Soccer - U9 A VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

Holmwood’s third match of the term was against Colchester High.  Holmwood started slowly but soon found their feet.  Harry O was spreading the play well from centre midfield.  Ned N worked tirelessly upfront and Ralph BS and Sam F (making his A team debut) kept their width well when attacking.  Alex B and James P looked to pass the ball from the back whenever they could. Patrick A’s distribution was accurate and helped set up several Holmwood attacks.  Holmwood took the lead after the Colchester High keeper dropped a Ned N corner into his own net.  Half-time: Holmwood 1 - 0 Colchester High.

The second half was again dominated by Holmwood.  Harry O’s passing was a pleasure to watch.  Sam F was excellent in attack and provided Ned N with several accurate through balls.  Ned N scored his second of the match after latching on to a Harry O pass. It was Harry O who completed the scoring with a low shot into the corner of the net.

A much improved performance.  Well done boys.

Result:  Holmwood 3 - 0 Colchester High

Soccer - U9 B VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

Holmwood's third game this term (and second this week!) was against Colchester High School. Missing Sam F to the A team the Bs had Gus A to replace him.  The game got off to a great start as within 3 minutes Christopher T scored the opening goal. Rufus C played very well in the centre midfield setting up Christopher T enabling him to score his second goal.  Defenders William W and William T were very solid at the back.  Fergus S made some great saves, including a one-on-one.  2-0 to Holmwood at half-time.

There were no changes to the team at half-time and Holmwood came out passing and tackling in the same fashion as the first half.  Three more goals came Holmwood's way to finish a great game.  Well played boys - another win!

Result:  Holmwood 5 - 0 Colchester High

Soccer - U9 C VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 1 October 2014

Damon tried hard in goal and kept smiling throughout.  Ed G and Josiah C defended well and tackled effectively.  Owen and Harry P played well and held their positions with enthusiasm.  Hector was incredibly good at tackling - two of his sliding tackles were excellent and he put in a huge effort for most of the game, despite the 7-0 defeat.  Well played!

Result:  Holmwood 0 - 7 Colchester High
