Results W/E 19th February 2023
The New U11 Boys won 4-0 away at Brook House. The Dragons played fantastically and at 2-0 up Brook House could not recover. The Dragons hope to rise up the divisions in the years to come but know to keep their boots firmly on the footballing grass.
The U12 Boys had no game.
The U13 Boys lost 1-4 to Hanwell Town away. The Dragons were decimated by colleagues being away over half term, but the core group wanted to fulfil the fixture regardless. For much of the match it was 0-0 with the Dragons very marginally the better team. Then, in quick succession, Hanwell scored two runaway goals and a penalty that changed the outcome.
The U14 Boys won 4-2 at home to Brook House. The Dragons found themselves 0-2 down at the break but came back out a totally different team to score 4 goals and stay at the top of the league.
The U15 Boys were beaten 0-3 by Belmont Bees away. The Dragons started brilliantly, playing direct, attacking football. It was a very evenly matched contest before the Bees managed to score just before half time. The Dragons then conceded twice more in what was ultimately a very tough match.
The U16 Boys had no game but remain Title Contenders.
The U17 Boys did not play.
The U10s trained in preparation for entering the League.
The U12 Girls had no game.
The U13 Girls drew 0-0 to Hillingdon Abbotts at home. A smaller team than usual played brilliantly and had many attempts at goal but could not find a way past the Abbotts resolute defence.
The U14 Girls had no game.
The U15 Girls lost to Hinton & Finchley Revolution in the Semi-Final of the Middlx Cup. The Dragons were unfortunately defeated by a well-drilled team an age-group above, yet they battled till the final whistle. Character building.
The U17 Girls had no game.
The Firsts had no game.
The Blues lost 1-3 at home to Wiseman West. Not the weekend the Blues wanted after taking the lead only to then let the game drift away.
The Old Dragonians lost 1-2 at home to Middlesex Arms. Playing with 10 men, the Old D’s set up to be compact and counterattack when the opportunity allowed, and this worked to perfection as the Dragons frustrated MA and caught them cold in the 80th minute to take a -0 lead. However, this spurred on the Middx Arms who resorted to a more physical approach, shall we say, and scored 2 late goals to snatch the win.
