U11A Football v Riley House

Wednesday 18th January 2017

Score 9 – 3

u11a v Riley 18 Jan

After the disappointment of having our first match cancelled and as far as clichés go, this really was a game of two halves! However this year’s under 11 A team got their first half, of their first match off to a flier scoring within the first 2 mins courtesy of the calmness and composure of our up front trio of Callen, Fredrick and Archie and the next couple of goals swiftly followed suit!

Playing 7 a side football is never easy especially when it comes down to trying to run an effective formation, in saying that the front three were complimented with the solid defensive wall that is Archie, Thomas and Geordie and throughout the match let very little through! Leading up to this match we had been concentrating on trying to play a wide game and attack up the flanks using the teams blistering pace and this was obvious to due to the fact the goals kept tumbling in from all angles! A momentary lapse of concentration just before half time, allowed Riley to claim back a very well taken goal and at half the scores was 7-1.

Riley had been spurred on by the words of wisdom from their coach and came flying back into action as soon as the 2nd half whistle had been blown scoring very quickly! However the U11s took deep breath and continued where they had left off in the first half applying the pressure and keeping the Riley goal keeper busy! The introduction of Finlay allowed us to continue our game plan and the shots kept coming but the goalie was up to the challenge in the 2nd half. Mac Rutherford, was a commanding presence in goal soaking up the shots and taking charge of his defence!

Credit to all the boys who played, and with the first game done and dusted it’s only onwards and upwards from here! Well done boys!
