Saxons 2 - 1 1855

Fairly good weather for football had drawn a crowd of 1912 to The Burial Mound. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Harry Gallagher and Jules van der Star. Saxons had chosen a strategic 5-5-0 formation. Lineup: Ornelas - Bonnafous, Gontarek, á Nesi, Głaszczka, Næs - Reynheim, Carhuajulca, Haraldsen, Aristotelous, Budka -.

1855 started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. They fielded: Watson - Marquis, Johnson, Scarrow - Atwell, Currer, Chaner, Pye - Norrison, Piper, Wan.

1 minutes into the game, Saxons wanted to bring some new energy to their game. John Reynheim gave Eyðgrímur 'Moustache Man' Jensen a quick hug as he left the field. Saxons's Zbigniew Gontarek left the field after 19 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Jógvan við Høgadalsá. Saxons took the lead 23 minutes in, as Jógvan við Høgadalsá broke through on the left and put the 1 - 0 shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper. 1855 had to make a substitution after 27 minutes. Stuart Piper limped off the field and was replaced by Abdus-Salam Shafiq. 1855 had a chance to level the scores as Lee Atwell suddenly found himself free in the middle of the box with only the keeper to beat, but he misjudged the finish, and only managed to hit the bar. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. Saxons enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

The 1855 coach was desperate to reverse his team's fortunes in the game, and ordered his team to change strategy. After 48 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and Eyðgrímur 'Moustache Man' Jensen gave the Saxons supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 2 - 0. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Saxons coach let Anselm Bellet replace Henry 'Happy' Haraldsen after 55 minutes. 1855's Ian Currer refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 64 minutes. Lee Atwell had a couple of good opportunities to reply after getting through the middle of the opposition defence, but the home team's keeper Maciel Paulo Ornelas was simply unbeatable. The crowd roared its approval when Maciel Paulo Ornelas somehow managed to block a shot which seemed to be a certain goal by 1855's Ally Scarrow 79 minutes into the game, following a good move through the middle. A bit later, 1855's Herbert Wan easily reduced the lead to 2 - 1 after a misunderstanding in the home side's central defence. 1855 claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 54 percent.

Most important Saxons player was Philippe Bonnafous. However, Maciel Paulo Ornelas made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating 1855 player was without a doubt Kieran Johnson. On the other hand, Lee Atwell's play was disheartening. The match ends 2 - 1.
