U11 Youths v Dynamo (Colts Div) (H) L1-2 (HT 0-0) (Kyle) MOM : Charles
Luca Ojeda; Charles Calzia, Malcolm Orsot (C), Angus Ritchie, Jack Hemmings, Ruben Mauricio, Thomas Higgs, Billy Whitewick, Marco Bullock, Sub : Kyle Baker
With 3 new U10 players in the side (special mentions for Thomas who had a fine game), this was a good effort to the only team to outplay us last season. 0-0 after a scrappy first half with Dynamo shading it. 2nd half saw us get more into the game & after 10mins of 2nd half we took the lead with Marco holding up the ball & delaying his through ball for Kyle to burst onto who took a touch & from just inside the right hand corner of the penalty drilled his shot home. Dynamo then started to put us under pressure (hitting the bar), & we look to hit them on the counter, special mention for Luca who pulled out 3 superb saves, then with 10mins to go they equalised after sustained pressure, with Jack then Charles & having to come off to shake off knocks sustained in the battle for the ball before returning to the fray. we started to push forward in greater numbers looking for the winner & minutes before the end one such move broke down for Dymamo to counter attack & break away to get the winner. Even the Ref said we deserved a draw !
