- U7 TORNADOES V U7 DEANS SPORTS
Saturday 11th March, Beech Farm, KO 11am, League.
After a 3 week layoff the boys were back in action against Deans Sports. This was a game where both defences were on top, with George Wadeson, Logan McFeely and Daire Cox producing rock solid performances when playing the sweeper role.
This was coupled with some excellent goalkeeping from both Daire Cox in the first half and Jack McMinn in the second half.
After scoring first through Jack McMinn, the boys went in at half time all square at 1 goal apiece.
Great energy and determination was shown throughout from the attackers with Flinn Rogers, Stewart Kay, Dylan Courtney and Alfie Lacey. All four of them were getting up and down the flanks launching attacks and tracking back to help out with defensive duties, all of which was done on a difficult pitch.
After falling 2 1 behind, a well taken goal from Alfie Lacey brought us a deserved leveller. Both teams had chances to find the winner however I felt a draw was a fair result, even the referee put in a good performance which is good to see.
Man of the match was Stewart Kay, with one mazy run that nearly resulted in a goal. For me this was the stand out moment of the game.
