Results W/E 9th February 2020

The wind and rain came between football and the Dragons on the Sunday:

The Firsts beat Sporting Hackney 1-0 at home. The Dragons started well, scoring at their first attempt and three minutes later they could have been 2-0 up but missed an empty goal from 5 yards. The Dragons continued to control the match until five minutes from half time they conceded a penalty and had to rely on their goalie to make a fantastic save. The second half was rather a nervy affair but the Dragons held on to gain another 3 points.

The Reserves had no match scheduled and all the Boys junior matches were all called off due to the storm.

The U14 Girls lost against Whetstone Wanderers Wildcats at home. In the first half both teams struggled to play good football – it looked it would end 0-0 but with 7 mins left the ball broke to the Wildcats and their speculative shot smashed the crossbar before agonisingly bouncing just over the line. Within a minute of the restart the Dragons conceded a devatating and unlucky second goal. The Wildcats grew in confidence but 16 mins later the Dragons scored from a free-kick with the ball delightfully floating over the keeper. The match was back on but the Dragons experienced heartbreak, yet again, with the Wildcats getting their third goal from a looping attempt from the halfway line before defending well to the end.

The U12 Girls lost against Broomwood FC away. The Dragons attacked from the start and eventually scored from great passing and team work. Broomwood then equalised put the Dragons off their game and at half time they were 1-2 down. The ensuing half time talk seemed to perk the Dragons up but it was not to be their winning day.

The U11 Girls lost to Hanwell at home as they enjoyed centre stage billing on the main pitch for the first time this year. The Dragons struck first, taking an early 1-0 lead in front of a boisterous home crowd. The Dragons then conceded three goals over the course of the next hour, but arguably played some of their best football of the season.

The U10s trained in preparation to joining the League
