A much moved fixture, originally this game should have been played in late January, was played on Easter Saturday which meant United was left with a very short squad with players unavailable through a myriad of reasons. Ian Mañasco made a number of changes as a result. Kaylan Rumbo covered at Left Back for Jared Buhagiar who moved into the centre of defence. Evan Coleing started on the left of midfield while Justin Collado played off main striker Andrew Lopez. It was a bad day at the office that saw United lose and, to compound the misery, saw it’s players ill discipline see two red cards. This result leaves the fight for the title wide open and it will in all likelihood go down to the wire. In the words of the great Sir Alex Ferguson, ‘squeaky bum time!’ Your usual reporter was not at the match so no detailed report today. Enjoy your Easter break readers and United will be back on the pitch for the 2nd Division League Cup Semi Final vs Angels FC next Sunday at 18:30.
