A tough match
By Pramod Bhagat
Wealdstone U8 Green vs Hendon Youth C
Not a great day for football with a constant drizzle of rain for the entire game. The pitch was also in a terrible way with a few potholes making it a difficult game.
Wealdstone U8 Green vs Hendon youth U8 C
Alfie, Zac, Malachi, Robert, Divij, Aaron, Michael and Chayden.
We got off to a really great start but couldn’t find the back of the net with their goalie making some great saves. However we soon found ourselves 2-0 down with Hendon finding the back of the net with with 2 quick goals.
Zac managed to pull one back but a great free kick put them 3-1 up at half time.
Another 2 goals at the start of the 2nd half had us on the back foot again.
It was great to see the boys keep trying and with their never give in attitude Chayden managed to pull one back. We pushed for more goals but we just couldn’t get the ball into the net. One more goal from Hendon killed the game off for us. 6-2 being the finale score.
Not a great result for us on a not so great pitch but again it was good to see us not give up.
Great spirit shown by the team and the score was not a true reflection on the game.
Thanks again to the manager, coaches and to the parents.
