SCR Colts Yellows U16 vs Eagles U16
The first half started and both teams played some good football, but not creating many chances for the first 15mins. The game then began to change Bedfont’s way, we started to win the game in midfield. Mason Greenfield played Gideon in twice, with great through balls which split their defence in half, but on both occasions their keeper stopped Gideon with two great saves. With all the play Bedfont had they couldn’t stick the ball into the back off their net. With a surprisingly long kick from Mitchell, the ball flew over the top of SCR defence for Sidney run onto in the box and hit it first time, but the SCR keeper made another great save, however it rebounded to Sidney Thompson who knocked it into an empty net.
0-1. Bedfont’s midfield was puting pressure on SCR’s midfield and defence, forcing them into making mistakes.Then finally Bedfont got their reward with Jake winning the ball back and playing it to Gideon, who then cut inside to play it to Ryan Bishton, Ryan then played it to Sidney who hit it first time only for the SCR keeper to palm his save straight into Mason Greenfield’s path for him to slot into an empty net. 0-2. Bedfont deserved to be winning, however, just before halftime Mitchell took a goal kick, which he would usually hit over the halfway line, but this time he hit it all wrong and the SCR striker ran onto it to make it a one on one against Mitchell, but as the striker went to hit it Mitchell pounced onto the ball to and made a great save to redeem himself and to keep the score at 0-2. Halftime.
The second half started the same way as the first half with Bedfont pushing forward and make SCR making mistakes. After about 10mins Bedfont broke with Mason, Jake and Bradley Vaughan making the final pass to Sidney, who was causing the SCR defenders all kinds of problems all game, as he ran onto the ball he was under pressure from the defender but managed to hold him off and when he got into the box he slotted it home pass their keeper great goal. 3-0. It looked great for Bedfont who were playing some good football all game. SCR couldn’t deal with Bedfont and it wasn’t long before the fourth came, and it was that man Sidney again, who scored again with a good combination play between himself, Gideon and Mason playing a ball over the top for Sidney to run onto and lob the goal keeper but it looked as though he didn’t hit it hard enough and it looked like the SCR defender was going to clear it, but by the time he got there the ball was over the line. 0-4. The game looked over and with only 15mins of the game left. Bedfont then lost Bradley Vaughan in midfield and we lost our shape and the game then started to change for SCR. Bedfont had stopped playing and letting SCR create chances and with 10mins left SCR scored with a great shot from the edge of the box into the top corner nothing Mitchell could do. That lifted SCR and they started to make Bedfont rush and make mistakes. SCR got a corner and Bedfont couldn’t get it away and they scored again, it was a scrappy goal. 4-2. SCR were lifted by this and they came at Bedfont again and pushed forward with a run down our wing and they got another corner, the ball came over again and Bedfont couldn’t get the ball away again and they scored another scrappy goal. 3-4. Lucky for Bedfont the final whistle was blown straight after ko. The positives were, Bedfont played some great football today as a team, but with all the hard work they put in they nearly threw it away, but in the end they didn’t and held on for a win which they deserved.
However, I hope they learnt a lesson today, it’s never over until it’s over.
Well done boys.
