U10 Football Yr 5 Cup Semi-final
This game was touch to be played and go following the rain that fell overnight on Sunday However we decided to go for it and the game went ahead on a muddy pitch. The Bay were a strong team with every player competing for youth teams outside of school and this was the difference between the 2 sides today. That extra bit of game awareness gained from playing every week.
We were 3 down at half time all goals and didn’t seem to be in the game. However the second half was a very different story and our team came awake, started to win tackles and believe that they could get something from the game. Despite losing another goal we had 3 good chances to score and mounted some good attacks with Seth grabbing a goal with a well taken low shot to the corner of the goal.
The Bay continued to push forward but we had started to hold better defensive positions and broke up most of these attacks. Regan made some great saves but eventually the pressure told and The Bay picked up on some loose clearances to score again.
Greenmount 1-6 The Bay.
The result does not reflect the game and had we taken our second half chances it might have been 4-4 with all to play for.
“Schools football is there to develop players but more importantly to give players access to play in competitive football. Winning is great but losing is never a problem if the team have given their very best. Today in the second half our team did just that. Well done lads.”
