An energetic start to our match and some very good combination play saw us take a clear lead early on. It’s lovely to see players passing to others in better positions.
There were some amazing strikes from Caden, Oscar and Tom. Everyone had a go at scoring but the best thing is we created lots of chances by moving the ball out wide and crossing the ball. Training is paying off!
Luke earned us our first penalty of the season and only just missed the target. I’m sure his first goal will come soon. Keep trying Luke.
The final 10 minutes saw the most amazing turnaround. We started to lose our shape and it seemed that no one wanted the ball. What should have been a comfortable finish turned into a nail biting finale. The good work in the previous 30 minutes help us hold on. Phew.
Something to think about – hassle teams to win the ball back, play in your positions all the time and never stop playing until the final whistle.
Well done to Tom who was our ‘Player of the Match’. He scored some quality goals, dribbled really well and passed to others when needed. Great game, Tom.
