U8 football v Glebe House
We went out to the field thinking of what they would be like as, the reason is, we had never played them and so didn’t know what to expect. We started warming up by just kicking the ball back and forth until the opposition got to where we were. We started playing well but then their number 10 slammed as well as a barge through our defence and planted it into the back of the net and made their team move up to 1-0. Ashley then stopped him for a while but then Ashley forgot about him and their goalkeeper from a recent goal kick smashed it to the number 10 who had nobody on that side of the pitch and so had a clean run at goal and smacked it to the back of the net. After that, he kind of, I guess, was just in the perfect position really. He got the ball, he ran down the pitch, he cleaned up his chances, shot, and scored and that was the end of the first half.
In the second half it was kind of just a cleanup for us. Although we were hit by one more goal we then intercepted the ball and managed to get the mop out and clean up by scoring 2 more goals. Despite these two goals, we weren’t able to get ahead of the opposition. Sadly we were defeated by a team who had the edge due to a skilled and much bigger player. Final score was 4-2 to Glebe House.
Thank you to Mitch for coaching and the cooks and matron for match tea. Man of the match goes to George T for excellent spacing and shooting. Special mention to Ollie for consistently great skills on the pitch.
