Yesterday was the last game of the hattrick season and it ended up being horrible for me. My team has pretty much been in the lead since the halfway point but after a run of draws the other teams had caught up and I was only leading by a point. I HAD to win yesterdays game to get the medal.
I was pretty confident as the team I was playing was 2nd last but it was an away match at their home ground and my team spirit was a bit lame after the draws. So I told them to that this was the “Match of the Season” so that they would play harder. This means that after the game their team spirit would drop, but I was willing to run that risk just to win the league.
Their team scored, then my team came back a few minutes later. It was 1-1 at half-time and possession was even at 50%. Immediately after the break they came out and scored. My guys brought it back to 2-2 but went awol after that and let in another goal. From then on it was all about the other team, but my swedish goalkeeper kept the score at 3-2. Not even the new $6 million defender helped. My guys just didn’t have the heart to make a comeback and when the game was all over so was our season. We came second overall and there was no medal in our trophy cabinet.
Glory was ripped from us right at the end. It was like we were the evil team that the mighty ducks had overcome. At least I can take joy that Jason Marriott was the highest scorer in the league with 23 goals. Like any other defeated team I get to say “there’s always next season”.
