VPG Championship South - TRFC eSports 2-0 Elite Pro Clubs

Match Highlights

The PS4 team started the week with a poor 3-0 loss against Farmers esports with nobody playing anywhere near their best FIFA. This was especially disappointing given that Farmers esports had occupied top spot before the start of the game with the PS4 side pushing the top three places.

On Tuesday, the PS4 team faced off against Alliance Project, looking to right the wrongs from the previous night. With the score locked at 0-0 in the 89th minute, Alliance Project broke clear and were denied by a fine save from goalkeeper AutoKorrect. From that save, the PS4 team counter attacked and striker Ronan Downie (Ro) was brought down inside the box. Ro converted the resulting penalty to give the PS4 side a last gasp three points.

Thursday saw a double bill of league and cup action. In the cup, two goals from Ro were enough to knock Xtreme esports out with the winner coming eleven minutes from time after Xtreme had levelled from the penalty spot.

The league game saw the PS4 side ease to a fine victory against Elite Pro Clubs with Curtis Aaron and Ro finding the net.  A big mention has to go to goalkeeper AutoKorrect, who made an excellent save at 1-0 to keep the PS4 side ahead.

The result against Elite Pro clubs means that the PS4 side approach the half way stage of the season occupying top spot in the VPG Championship South and are well on their way to achieving their goal of Promotion to the Premier League

Default

This week saw the Xbox team pick up 10 points out of a possible 12, helped out by two default wins due to teams not turning up against them.  

Tuesday night saw a default win over Demoralized esports before a fine game against 4th place Camisado esports. Camisado took the lead early on, Anderson sneaking in at the near post to head past Goldie in the Rovers net. The Xbox team didn’t let their heads drop and levelled on 15 minutes when Hendrick smashed home a rebound from a shot from Xbox striker Harvey. 

They took the lead on the hour, capitalising on a mistake from a Camisado defender to break clear. Olly saw his shot saved by the Camisado keeper but assistant manager Stephen Belt hammered the rebound into the roof of the net.

The Xbox team defended well in the second half but had goalkeeper Goldie to thank after he tipped a Camisado shot onto his left-hand post and away to safety in the 70th minute, however, that was a close as Camisado came and the Xbox team took all three points.

On Thursday, The Xbox team played out a superb end to end game against B Storm G esports (the highlights are worth a watch), eventually taking the lead through Harvey in the 55th minute.  They held on until the 80th minute but we’re undone by a superb striker by one of the B Storm players who volleyed home from just outside the box. 

The second game of the night was a default win.
