Missed chances: 2003 Match report – Sat 1st Nov

Despite a game full of good individual performances the 2003 team continued their recent record of doing much better on their travels, with a home defeat this morning to a Musselburgh YS team who took their chances. Early on, MYS scored twice to establish a lead and then endured a strong Gullane fightback without scoring again until near the end. Gullane created a large number of chances, with only a top notch performance from the MYS keeper keeping them ahead. The fightback featured strong defensive performances from Calumn, Jasmine, Archie and Dylan whilst Miles, Stuart and Shay tried their luck at the other end. Shay pulled one back for us after a nice pass through from Stuart, and then nearly evened things up with a beautifully lofted high shot which came back off the bar. Daniel came on and kept up his energetic chasing game, whilst Itske featured on the right wing – almost taking her chance to score but narrowly missing. Ultimately we paid the price for not scoring when we had the chance, and string of late goals from MYS gave them a unbeatable lead. However, the team can take heart from some good moments and look to improve when get back on the road to Haddington next weekend.
