A nail-biting, edge of your seat, razor close game
Jacob and I went to the footy on Saturday – a night game: Collingwood (Pies) v North Melbourne (Roos). We met up with a friend and his boys and caught the train in together. It was my first ever live footy match, and I enjoyed myself despite neither of the teams playing being mine.
It was a very close game – Collingwood made a good come-back to lead at the end of the second quarter, and at one stage leading by 3 goals in the third, which pleased Jacob tremendously. But North Melbourne made a strong surge in the last quarter and with a quick succession of goals stole the lead – by 3 goals!
We had to leave before the final minutes to beat the rush to the train, but we heard that while Collingwood scored a few more goals, North still beat them by 7 points.
The close games are the most exciting ones, but it has done nothing for my results or ranking in the office footy-tipping.
