U11 White v Cyncoed, Urdd Coach, Whitchurch Red
By Alwyn Lloyd
Finishing the season on a high
2-0 v Urdd Coch
4-1 v Bibs (scratch side)
6-1 v Cyncoed
It was 3 out of 3 on the last Saturday of the season.
The Whites gained revenge on Urdd Coch who had beaten an under-strength Maindy team two weeks previously. A well taken goal from Ben Elliott in open play and the second by Jamie straight from his corner. The second half was more even but the defence of Finners, Matt, Jacob & Buffers meant Urdd never looked like scoring.
The second match was against a composite side made up of players from the three teams, due to the absence of Whitchurch Red. It contained 4 Maindy players and was more of a training session. Finners was excellent in goals for the Bibs and Saul scored an excellent solo effort against his own team.
In the final game, Cyncoed were spent, as Maindy ran riot. The game only last 15 minutes due to an injury to an opponent, with Ted scoring a hatrick in 90 seconds with 3 unstoppable shots. Ben finished the game with a goal straight from a corner, the third such goal of the morning.
The pitch was bigger than the ones we've played on latterly and the goals bigger, helping us to score more. An email concerning the Merthyr tournament will be sent out shortly. It contains important information.
