My soccer results and the Lions get beaten after the final siren

Wow what an awesome game. We won 7-1. Last week they were beaten 7-0 so that wasn't so surprising. What was great was how well this team is gelling.
I even had 3 goal opportunitues. I headeed a ball that the keeper punched off my head to save it, IO had a 1 on 1 with the keeper that he saved and I mistruck a volley that would have been a goal if I had hit it right. Still these opportunities will turn to goals in time.

Brisbane Lions vs Sydney Swans
What was disappointing was watching our home team the Lions play the Swans last night. I think the stats were that the Lions led for 115 minutes of the game, the game was then drawn for 5 minutes and just before the final siren sounded the swans full forward Barry Hall was given a free kick when he missed a mark as an arm came over his shoulder. It made no difference to him not getting the ball but he was given a free kick 30 metres out in front. He took his sweet time walking back and adjusting his socks and after the siren had gone he ran in and scored a goal taking the swans to the lead for the first time in the game. Most disappointing for the lions.
