Under 11 DDSL A1
The first half was a very tight affair, with both teams attacking at every opportunity. The football was neat and tidy with some clever moves and good use of the ball by both sides. It was a difficult day for goalkeepers and both keepers produced some top class saves. The Saints went into the break with a slender 3-2 lead.
The second half started very much the same with lots of fantastic team work by both teams. The young players received plenty of encouragement from the supporters on the line who appreciated the efforts in horrendous conditions. The Saints were the stronger side and the class showed in the second half with four more goals added to the score sheet. Ryan Brereton scored a fantastic hat-trick, Alex Cobzaru was on the score sheet with two goals and Matus Maniusis & Darius Lipsiuc who bagged one each.
Well done to both teams and the referee who were never phased by the weather conditions. This young team is packed with talent and it's very pleasing to witness the progress they are all making.
