Sacre Coeur 3 v 4 Essemay
 
Not so much a bad day at the office, but a terrible 11 minutes on the pitch.
Yes, 11 minutes conceding 4 goals put the league semi-final Essemay's way and left Coeur with the preverbial mountain to climb.
 
It all started so well after just one minute on the clock when a long ball over the top found Cherry who squared to Ginger to slot home 1-0.
 
Cue thoughts from the line of an onslaught considering Coeur are fourth in the League with title aspirations in thier own hands against an Essemay team who are struggling in the League fourth from bottom.
 
Alas, it wasn't to be, one team has everything to play for and everything to lose, and one team had EVERYTHING to play for as a place in the final means alot to Essemay when the challenge for the League isn't there.
 
They scored their first on seven minutes when a long ball over the top eluded Coeur's defence and an attacker nipped in to lob the keeper. 1-1.
 
11 minutes later they were 4-1 up. Confused Embarrassed Ouch
 
No need to explain how....it doesn't matter.
 
Ht 4-1
 
Coeur rallied during the half time break and decided to give it a go second half and to be fair.............absolutely battered Essemay for the rest of the 45 minutes.
 
8 minutes in a Roachy's bobbled shot hit the post.
12 minutes in a mix up in the box saw the ball fall to John Carra to finish 4-2.
20 minutes gone in the second half and it was all one way traffic. Lee Owens cracked in a shot from 20 yards which hit the post and bounced out to an Essemay defender.
21 mins - good cross in was glanced away from John Carra's head.
29 mins - Header by Big Dunc fell back to him and his volley flashed just wide.
By now Coeur were running out of time and had to score two to force extra time, finding one was hard enough.
On 40 mins a good flick on by John Carra found Big Dunc on the edge of the box who shot was brilliantly charged down as it was goalbound.
A minute late an a Cherry shot found the keeper and not the back of the net.
On 42 minutes another headed chance went begging.
Deep into injury time and a Ginger header struck the bar and John Carra forced home the rebound. 4-3.
 
Cue scenes of desperation as Coeur pushed forward with 60 seconds to go to force what would have been an unbelievable equaliser - but alas it never came.
 
What started as a game that should have been comfortably won given the League form but you can never account for 'football'.
 
With 10 League games to go and the title in our hands we will quickly need to put this behind us and focus on each League game as it comes.
 
C'mon lads - let's go and win the 'bloody damn thing' Smile
