Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Boys-U11A vs  Holmewood House School
On: Wednesday, 10 Oct 2018
Venue: Away

The match against Holmewood is always a good indication of how the teams have developed over the season. It is always an uncompromising and tough contest. This one certainly lived up to the expectation. Saint Ronan's started well and Ed M, Orlando S and Ned T proved effective in attack. Ned was unlucky not to open the scoring with two blistering shots (one deflected from a corner and one well-saved). The defensive unit looked solid and Matthew G-R was once again alert on his line. making a few good saves. The second half was an evenly-balanced affair, with both teams struggling to convert small half chances. Quick thinking from Alex P released Ed M in a bit of space and he took on the defence with genuine intent. Good close dribbling skills saw him beat three players and, just when it looked like he had lost contro,l he managed to 'toe poke' a pass to Billy B-F, who slid in to score at the far post. Holmewood launched wave after wave of attacks but the nimble feet and quick decision making of Alex and Jack E at the back kept them out, for a superb 1 - 0 win. Man of the Match: Alex P
