Maindy v Pentwyn Dynamo (h)
By Daniel Masrani
Match Report of our U13 A league game v Pentwyn D (H)
Saturday Sept 19th:
Maindy Corries 3 - 2 Pentwyn D
The day started well, as at least this time @Blackweir the posts were up, the pitches were marked so it was game on.
It quickly went downhill though as I had to officiate 1 of our worst halves of football we have produced as a junior team, everything I've taught the boys over the years seemed to be missing for most of it.
Every unit of the team was malfunctioning as we managed to be outfought & outplayed by a team we'd comfortably beaten only a week ago.
Thankfully we managed to put together a good passage of play as 1st half came to a close & scored a lovely set piece corner, beautiful ball by Haben & our skipper for the day Owen Popz, making a lovely late run to score.
The hairdryer (not seen yet in 2015) had to come out of storage at half time & a heated team talk left the boys in doubt of what I expected from them in the 2nd half.
To be fair they then delivered a much better, disciplined performance with 2 late goals from Henry HW & Owen Williams against his old side (& 1 controversially denied) to give us a 3-2 win.
Well done in the end boys but I don't want to see a 1st half like that again this season!!
Thanks again for your vocal support & encouragement of the boys.
