When I was 17 years old I got dumped by my GF. It was a painful experience. She was great, long legs, great personality and a few other positive attributes that I can’t mention in this match report. The feeling was similar when Hammond left for the Hibs. No more cheese board photos, no more bicycle kick winners, no more HK trips together, and no more supplies of jelly beans pre match. Would we ever recover from such a big loss? The only way we can truly recover is by meeting up again, but this will need to wait for another time as him and his BFF Rosco didn’t want to play against each other, so both stayed in bed.
The game started off generally well for SCC. Controlling most of the possession and creating some goal scoring opportunities, but with Hibs looking dangerous on the break. The first goal from Hibs came in on the break with a ball over the top found Dan, who was met by an onrushing Ronnie in goals who missed the ball and cleaned him out. A foul that looked outside the box but was given as a penalty, and a yellow shown to Ronnie. Dan stepped up to fire home to make it 1-0 to the Hibs. SCC were soon level after a great finish into the bottom corner by Liam. 1-1 at half time and a very competitive game.
SCC started the second half in much better fashion and scored 3 goals in quick succession to effectively kill the game off. Young Sawyer scored the 2nd after a Hutcheon header found his feet to coolly slot home. Hutcheon made it 3-1 after some great work from Inaki down the right and Bowden curled in a freekick to make it 4-1. Tim completed the scoring with a powerful drive into the roof of the net to make the final score 5-1.
Mom for SCC goes to Adam Bowden – 25kg lighter and a new player for SCC.
Mom for the Hibs goes to Andrew Knott – Worked hard throughout and was always keen to get on the ball.
