We look forward to seeing you soon.

Starting with one player short, SAC lost two quick goals thanks to some superb striking by the opposition’s centre forward. Two extra players finally arrived and SAC were able to create a number of promising chances thanks to Harold Auss and Pascal Gastebois. SAC worked hard in midfield and defense to counter the quick passing and movement of Belle Ile who also continued to create a number of chances. Managing to keep the score to 2-0 was a credit to SAC, indeed shortly after kicking off the second half SAC conceded another goal after some sloppy defending. The pressure was really on now for SAC to get back in the game and seasoned center forward Pascal Gastebois was up to the task opening SAC’s scoring with a wonderful free kick from just outside the penalty box, it swerved into the top right hand corner making their keeper look pretty clueless. SAC followed up with another quick goal following some good passing in the midfield and with the score at 3-2 the game was wide open again. However, Belle Ile were able to take the game away from SAC following another powerful strike from their centre forward and a sensational 30 yard shot from one of their centre midfielders.

SAC still didn’t give up, Mikael Jayet showing his fighting spirit with a terrific run and accurate pass finish. He was then brought down in the penalty box trying to do the same move again allowing Gastebois to score his 2nd goal with a precision taken penalty. SAC had a life line to draw but with 1 minute left it was a bridge too far with the final score 5-4. 

Chairman and Manager Laurent Brault was still very upbeat after the game and was heard saying “There are many positives that I can take out of today, clearly Paul Bowyer has been working on his fitness over the close season, Gerald Strouts showed real potential as a goalie and we have a good blend of youth and experience. We just need to turn up on time now and make sure we have some goal keeper gloves”. Most of the team took to the bar and then tucked into the delicious Club brunch.
