Chilly yet still conditions met the U13B’s in their match against Loretto. We played 7 a-side, with 6 outfield players and a keeper. We chose a 2-3-1 formation and tried to play down the flanks. This tactic worked relatively well to begin with and we pressed hard into the Loretto D. The Loretto keeper made at least 4 fantastic saves in the opening 10 minutes, which really kept his team in the game. Under relentless pressure, however, the goals eventually came with Chay, Felix and Ewan each hungry for goals and putting themselves in a good position to score. It was 3-0 at half time. In the second half, the game opened up a bit and we were able to find more gaps in the Loretto defence as we seemed to have a better level of fitness. Oliver and James H controlled the game brilliantly from the back and intercepted a number of promising attacks with some well-timed and positioned tackles. Artie and Thabo were very effective when involved too. In the end we managed to score a few more goals and the final score was 9-1. Well played boys.
