U13s Sharks vs Littleborough Jnrs Stripes (A) - 26th Nov 2022
A game of 2 halves!
This morning the U13s Sharks played at home against Littleborough Stripes, who we previously lost 10-1 to just a couple of weeks ago.
It was a great start from the Sharks. We looked sharp and quick to attack. A superb strike from Jake to get the opener and a own goal put us 2 up.
The boys need to learn to try to protect the lead instead of going for more goals when we are in front as we left too many gaps at the back and allowed Littleborough to get 2 back.
We created many chances but didn't put them away, first half finished 2-2.
Second half we gave 3 easy goals away, effort dropped and we let Littleborough have the ball for too long. We need to press a lot quicker and win the ball early.
We got 2 goals back 1 for Adrian and 1 for Haryad, then conceeded another 2.
Game finished 4-7 loss. All in all a good performance & the scoreline does not show how the game was, we should have finished the game off in the first half.
Sharks played some really good football and are improving as a team each week. We keep training and keep playing to improve every week.
Players of the match was shared between Jamie Miller, Kaiden and Haryad.
Jamie played in goal this week and made some superb saves without these save the score line could have been very different, Kaiden was asked to play right back this week and did a very good job, and Haryad battled all game gave 100% effort and was rewarded with a goal. Well done Sharks.⚽️🦈
