Soccer - U9 A vs Littlegarth
Holmwood's third match of term was against a strong Littlegarth team. Holmwood started well and looked to put the passing moves together that we had worked on in training. Holmwood battled well with Tom B and Rafe C putting some determined tackles and George H covering every inch of the pitch. When Archie L and Eddie F could not block the littlegath shots Gus Sprott was there to make several fine saves. Luca C and Henry W worked hard to close down the Littlegarth defenders but were limited to only a few oppertunities.
Half time Holmwood 0-0 Littlegarth
The second half followed a similar pattern to the first with Littlegarth having slightly more of the ball but Holmwood defending and tackling resolutely. However, it was Holmwood who took the lead with 10 minutes remaining. The ball broke on the left hand side of the area and Rafe C smashed the ball across the keeper into the far top corner. Holmwood continued to defend well but could not quite manage to hang on to the lead with Littlegarth equalising in the second from last minute.
Well done boys on a fantastically hard working performance which was enjoy by all who watched.
Final Score Holmwood 1-1 Littlegarth
