The closest unvisited ground near my place last Saturday was a game between RFC Meux and ROC Charleroi. Last season RFC Meux won their league but this season they're having a much harder time, being in a relegation position. The visitors from Charleroi are having a much better season, being in 4th position after 2 consecutive promotions.

The home team started very well and had the chance to score but they failed to convert the penalty. 10 minutes later the visitors already had their 3th big chance and scored the first goal of the evening. Just before the break the home team also managed to score, making it 1-1 at halftime.

After the break the visitors were much stronger, making it 1-2. After 5 crazy minutes the visitors were leading 2-4 and Yoroma Jatta scored a hattrick! With only 10 more minutes to go the visitors made it 2-5. But the home team didn't give up but they only managed to score their 3th goal of the evening, 3-5.

RFC Meux has a lovely, old ground and the fans from ROC Charleroi created some good atmosphere, great evening out!
