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