Under 9s B match report

St Edward’s Prep at 2-3 St Joseph’s

St Edward’s Prep 1-3 Sherfield

Very good start to the football season for the Under 9 B team. Although we lost both games the boys should be very pleased with themselves. They passed the ball well and worked as a team the whole time. We got off to a flyer as James scored first against St Joseph’s with a great strike from the edge of the box into the bottom corner. We then conceded to a superb solo run and clinical finish. Siddhant then spotted the keeper caught in no mans land and hit the ball just inside their half, catching the keeper off guard and scoring a fantastic goal. However this was not enough as St Joe’s then brought the game to us and ended up victorious.

Next up was Sherfield. We started slow in this game and had conceded 2 goals very quickly. The boys then had to dig deep and fight to get back into the game, on the stroke of half time we won a penalty, up stepped Nico V who confidently smashed it into the bottom corner.

Although we conceded 6 goals. Elliot was outstanding in goal saving multiple shots keeping us in the game.

MOTM- Nico V – scored a brilliant penalty and worked hard the whole time with a number of crucial tackles and interceptions and some great passes.
