Bicester Colts v Brackley Town (u12) 29/9/18
In what was a lively fixture, the u12s were able to get a 2nd win in a row by beating Bicester Colts, as they continue to climb the league table. Goals from Kyle, Jack and Ben Shergold gave the u12s enough to clinch a 4-3 win. It was another decent performance again from the players as they pushed themselves to the max in order for them to control the tempo of the match.
Very early on the colts took the lead from a corner after Louis made a very good first save, though it fell straight to a Bicester player who was too close to miss. After this small hiccup at the back, the players showed great dedication and courage as they went 2-1 up with Kyle getting both goals with his first set up by Ben Mcdevitt and the second getting assisted by the post after a shot from Jack. Unfortunately just before the end of the first half the Colts were able to find an equalizer, which made the result 2-2 at half time. Regardless of the result we were the most dominant side, and had the drive and belief to get the win.
Similar to the first half Bicester were able to make it 3-2 after a good pass enabled the striker to take the ball around Louis to put us on the back foot. Even though the boys didn't respond as quick as they did in the first half to going behind they continued to keep possession, move the ball forward by both passing and dribbling with Mikey completing 7 successful dribbles. Chester and Luke were very important in winning the ball back with Chester intercepting the ball 9 times and Luke having the same amount of tackles. Eventually we put that possession into good use with Ben Shergold levelling the scores at 3-3 with an assist from Kyle allowed Ben to add to his goal scoring tally.
Now after working very hard to get the equalizer the boys continued to control the game and dominate possession until Jack was played in by a beautiful through ball by Luke allowing Jack to fire it home with a terrific finish in the bottom left hand corner giving the keeper no chance.
