On Saturday, when those fortunate enough to still have games on enjoyed a good soaking & buffeting, the U10 Tornadoes brought home the silverware from MKDDL Cup Finals Day at Moretonville’s Gawcott ground. Well done to the team, the coaches and all those who supported them. Here is their match report:-
The weather was horrendous, but that was to be the only down side to an otherwise perfect morning for the Tornadoes. So far unbeaten this season, we went into the game full of confidence facing a team that we have failed to beat before. City Colts Sharks started on the front foot hitting the post within a minute of the game. This gave the Tornadoes a wake up call and from that point we never looked backed. We created chance after chance with slick passing moves through the midfield. The movement & tempo of our attacking play was something the Sharks just couldn’t handle as we went on to score 4 goals in a crazy 12 minute spell. Playing with plenty of confidence we continued to to create chances & stay on the front foot for the remainder of the half.
Half time 4-0.
The second half started much like the first, with the Sharks pressing to get back into the game, with long high balls into our box – something our defence dealt with very well.
With the weather & pitch worsening, the game became scrappy with plenty of misplaced passes. At this point both teams looked shattered. With 15 minutes of the game left, the Tornadoes sprung into life again. We started to move the ball quicker & get in behind the Sharks defence. Two very well worked goals took the score to 6-0 and that’s the way it finished.
A dominant performance from the Tornadoes & the joy was there for all to see with players, parents & coaches celebrating with a chorus of ‘CHAMPIONIES’ at the final whistle.
A big well done must go to City Colts Sharks who gave their all throughout the game. They conducted themselves very well & were very gracious in defeat.
We meet again next week in the league!
