With half term there were fewer matches:
The U11 Girls beat Alexandra Park 3-2 away. In a long sought after and well-deserved second win, the Dragons took an early lead and worked hard to keep it. The young Dragons are improving week on week and are creating more chances on goal whilst taking pressure off their keeper and defence.
The U12 Girls trained.
The U13 Girls were beaten at home by Barnet Nightingales. It was always going to be a tough game for the Dragons with a shortage of players up against Barnet’s full compliment. Even so, the Dragons worked tirelessly, showing their strength of good character.
The U14 Girls beat Alexandra Park 8-1 at home. The Dragons displayed some great passing and supreme determination to overcome the visitors. It is a testament to the quality and ambition of this squad that the Manager said, after such a thumping win, that the Dragons were ‘not at their best’.
The U16 Girls did not play.
The U11 Boys had their home game against Harrow St Marys cancelled as the opposition could not raise a team.
The U12 Boys were just beaten 0-1 at home by League Leaders London Athletic. This was a fantastic match with the Dragons playing exceptionally well to hold London Athletic at bay whilst nearly pulling off a great win. Alas it was not quite to be as London Athletic scored the only goal which proved decisive.
The U13 Boys drew 1-1 away at Princes Park. The Dragons battled hard and ultimately played well. Despite conceding midway through the first half, the Dragons found an equaliser just before halftime from a cracker of a free kick that flew into the top corner. It was then an even game with the Dragons creating opportunities to win but it was not to be.
The U14, U15 and U16 Boys had no matches.
The U10 Boys trained.
The Firsts were just beaten 2-4 at home by Brentham. On a weekend where almost all games in the MCFL Prem saw large goal tallies, the Dragons just came up short despite a stellar performance at the end to score 2 late goals. The Dragons need to start matches as they finish – on top! Back to the training ground to prepare for a big clash this coming weekend.
The Blues just lost at home 1-3 to Inter London. The Blues were thwarted on this occasion. Perhaps it was the earlier kick-off time that unsettled the Dragons.
The Old Dragonians were beaten 0-2 by Harrow Hive at home. Not the result the fantastic Old Ds were after, but they live to fight another day. The squad is growing every week and epitomises the Club’s reach and allure.
