Match Report

With four players out due to holidays, Max joined us from the under 10 Whites so we could field the bare 9.

Con went in goal in the first half and kept a clean sheet and distributed the ball out wide well. Eli played in the centre of defence and did exceptionally well clearing up and helping us counter attack. Max fitted into the team easily, playing wide right in the first half – some great runs down the wing and also the awareness to play the simple ball to a team mate, even if that meant going backwards. Finn scored the only goal of the half, his shot parried by the keeper but rolled into the net.

Second half Aiden went in goal after playing as our forward first half – Aiden had linked well with midfield and had a couple of chances to score.

Con put himself about up front and was rewarded with a goal and a free kick for his efforts. The goal was well created through Finn in centre of midfield to Max, Dom’s shot followed in by Con. Ash, playing injured, got the last one after Finn’s left foot shot was saved.

In truth it was a scrappy game. Defensively, we did well – Kane’s distribution out wide was very good; Alex M was a rock in the heart of defence second half and Dom was solid at right back and right midfield and we took the chances we had.

Two Players of the Week today. Eli for great defending – against a very skillful opponent in the second half, did not dive into challenges instead showing patience to wait for he mistake. Secondly Max – a real threat down the right hand side in the first half and combined well with Finn in the centre of midfield in the second.
