Matchday 31 Review – Mito Hollyhock 1-1 Tokyo Verdy (2016)

Matchday 31 Review – Mito Hollyhock 1-1 Tokyo Verdy

Verdy got back to into league action against Mito Hollyhock last weekend and Verdy came away from the game with a probably a deserved draw looking at the matchday stats, but it was Mito who almost struck first but it was just past the post – Verdy scored on the 27th minute after a low cross into the box and a Verdy (maybe a Mito player touched it) player touched it and it hit the Mito GK, somehow the ball hit off the Mito GK’s foot and crawled into the back of the net and it was 1-0 Verdy even if it was a weird goal – Verdy were lucky to be 1-0 up at half time after Mito hit the post but Mito equalised after a Verdy DF passed it back to Suzuki and he didn’t clear it far enough and it fell to Keisuke Funatani who simply just kicked it into the back of the net to make it 1-1 but neither side could get another goal so it finished with a point each. Onto the next league game and then another break from the league for another Emperor’s Cup tie Away to Yokohama F Marinos.
