Bromley by Bow FC take on Abohani FC..
Bromley By Bow FC kicked of the ILFL 11/12 Season with a sluggish start to the first half with no quarter given in the first 15 minutes for both teams, it wasn’t long until Bahar Ali trundled forward and beat his marker but only to flash the chance wide of the post. The momentum was now slowly building and Bromley were sought to establish more control of the game by keeping possession and making Abohani FC work hard to win the ball back. Abohani lacked any attacking strength and were unable to retain any quality possession, they fell deeper and deeper towards their own goal. The first half ended 0-0.
The second half showed some intense pace from the beginning and was long until Bahar tapped in the first goal from a low driven cross by Fabio who beat Abohani’s left back with his trickery. The referee had a poor game and had lost his bearings as he was unable to make the right decision whether the ball was on or off the pitch several times but it was true to say that the controversy from Maywether’s fight must of rubbed onto him from the night before. Bromley started to play with expression and confidence, switching the play at will and making Abohani work very hard to get the ball back. It wasn’t long before the second goal was slotted in by Hamid from the edge of the box which rolled in to the bottom corner. The third followed in similar suit as it had an air of inevitability about it as Hamid, was having a superb game coolly finished to get his second while the keeper got a whiff of the freshly cut grass. Bromley’s pressure and possession meant that Abohani rarely troubled the keeper, while Bromley struck the woodwork a few times. Final score 3-0 to Bromley By Bow FC.
Ex-UCMMA Cage fighter & Park Ranger, Akbor Islam commented “We should of won the game in the first half, players were half asleep and they shouldn’t bring that attitude to the game. As Mick from Rocky would of said… stay in school and use your brain. Be a doctor, be a lawyer, carry a leather briefcase. Forget about sports as a profession….be a thinker, not a stinker !. “
