Dennis have been much improved of late and today couldn’t have showcased it any more. In this match their heads could easily have dropped after being 2 goals behind on two separate occasions. But they have a never-say-die attitude that makes them able to go toe-to-toe with anyone. Octagon have been the class of the league so far; each week being able to field a strong side. Today they rotated some of their squad but had strong players to come in. All 3 points should have been theirs but for a last minute goal from the never-say-never Dennis FC.
What an excellent match to watch, a high quality game which was end-to-end for the full 40 minutes. Octagon started the stronger of the two teams and were rewarded with an early goal.
After a slow first few minutes Pujara began to kick into gear, creating a flurry of chances which included two efforts that hit the post. Octagon managed the game well after and made it to the half with their one nil lead intact.
However after a few more chances were created by Pujara the continued pressure led to the equaliser. 1-1 not long after became 2-1 to Octagon who had 6-7 minutes to hold out.
One of the best games we’ve seen in the lunchtime leagues, with 2 really good teams cancelling each other out. Hopefully we see more games of this quality across the season.’
