Under 12 Boys v Prep School Lions

Saturday, 15th February 2020

With Storm Dennis on its way we knew the weather wasn't going to be great from the moment we got onto the pitch. We got into pairs and moved the all, focusing on the weight of our passes because of the wind and surface. After a good warm up it was game time!

We started strongly, moving the ball quickly and keeping our shape from defence to attack. Unfortunately in the tenth minute we conceded a sloppy goal from a corner to go one down. We didn't let our heads drop and pretty much straight from kick off Arthur struck the ball into the bottom corner. That made it 1-1. We played some good football but just couldn't find that goal. Then in the last five minutes of the first period we played from the back into midfield, and then went wide to Bobby who took a touch forward and placed the ball into the corner so at the end of the first period we were winning 2-1. 

We mde a few changes and were told to switch the ball from side to side. Straight away Kai ran with the ball and finished it into the bottom corner which made it 3-1. we continued to dominate the game with Max having a shot from long range and the keeper palming the ball onto William's feet for a tap in.

We were were now winning comfortably and Jermaine played a great ball to William who again scored.

Then we went into the third period and the first onto the score sheet was Sam with an excellent finish to make it 6-1.Then Max had another shot from long range and the keeper palmed it out to Jermaine;s feet who placed it into the middle of the goal. We then took our ft off the gas for a little bit and they managed to get a shot in from range, but fortunately Rex punched it out to set us up on the break with Kai who dribbled from one side of the pitch to the other and placed it in the bottom left. Then we saw the game out and the match was over - 8-1.
