Intercollegiate Soccer Final: Ormond College vs Trinity College

And so the scene was set for the grand final on friday night 9.20 pm. After our magnificent win in the semifinals, hopes were up and expectations were high. Turnout was great as well, many more then the number who originally turned up for the semifinals.

I couldn't believe that the Trinity team turned up in LIVERPOOL'S JERSEYS! Travesty! Tarnishing Liverpool's name! No way!

Anyhow, the masses of Ormond supporters were brought harshly back to earth as soon as the game started. We were outthought, outfought, outfoxed, outwitted, outplayed, and even outsized as soon as the game began. Soon after the match began, we conceded a goal, and it was all downhill from there. With their star striker D-Rock (a goal and an assist) and their magnificent Carragher-like defender Wang (who even scored a goal), they calmly took control of the game. Sporadic incidents involving our captain Dicko and some Trinity players were the highlight of Ormond's game, one of which resulted in a yellow card for Trinity's defender Ali.

It wasn't until the 2nd half that Trinity scored their next 2 goals, and soon after that, from another incident with Dicko, their defender Ali got sent off, and it was Trinity who was outnumbered. However, even though we had a man advantage, we somehow conspired to spurn 3 chances in a row immediately after that, and sad to say, the Intercollegiate Soccer Final rapidly turned out to be what is to be known as The Friday Night Massacre.
