U12s Through To The Final
A win today sees our U12s through to the final of the OMYL Shield competition......
The match kicked off at a later time of 2pm and the boys were slightly nervous during warm up as they knew that a place in the final was at stake.
The first half was evenly matched with most of the play happening down the right hand side on the wing. The defence were well organised sticking to agreed strategy so that when the opponents were attacking they had a route back to the goalkeeper keeping there pass backs to the goalkeepers right hand side. This worked well with the opposition not really putting any pressure on the keeper, the defence also played very well using the off -side rule with the majority of their attacking failing, resulting with them drifting off side. Our break came midway through the first half again attacking down the right hand side with a lot of cross knit passing eventually finding its way through to Jacob Hay who unleashed a fierce drive at a very acute angle to the bottom left hand corner (1-0)
The second half started with Bardwell nested in our own half for 15 mins the defence held strong, pushing out corner after corner, and a few shots were taken by Quarry Rovers but with the safe hands of Patrick nothing was getting through. Subs were introduced with Taylor, Liam and Nikolia all coming on. The game got very scrappy towards the end with the home side pushing for an equaliser, with 26 mins on the clock we broke out and again another piece with close work between JonJo, William, Nikolia and Charlie Cotter resulted in another fierce drive from Charlie Cotter outside the box on the left hand side settling in the opponents bottom left hand corner (2 -0)
Well done team! A great result today and Final here we come.
