Soccer - U9 A vs OBH
Holmwood first match of the term was an away fixture against OBH. Holmwood had worked a lot on on their team shape in training and this was evident in the opening minutes of the match. Holmwwod soon took the lead and continued to dominate possession. The boys all played in several positions, this allows individuals to experience playing in different areas of the pitch. A very positive first match. Well done boys.
The Under 9 Bs played their first game against OBH. After a slow start Holmwood found their feet. Fen J made some good saves in goal but OBH were the first to score. Jake B was in fine form tackling well in defence. The second half started much better for Holmwood with DJ M scoring the Holmwood equaliser to make it 1-1 as the game was coming to a close. Noah K was causing problems for OBH on the right side, giving Edward L-D plenty of chances to score the winner but one minute from time OBH broke though to score. Final score 2-1 to OBH. Well played boys! A good effort for your first game.
