Blacks Failed To Turn Up Against Devious Opponents

If the last meeting between these two sides 11 months ago was anything to go by, winning at all cost, even at the expense of incurring senseless and serious hurt to Sunny Tharidu, which put him out of action for months, the Hilderincs’ opponents went a step further when they tried to hoodwink everyone when they fielded unregistered players, in clear violations of the ESPZEN League, just to claim an underhanded advantage in their pursuit of undeserved credit. 

While the manner in which the Blacks failed to click into their usual stride, the underperformance, especially in the first half will solely be their own undoing, they would have genuine reason to feel aggrieved when the scorer of two of their opponents’ four goals was parachuted in without due consideration to the regulations that clearly states that all players must be listed prior to kickoff, and one can only speculate how many other games they had played the same ruse.

Though the number and strength was at its optimal, the Hilderincs failed to show up and started disjointed and patchy at best.

And despite the fact that a goal by the aforementioned illegal player put them on the back foot, the Blacks responded well enough, but were repeated apprehended resulting in several freekick, but were unable to make the most of the opportunities.

However, a highly controversial decision by the referee perplexed the Hilderincs when he point to a freekick on the edge of the box instead of spot after Sebastian Eraso was recklessly fouled, earning himself several lacerations instead of a seemly stonewall penalty.

The second half proved to be the game changer when the Blacks, in their bid to get back on level terms, though the hit the post through Diego Baptista in the early minutes, left their rearguard exposed and were penalised by the opponents in similar fashion, perhaps they only way they knew how to play in their limited imagination, though they will point that it worked well for them.

Not one to wallow in defeatism, the Hilderincs pulled a goal back with ten minutes to go through Sebastian Eraso after the Colombian was the beneficiary of a deft pass by Diego Baptista, before placing the ball craftily into the back of the net.

The goal not only displayed the Blacks’ defiance even in an unpleasant defeat, it made spectacle the lack of sportsmanship and wanton lack of class even in a winning position when the goalkeeper tried to prevent the Hilderincs from retrieving the ball, even to the extent of trying to shove the player against the post, in testament to their win at all cost crass mentality.

Despite fervent fightback in the closing stages of the game, the Blacks were unable to add to their goal, which proved consolatory, but the Hilderincs will not take consolation to their opponents’ lowly methods, though they themselves will man up to take responsibility for the outcome.

With an official compliant already filed with ESPZEN, the Hilderincs will let the letter of the law deal with the deliberate misdemeanour as they dust themselves off and prepare for challenges ahead.

Certain to be accused of being a bad loser by a hypocritical opponent, the Blacks will point to the fact that they have lost many games to equally crass teams than this, but have always remained dignified in defeat, but being blatantly and unethically hoodwinked is one the Blacks will not stand for.
