BURRIDGE BRING BACK CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
Saturday 21st January 2006
After another night of excess, Burridge could have done with an extra feature to their strip - a pair of Raybans. As Rich Allan entered the centre circle to carry out his duties as captain (this involves guessing if the referee's toss will produce the queen's head or tail; well they're inbred aren't they), Capital players seemed to be in competition with each other to see who could deliver the most generic pre-match battle cry.
Extra points going to those who sound like they really mean it, like one of the Baldwin brothers in the highly entertaining romp, "Ten Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead," who when realising he's on the killer's hitlist whoofs down a load of amphetamines and remains in his room even in the event of a call of nature with a twitchy finger on a loaded AK-47. When someone calls round he whacks on a set of hastily set up headlights and delivers the line: "FREEZE MOTHERF*CKER; I AM GODZILLA, YOU ARE JAPAN." Anyway, you get the picture.
It was infact Burridge's first attack that produced a goal. Bryn Schwodler ran where? Away from his demons? No. In search of dignity? Wrong again, but through on goal and his shot may have hit the post but Paul Andrews had got himself an easy tap in by following in. He doubled his tally soon after. Again Schwodler ran through and when his shot wasn't dealt with Andrews was on hand to make it 2-0. Before the half was out he controlled casually before delivering a measured drive that narrowly missed the upright - what a weekend this boy was having.
In the second half Burridge continued to make chances, most notably when Paul Andrews was unlucky to see a low stinging drive from distance hit the inside of the post and roll accross the line. But when Capital failed to deal with a through ball, Bryn Schwodler calmly whacked home his first on his return. Although Capital got one back, they didn't provide the necessary threat to Hewitt's goal, giving Burridge victory.
4-4-2: Kristian Hewitt, Luke Sanderson, Ben Wilson, Paul Dyke, Jay Schwodler, Ross Bryant, Rich Allan, Mark Sanderson, Greg Baker, Paul Andrews, Bryn Schwodler
