Goal fest at The Orchard.
Despite scoring four goals and twice leading by two clear goals The Yellows still came away from this high scoring game with no points to show from it.
The Yellows welcomed FC Deportivo Galicia (who ground share with our neighbours Bedfont Sports) to The Orchard to try to get some more points on the board having narrowly losing to them 2-1 earlier in the season.
The visitors took the lead through Juan Cambeiro on 12 minutes and already the game had opened up with both attacks taking the initiative. 0-1.
Four minutes later Darren Titre-Wilson scored for The Yellows to draw level.1-1. Both defences were struggling to cope with two sets of lively forwards and it was no surprise when Darren Titre-Wilson added the second for the home side to take the lead on 25 minutes.2-1.
The same player completed his hat-trick on 45 minutes after a penalty was awarded to the home side which he converted with ease. 3-1.
That should have been the hammer blow for the home side with them going into half time 3-1 up.
The Yellows failed to come out all guns firing for the second half at and took their foot off the pedal and were duly punished when Anton Fernandez scored for the visitors one minute after the restart to bring the score back to 3-2.
For the neutral spectators this was a great game to watch but for the home supporters it definitely wasn't.
However on 54 minutes The Yellows restored their 2 goal lead when Hugo Campos converted following a cross from the left 4-2.
The game was still end to end and on 66 minutes substitute Emilio Mendez pulled one back for the visitors to bring the score back to 4-3.
Deportivo were taken down to 10 men when on 71 minutes full back Gilmar Rodriguez was sent off following a 2nd yellow card.
This seemed to have the opposite effect on them and they proceeded to draw level when Anton Fernandez got his second goal on 78 minutes. 4-4.
The game was heading for a draw but 10 man Deportivo seemed to have the edge fitness wise and aptly named Daniel Alves scored on 88minutes to give the visitors the win.4-5.
New Yellows keeper Dave Hill had an afternoon he will want to forget having been responsible for at least three of the goals and possibly more.
Its easy to blame one person for the defeat but good sides have to look at their own responsibilities when things go wrong and letting Deportivo narrow the lead to one just after half time was the turning point of the match and The Yellows must also learn lessons from this game.
For the home side Darren Titre-Wilson's first-half hat rick was outstanding and one feels sorry that despite this he still finished on the losing side.
Congratulations to Deportivo for the win and we wish them well for the rest of the season.
Next game for The Yellows is away to mid-table AC London on the 9th December and on the 16th we welcome top three side Sheerwater FC.
