The Baltic slumped down the table after a battling 2-0 defeat late last night to the consultants Allegis. After a pretty cagey start the Baltic handed the lead to Allegis after a couple of errors at the back leading to a simple tap on from the opposition. Undeterred the Baltic Exchange kicked on and started to play their football creating a few half chances and hitting the post from a long range Andrea Bologna (Howe Robinson) effort.
In the second half the Baltic boys were hit by a series of injuries which meant Baltic veteran and last year’s player of the season Colin Jenkins (Sevenseas) had to play on for the whole second half with only one leg after all subs had been made. The Baltic continued to press regardless which often left gaps in the back but thankfully Baltic keeper Ben Regan (Nomikos) was in fine form making many difficult shots look ordinary with his assured keeping.
As the Baltic pushed on looking the most likely to score the BEFC where hit with a sucker punch. The normally reliable Thomas Buckley (GFI) had a moment of madness hacking the Allegis striker down in the box for a pen which sealed the game….some would say it was tricky play by the striker others would question if it had something to do with Buckley seeing red after being cynically being fouled moments before without the referee spotting, you’d have to ask the man himself.
Man of the match goes to Ben Regan (Nomikos), fine display in goal and didn’t deserve to be on the losing team.
