Kensington Dragons Results W/E 15th May 2022
A weekend marked by penalties as the FA Cup and Harrow Youth League Trophy alike were decided from the spot kick.
The Firsts drew 3-3 with CB Hounslow at home in their final game of the year. The Dragons started well, controlling the first half to score first. As the match progressed in the intense heat the Dragons relaxed, whilst CB Hounslow pressed to take advantage of sloppy play in the dying embers of the game to equalise. Reviewing the season, it would be fair to say that the Dragons ended with a strong finish in the League and the Cup. The important next step is to start the 2022/23 season with practiced purpose with their Premiership position assured.
The Blues and the Old Dragonians had no games.
The U16 Girls were beaten 1-4 away at Hampstead. The Dragons were immediately at a disadvantage from missing some players, the deficit was made worse at half time due to players suffering from queasiness in the hot Saturday sun. The Dragons gave it their all but with another player down the challenge was too large. The Coach vows the Dragons will be “bigger and better next season,” .
The U14 Girls won 3-2 away at Ickenham. In the penultimate game of the season, the Dragons showed their usual high standard of heart, determination, and desire to win. The Dragons worked hard especially in the second half to retain their lead and have one more game to end a brilliant season.
The U13 Girls were beaten away by Actonians. If there was ever a game of two halves, this was it. In the first half the opposition had the privilege of fielding some of their brutish U14s and this was reflected in the unfavourable score line. However! In the second half the Dragons showed true grit with surprising organisation despite the score. The Dragons held their opponents 0-0 in the second half and won a deserved pat on their collective backs.
The U12 Girls and U11 Girls had no matches.
The U16, U14, U12 and U11 Boys had no games.
The U15 Boys lost at home to Kodak, ending hopes of reaching the League Trophy Cup Final. Kodak were a formidable opponent having only lost one match all season in the division above. The match proved even handed but with Kodak having the edge when presented with an opportunity to score. The Dragons have improved immeasurably over the season and will be promoted to chase Kodak up the rankings.
The U13 Boys just lost out on penalties away at Brook House in the League Trophy Semi Final. Another game of 2 halves where initially the Dragons were shaky and conceded midway through the first. In the second the Dragons composed themselves and equalised shortly after the break. With the final score 1-1, the contest went to penalties which the Dragons lost 2-3. Despite heartbreak, the Coaches are immensely proud of the boys for their unbeaten Trophy run of 8 wins and 2 draws.
The U10 Boys trained.
