Soccer - U9 A, B & C VIIs vs St Margaret's (H)

U9A Match

Holmwood’s penultimate home game of the term was against St Margaret’s. Holmwood faced them three days earlier in the Littlegarth Tournament and beat them 1-0 in a close encounter. Holmwood struggled to break down the well-organised and hardworking St Margaret’s. It was a mistake from the St Margaret’s keeper that gifted Ned N the opener.  He went on to complete another hat trick and Harry O’s impressive goal scoring form continued as he bagged himself another two goals.  The defence of Henry D and Alex B again stood firm and the hard work of Ralph B, James P and Sam F was very noticeable through out the game.

Final Score: Holmwood 5  - 1 St Margaret’s

U9C Match

A really unlucky result where Holmwood had about ten shots at goal but could not quite score. Josh R was excellent in goal and fought hard for the ball. Ed G and Josiah C both defended extremely well and allowed the opposition to attach the Holmwood goal five times during the game. Damon B, Fergus S and Owen J ran their socks off throughout the game in their mid-field positions and each had chances at goal. Harry P had a storming performance narrowly missing the goal on five separate occasions and creating numerous chances when he played his correct position as striker. Very unlucky but a thoroughly exciting match - well done!

Final Result: Holmwood 0 - 1 St Margaret's
