Lancaster provided a masterclass in the men’s indoor football, not only scoring eleven goals but also coming back from a 4-1 score-line.
However, judging by the first five minutes, it looked as if York were going to steam roll Lancaster. With three goals in as many minutes, York were dominant in the first ten minutes.
With the score at 4-1, Lancaster managed to get a grip of the game with some hard tackling and nice passing. After number 27 got the ball rolling for Lancaster’s comeback, both number 29 and number 24 hit the net to level the scores – a lovely dink and a excellent strike into the top corner respectively.
Lancaster then took the lead when number fourteen went on a mazy run and finished into the bottom right corner.
York managed to hold back the floodgates for a moment when number eight struck a wonderful half volley beneath the Lancaster goal keeper. However, in the second half, the floodgates broke again, as Lancaster scored four goals without reply, including number fourteen’s second and best goal of the game when, after nice link up play, number 21 crossed the ball for an easy tap in.
As the match drew to a close, the game turned into a bad tempered affair as Lancaster’s rather unconventional tackling frustrated York.
Though York did pull one back late on, it was not enough as Lancaster went on to add another two goals to seal a spectacular 11-6 victory and a wonderful two points for the red rose.
