Soccer U11 A vs Colchester High School
Holmwood's second match of the term would be a good barometer to judge the teams overall improvement throughout the term. The first half was a close affair, Holmwood defended well and Patch A was relatively uncalled upon in the Holmwood goal. Holmwood took the lead after a defence splitting pass from Henry D was finished first time by Harry O who was returning from injury. Colchester High looked most dangerous when putting corner into the box and Holmwood reluctance to head the ball resulted in Colchester High's equaliser.
Half time Holmwood 1-1 Colchester High
The second half again saw Holmwood dominate. Edward S worked his socks off and looked particularly threatening on the right. Sam F and William T were their solid and dependable selves in defence. Holwood took the lead again after another fine through ball from Henry D was again finished first time by Harry O. He could have completed his hat - trick but for a fine save from the Colchester High Keeper.
A fantastic performance. Well done, boys.

Holmwood played a very even game against Colchester High creating many chances throughout the match.
