U15 Eagles

Eagles back in action with a thumping home win

Kensington Dragons U14 Eagles 11 – 0 FC Kodak

After another lost weekend we returned to a crisp St Mark’s to find the pitch looking as good as it has all season. Bad news for our opponents, promising for those who bolted their Sunday lunch hoping for a feast of February football.

Our boys did not disappoint with Kodak simply overwhelmed by our movement, our spirit and our imagination. It took a while for us to warm up but after the first goal went in on 18 minutes these Dragons were breathing fire (and no wonder the falling snow, failing to settle, gave up and puffed off westwards).

Plucky Kodak were left exposed in all areas as six separate Eagles found the net including one of our indefatigable centre backs whose rasping penalty-box drive proved less of a goal than an industrial stress-test for RBKC’s fresh nets. But amid the feints and twists, the flicks and dribbles, what really caught the eye was the graft, the teamwork, the relentless application until the final whistle, somewhat sadly for us bewitched bystanders, blew.
