Kensington Dragons U18s 10 Vs 2 Wealdstone FC
Terrible weather has seen many games called off, and this one could have been as well. After the result Wealdstone were wishing it was.
The pitch was in no condition for fluent passing football, but that is the Dragon’s game, and they stuck to it. The swirling wind in their faces made it a necessity, but the stodgy mud held them back. With all the elements against them the Dragons started slowly but started to impose themselves and quickly went into a 3 nil lead. Oren was smooth up front, and Miley and Alex were dangerous out wide.
Unfortunately the Dragons started praising each other forgetting football is for 90 minutes and not 25. The midfield lost their shape in search of goals and allowed Wealdstone back into the game. The referee seemed to want to even things up and gave a series of sort free kicks against the home side, two of which ended up in the net. Wealdstone started to use the elements, and finished the half strongly. Despite being in the lead the Dragon’s left the field forlornly!
The midfield we’re reminded of their jobs, and the strikers were warned to be more clinical, and the second half saw a tenacious Dragon’s team put Wealdstone to the sword in dramatic, ruthless fashion! Miley went on a scoring spree which saw him grab 8 goals in the game.
Assisted by his team, he was strong, tricky, resilient and ruthless. The other goal scorers were Mo and Kevin, but despite such positive individual performances this was a team performance.
Having been out for so long, the team adapted quickly to the new players, and gave an outstanding performance. Also in the face of ridiculous provocation the team were very mature and extremely professional. A great performance delivered with a great maturity. Onwards and upwards.
