Soccer - U9 A VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 15 October 2014

Holmwood dominated the first half.  Ned N scored another two goals, Harry O lofted one over the keeper from range. Alex B, playing in right midfield, scored from a tight angle. Henry was outstanding in defence, notably for his passing as was Harry O in centre midfield.  Holmwood led 4-0 at the half-time whistle.

Positions were changed around in the second half.  Patch A was put into attack and Ned N and Harry O shared the keeping duties.  After his spell in goal, Ned N completed his hat-trick.  Alex B and Harry O both scored second goals.  Colchester enjoyed more possession during the second period and Harry O, especially, was called into action between the sticks to make a couple of goal saves.  Well done boys, an excellent first half term of football!

Result  Holmwood 7 - 0 Colchester High

Soccer - U9 B VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 15 October 2014

Holmwood's U9 Bs played their second game this week.  They very unlucky as, after Colchester scored, they did not enter Holmwood's half again.   A gusty performance from William T with good tackles and some great passing.

A different team shape for the boys to understand but, in the second half, they managed very well.  They produced some fantastic passing out from defence to midfield but just lacked the final finish.  Well played boys and thank you to Sam and Ralph BS for stepping down from the As to help out with missing players.  A good end to the first half of the term's football.

Result  Holmwood 0 - 1 Colchester High

Soccer - U9 C VII vs Colchester High School (H), Wednesday 15 October 2014

Holmwood were down to 5 players but had a great match against 7!  Henry P was captain and striker for the game.  He tried exceptionally hard, tackling and dribbling impressively.  Louis L scored twice and took Holmwood to a lead in the second half to win the match.

Damon B and Josiah C both worked hard and played their positions well.  Fergus S was great in goal and tried hard kicking the ball into space upfield.  Well done on your first win!

Result  Holmwood 2 - 1 Colchester High
