Tricky away tie for the U13s

Hayes and Yeading 5 v 1 Kensington Dragons – U13s LEAGUE CUP

The team arrived at H&Y with the pitch covered in mist more appropriate to a Sherlock Holmes story than a football match. Luckily, visibility was ok to play and despite the one sided score line this match was fairly even for most of the 90 minutes. The only real difference between the teams was the quality of the final ball which was the case for H&Y’s first goal as the ball was played between our centre half and keeper, allowing their striker to place the ball just inside the far post. The Dragons fought back with a series of attacks but the final ball always seemed to end up in the keeper’s arms. A second shortly after half time for H&Y forced the Dragons to chase the game and they conceded a further 3 as H&Y counter attacked.

The Dragons did end on a positive note, grabbing a late consolation goal.
