Fellow Waterlogged Dragons
With a deluge on Saturday most matches were called off:
The U11s Girls beat Kinja at home 6-2. Despite the muddy and cold conditions the Dragons showed their spirit. Within the first few minutes they fired the ball into the back of Kinja’s net and then quickly followed with another. Despite missing their goalkeeper the Dragons were bold and kept on attacking to bang in another four goals.

The U16 Whites lost 1-3 away to Brook House. Amid a hailstorm, the Dragons went 2 nil down but were offered a lifeline in the form of a penalty, just before the interval, which alas they squandered. In the second half the Dragons found an extra gear and piled on the pressure resulting in a well-taken, long-range goal. As they pushed for the equaliser they were caught with a sucker punch which made the score line look more one-sided than the Dragons deserved.

The Firsts lost away to St. Panteleimon . The Dragons started well and In the 10th minute found themselves in front of an empty goal but a difficult shot just missed. The game was then equal with both teams creating few opportunities . St. Panteleimon took the lead in 18th min before the Dragons equalized. Just before half time the referee gave St. Panteleimon a penalty on incomprehensible grounds. It took time to clarify the situation but the referee did not change his mind leaving St. Panteleimon to score. The Dragons then fell apart and lost faith to allow St. Panteleimon to pull ahead and win. One bad refereeing decision had changed everything.
The Reserves drew 2-2 with Cantenay Park at Linford Christ Stadium. The Dragons played well in the first half and then much less well in the second. The match was spoilt by a string of poor refereeing decisions to leave the match an unsatisfactory draw with two clear penalties not awarded to the Dragons
