from balmer who heard a distant call of execute order 66 which he carried out to seal his long sought after hatrick. It was a shot from gus which the keeper rebounded to balmer who tucked it away to make it 4-2. The crowd goes wild as Balmer celebrates to the many Glasgow fans.
Sammy decides to make sure he gets the ball this time by putting his two feet into the poor stirling boys face subsequently missing the ball. fortunately the ref wasn't watching as per so decides to give a short, the most rash call i've ever witnessed. definitely should have been a pen and maybe a sending off. despite this sammy claims to have made a lovley tackle. The stirling boy goes for a hit and it thankfully skims past the far post
Orf makes about 10 vital tackles throughout the game where he tackles the man then collapses and takes the man out who flys over his head having no clue how he got there. Classic orf putting his body on the line
Stuart makes a fabulous debut for the 3s, saying he cuts about causing mayhem would be the biggest understatement of the year.
New TB is apart of lots of link up play and uses some never seen before what seemed to be 4D skills to beat his men. Classic team boy.
