Söder V Norrtälje
Söder got to the ‘J’ early and went through a solid warm up session in preparation for the big game.
There was plenty entertainment early on, Norrtälje were alert in assuring Söder they were there to play, with plenty of body work and close checking match ups around the ground. Söder was on the back foot early with coach Bull picked up by a limo outside the gate of the ‘J’ and whisked off for a critical conference, and if things couldn’t of got worse as living legend of the game ‘Larry’ was sub out early in the match with what seemed a serious injury concern to the Söder medical staff.
The match rolled on and Söder dug deep into their reserves. With Iron guts all tied up on the BBQ duty, with full control of social and entertainment off field rolls. It was time for Söder to take the red vest off the famed ‘Bluey Svensson’.
Bluey as renowned for made an immediate impact upon his teammates, showing leadership he lifted the talk around the field. He was at the bottom of every pack, firing out bullet like handballs to the running players of söder who repelled all attacks into the forward 50-metre area by the Dockers. The characteristic fitness of Bluey was evident, as he was around the ground third man up in the ruck placing the ball in the laps of Söder players who in turn shared the ball around and started to run the legs off the Docker boys. Bluey was everywhere providing bumps, blocks, and shepherds as the boys, repelled, cleared, attacked and scored at the Söder end.
After an inspirational half time address from bluey the Söder boys were so well united, not much looked like stoping them. Larry looked on from the box with a smile, as Bluey led the way and continued on like a diesel engine. Providing clean clearances, rocket passes, timely set ups and hard tackles, which was the ingredient to shake off any resurgence from the Dockers. The Söder boys confidently tracked with endure pressure, which provided high possession football, multiple goal scorers and many other fine contributions to the team win. Norrtälje kept fighting on to the end, but with the magic of Bluey it was to be Söders night.
