Shocking weather reduced many pitches to a quagmire and postponed matches:
The U12 Girls smashed Omonia 11-0 away in the Cup. Despite the terrible weather and multiple postponed games, the Dragon’s put last weekend behind them with a thumping victory. Relentless total football from a characterful squad.
The U13, 14, 15 &17 Girls all had their matches postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
The New U11 Boys beat Pro FA 5-2 at home. After conceding two early goals the Dragons made some cute tactical changes and coupled with the right attitude, got right back into the game by scoring 5 on the trot. An inspiring victory at St Mark’s Park that lead to some over excitement and time to reflect.
The U12 Boys narrowly lost 4-5 at St Joseph’s. The first loss of the season for the Dragons but it was another thrilling encounter as both teams chased each other for goals throughout the game. A learning curve for the young Dragons who will want to keep scoring whilst tightening their defence.
The U13 Boys away game to Headstone Manor was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
The U14 Boys beat Wealdstone 6-0 at home. The Dragons bounced back from last week’s defeat in brilliant style by finding their shooting sensibilities again and pulling together as a squad. A big win for the brave.
The U15 Boys beat Pro FA 3-2 at the Scrubs in an away match. As Pro FA’s pitch was waterlogged the match was switched to the Scrubs. The Dragons battled trough in a close encounter to ultimately win.
The U16 Boys beat Hillingdon Abbots 9-0 at home. The Abbots arrived seemingly in peak condition and indeed took the Dragons a considerable time to score their first goal. The Dragons kept battling their way up the hill only to hit the post, or shoot wide, but eventually the first goal came and from then on there was little doubt as to who would win. The title race is back on.
