Jun 22, 2016 Sports Comments Off on Dover elated with SEL FINALE triumph
Long time Head Coach of Alpha United, Wayne ‘Wiggy’ Dover has expressed delight at his teams
Stag Elite League FINALE triumph over rivals Slingerz FC via penalty kicks on Monday morning last at the Leonora Track and Field Football Facility.
The match went down to the wire as neither team was able to score in the 90 minutes of regulation time as well as the 30 minutes of extra time and 4 minutes of added on time, two minutes each half.
“I’m elated; the fact that we won the game but I would say it wasn’t an easy game because we see the game went down to the wire. Slingerz had their moments we had our moments, the game played out to a draw and it was decided by penalties but nevertheless, we are very happy and elated about the victory.”
Dover pointed out that the lack of discipline and organization from his players in spite of the plans that they put together during practice caused many of the problems that they faced on the pitch.
“It was Fortunate for us that during the period of Slingerz dominance they did not capitalize in those moments. The game has moments, one time it went with them another time it was with us but unfortunately for the longer period they had the momentum but did not capitalize on it and that worked in our favour.”
The Technical staff Dover stated would look at the fact that the players did not stick to the game plan and lacked discipline and will work on those areas for the next match-up.
Dover also shared his thoughts on what this duel means for local football: “I think generally it has done a great deal for football in the sense that we’ve seen two heavyweights squared off and it was a toe to toe battle. We’ve seen one team dominate for long periods and the crowd I think was satisfied to see a result that wasn’t lopsided and it augurs well that if others pool their resources and invest we can get balanced games throughout the league.” (Franklin Wilson)
