U8's V Racing Club Warwick
Saturday December 16 2017Under 8's
Another bitterly cold morning for Wellesbourne’s last match of 2017 against Racing Club Warwick but this didn’t dampen the boys enthusiasm. Almost as soon as the starting whistle had blown Dylan scored a goal. Despite most of the action being at Warwick’s end when the ball did reach Wellesbourne’s end Joe showed immense positioning and made some great tackles. Dylan Joe and Sam S linked up really well with some fine passing to keep the action at Warwick’s end with many opportunities for goals. Sam S made an amazing shot from the half way line and then followed it quickly with a second goal making it 3-0 to Wellesbourne. Warwick managed a sneaky goal when the ball just rolled over the line. Sam H managed to prevent anymore goals with some great saves and with Joe making some defensive tackles the ball was back in Wellesbourne’s control. Liam showed his footwork skills and once Ewan gained possession he scored quickly followed by George who sent the ball whizzing past their goalie making it 5-1 at half time.
After half time Ewan was goalie and started off with a great save. Warwick wanted to even up the score and made several attempts with 2 of them getting through despite Ewan diving to save them. He did manage to stop anymore getting in and nearly managed to score one himself when kicking the ball from the goal. Lewis was the next player to score and after a couple of attempts Liam also put one in the back of the net. Sam S went for a hat trick from the midfield line and made it 8-3 to Wellesbourne. Just before the final whistle Lewis went for a goal but their goalie saved it, Dylan tried for the rebound but their goalie made another great save but finally Dylan poked it over the line to make the final score 9-3 to Wellesbourne. The boys have learnt a lot since the season started not just skills but also how to work together as a team. It was great to finish on such a high for the Christmas break hopefully followed by some more fantastic teamwork in 2018
