14s Fall at the first!
Cup is empty for Blair
Disappointing final score this afternoon for the Under 14s, going down 2-3 at Home to Greenways Aces in the League Cup. We had made it very clear to the boys that this game would be very different from the opening game of the season, as the Aces would be looking for revenge! Credit to them they came out the traps very fast and shocked our boys with two quick goals to be 0-2 up in four minutes, yes four minutes! We couldn't believe what we was seeing the boys just were not at the races and were slow to react in the tackle and to the second ball, it took the goals and another 20 minutes until they actually got into the game. They then started to put more pressure on the opposition and were awarded for their work rate with a penalty, which Kian dispatched comfortably. We then went into half time on top and looking to turn the game, second half and the boys continued where they left in the first we just couldn't get that clear chance until Morgan swung in a free kick which Owen got on the end of to get the equaliser. This was it we could see they game had turned, so we thought! Centre was taken a long ball played once again to their number 7 who this time got away from the defence and bang 2-3 straight away, i couldn't believe it so close to turning the game just to see it slip. Players Player: Owen, good right midfield display today, worked the ball well and battled to help his team out when under pressure, connected well for his goal. Managers Player: Almost had the perfect game, up and down the left hand side and was kept busy with their number 7, good persistence throughout, got some good crosses in and growing as a captain each week. Unfortunate result but we learn from it and move onto the next, pleased with the battling the boys are showing when behind and fighting back as a team. #uptheblair #foundationsareforever
