South West derbies for City futsal teams

Bristol Rovers, Cardiff City and Exeter City were the opponents for City as their futsal fixtures returned on Wednesday night (February 13th).

Four futsal teams were in action, made up of students enrolled on the Bristol City Community Trust's BTEC level 3 sports diploma course.

City’s first fixture of the day saw Bristol City G face local rivals Bristol Rovers C. City put in an excellent performance and led for the majority of the game, however Rovers found an equaliser in the final five minutes of the game and held City to a 1-1 draw.

The next fixture put two City teams head to head, with Bristol City E coming up against Bristol City F. This highly entertaining game was not short on controversy and the scoreline was finally settled in the dying seconds of the game as the officials deemed that BCFC E had managed to fumble the ball over the line to make the final score 3-3.

Following this game, Bristol City G made a return to the court to face Cardiff City. The Robins faced an uphill struggle after a couple of momentary drops in concentration led to the team finding themselves trailing 2-0. The Bristol City side however showed excellent fighting spirit and refused to give up on the game and were to able to bring the scoreline level with just a couple of minutes left on the clock. With the team growing confidence they very nearly snatched a winner in the closing stages of the game but were unable to find the back of the net and were forced to accept a 2-2 draw.

BCFC E’s remaining fixture again came against familiar opposition in the form of Bristol City H. This hugely entertaining game finished 3-2 in BCFC H's favour, with both teams playing very attractive, attacking futsal throughout.

The final two games of the day saw BCFC F face a well organised Exeter City C, while BCFC H faced an aggressive Exeter City D. City put a good effort in both of these matches however were unable to overcome their opponents in either games and lost 4-0 and 3-2 respectively.
