Pride of place this week must go to the U16 Boys who scored the deciding goal milliseconds before the ref blew the final whistle – leaving their fans gasping for air as they collapsed from the tension:
The U17 Boys home game to Brunswick was postponed.
The U16 Boys beat Hillingdon Abbots 3-2 in the Trophy Cup at home in the most thrilling of matches. Before one could say “the Dragons are a bit rusty because they have not played recently” they were 0-2 down to the consternation of the home fans who are used to winning. The Dragons pulled back to 2-2 and then invaded the Abbots box but just could not score. Finally, in the last minute, the Dragons scored to universal delight – except that is by the good citizens of Hillingdon.
The U15 Boys had no game.
The U14 Boys beat Wealdstone 5-1 away. The Dragons burst onto the pitch, eager to get going after so many games being called off, and ran ransack around Wealdstone. The Dragons were disappointed to concede a goal but are proving they can turn drills and training into results and points.
The U13 Boys just lost 3-4 to Headstone Manor away. The Dragons scored early from a superb looping shot and from there on it was a competitive, evenly matched game. Headstone were lucky to be awarded a penalty, after a fair barge, which proved the pivotal point. Such is a footballer’s life however and one has to knuckle down and play the game as one finds it. This was a good Dragons performance.
The U12 Boys away game to CS Rangers was postponed.
The New U11 Boys drew 0-0 to Larkspurs Rover at home. The Dragons worked very hard for a goal and despite seemingly scoring twice both were disallowed. Still, the Dragons are unbeaten in eight matches.
The U10s trained in preparation for entering the League.
The U17 Girls home game to Actonians and the U15 Girls home game to Wealdstone were postponed.
The U14 Girls drew 2-2 to Ruislip Rangers away. The Dragons started well with the first goal coming courtesy of a corner kick that flew straight in. In the second half, the Dragons conceded early on but managed to again go one up after a clever tactical switch. An unfortunate defensive mistake let Ruislip equalise to share the points.
The U13 Girls home game to Actonians was postponed.
The U12 Girls were beaten by Most Wanted Elite away. A gruelling double-header where the result was tough to swallow for the young Dragons. They will survive!
The Firsts away game to PFC Vitoria and the Blues home game to Acton Ealing Whistlers were both postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
The Old Dragonians lost 0-1 to Hare & Hounds away. The game could have gone either way as the Dragons battled to the end after going behind to H&H from a 25 yard screamer. It was only the woodwork that prevented the Dragons grabbing a point as a last-minute free kick rattled the crossbar.
