Report

Partizan Prague were unlucky not to win against Sekuritas, a Czech team made up of security guards Going in to Saturdays' game Partizan were looking to build on their impressive 9-2 victory on the glorious day of March 9th (many a great man has been born on that day). The game started brightly with Partizan having a couple of solid chances. The closest they came was a shot by Martinez which glanced off the inside post from a tight angle. Partizan were to be rewarded for their early pressure when Sammi "the flying" Finn sent a lovely through ball to Chris aka Chief, who then rounded the tubby keeper to slot the ball in with ease. Things looked bright for Partizan, although Sekuritas did look dangerous with # 15 hovering over on the right wing waiting for the fast break. The visitors broke the stubborn Partizan defense on the half hour making it 1-1. Partizan's latest keeper Radek did a fantastic job stopping a dangerous free kick from the visitors who despite their lack of any great skill, always threatened to score again. With just 10 minutes left in the 1st half they did just that with an abysmal penalty called against Colin "the Thug" Seblack. It was clean challenge and despite the protests of the players and the linesman, a penalty was given and then securitas player scored the penalty. With Partizan down 2-1 at the break it was decided to bring on some fresh legs. The second half started bright enough with some good passes being put together and a lot more pressure. Despite the pressure the visitors snuck another goal back after the largest player on the field made a spaghetti mix of the Partizan right side going from the half-way line and across the field to score a great individual goal, punk. Despite being 3-1 down Partizan were by no means giving up and they begin to work the wings affectively. Several chances were agonizingly close with 2 open goals missed by newcomer Todd Benson and long-time veteran Jaime Martinez. There were free kicks, open chances and a flurry of corners yet no one seemed to be able to get it in. Benson even tried a bicycle kick yet the power was not there and the goalie simply yawned, sent an sms and then caught the ball. Then with just 18 minutes to go there was light at the end of the tunnel. After good work by the Belarusian prima Dona Sergey Zmhako and Dan Finlay, the ball popped open for Benson who watched it swatted away by the Sekuritas defender. Surprisingly, the young Boy Scout admitted to the handball and Finlay coolly placed the penalty in the back of the net. It was now 3-2 and the game was looking within reach. Then after an amazing lack of concentration Sekuritas scored again after Radek did well to stop the initial shot, the unmarked midfielder crashed it in from outside the box. Partizan nonetheless kept pushing forward and were rewarded with a late conciliation goal with 4 minutes left when Zmhako rounded the keeper and slotted one in. Partizan kept up the pressure to the final whistle but in the end it was a too little too late.
