Match Report - Holy Spirit U8s Black 5 - 2 Hucknall Sports Black Print E-mail

02/02/13 - After a long lay-off due to the poor weather, it was good to be back playing again.

Holy Spirit Black dominated the early stages and were 2-0 up within the first 10 minutes - both good strikes from Jacob. Hucknall started to get back into it in the second 10 minutes and good work from Jack, James and Zachary kept them at bay. Cam was relatively untroubled in goal, but pulled of a good save when one of the Hucknall players broke through our defensive line and looked like scoring - good, brave, keeping in a tricky "one-on-one" situation.

Our team kept up the pressure and nicked another goal through James just before half-time - shortly followed by a Hucknall strike that made it 3-1 at half-time.

Hucknall rallied in the second half, but good midfield play from Phoebe and Michael ensured that Hucknall could't settle on the ball. A goalmouth scramble saw the ball bob over the line for the HSCFC 4th - Zachary, Jacob, Jack & Freddie causing havoc in the Hucknall penalty-area. With Sam drawing the defence away from goal, Jacob had room to cut an angled bal past the Hucknall keeper for his hat-trick late on.

Final score - HSCFC Black 5 - Hucknall Sports Black 2

A good all-round team performance with positive passing, good positional play, increased desire and poise in front of goal - well done. Steve, Peter and I all "well pleased"!!
