Football U11 A VIIs vs Brentwood Prep
Holmwood travelled south to play a Friday afternoon fixture against Brentwood.
Holmwood started slowly on the a wet and boggy pitch and soon found themselves a couple of goals down. L Cairns and A Mackee pulled two goals back but at halftime the score was 4-2 to Brentwood. The second half was a struggle and even the endless energy for E Slater and J Swaine was not enough to keep the Brentwood midfield and attackers at bay. Holmwood scored a third through E Slater and fourth via an own goal.
Final Score - Holmwood 4 Brentwood 10
Football U11 B VIIs vs Brentwood Prep
James B deflected a header past Oscar S to give Brentwood the lead at half time. Holmwood started the second half brightly and were unfortunate not to equalise. Brentwood however continued to create chances and scored two late goals to give a scoreline that flattered them. All the Holmwood team battled hard and showed much endeavour. Harry R-L shone at the back but all can be very pleased with their contribution to an excellent game.
Final Score - Holmwood 1 Brentwood 4
This afternoon was always going to be hard work. But the boys showed great resilience to score two goals late in the second half. Well played boys.
