London Athletic C vs Wealdstone U8 Green
Malachi, Zac, Michael, Divij, Chayden, Robert and Oliver.
Man of the match Oliver
Played in good conditions.
The last time we meet this team we lost 11-0 so everyone was a bit apprehensive about what was going to happen. The game started quickly with Wealdstone going forward at every opportunity. Zac had a number of chances but found their goalkeeper in fantastic form. Finally we got the goal we deserved with Chayden smashing the ball past the keeper. London Athletic tried for a equaliser but our defensive play was outstanding. With Michael, Oliver, Divij and Robert playing as rotating defenders it didn’t seem that Athletic would score. Finally with lots of pressure they finally managed to get 1 back, 1-1 the score at half time. The start of the second half and a dodgy penalty gave them the lead. A good strike by Athletic and Wealdstone found themselves 3-1 down. The last 10 minutes and it was all out attack by Wealdstone with Robert, Chayden and Malachi all scoring great goals to take the score to 3-4.
The final minutes of the game seemed to take for ever but eventually the ref blew the final whistle. Relief for the players, coaches and parents.
Great come back by Wealdstone and a great team effort.
Well done boys.
Thanks again to the manager, coaches and to the parents.
