Match Report
Saint Ronan's School Boys-U9C vs  Hilden Grange School
On: Thursday, 11 Oct 2018
Venue: at Home

The U9 Navy team sailed into battle - as a 7 again this week - and closed out a victory 2-1 against Hilden Grange. Alex G was the scorer of both goals and came close to his hat-trick. Hilden Grange had the better of the play when they could get their foot on the ball and look up. We must aim to gain control of the ball and our instinct to boot it forward. Isaac P did this very well but often found the ball was pinged straight back at him! Where we had the edge was in our energy in chasing down and winning the ball in the 50-50 challenges. Good keeping from both Justin and Tom was required to keep us in the game but it was great to close out the victory. There was the usual array of incident - Zach being knocked to the floor and finding his own player booting the ball into his head, which caused him to hop around a great deal, and a most unfortunate Hilden Grange player who, after 27 minutes of playing in goal, could not resist picking the ball up when turned into a defender.
