was going to pan out).

out for a corner. Harry makes the corner count and a ball to Owen, then Jake, then a throw in. Sees

connect from throw ins, but an interception sees a clearance from Zac. Jacob makes a save and a
pass to Zac sees a throw in from Jake and a follow up throw in from Zac to Harry and a quick turn
sees an impressive run from Harry, followed by a debatable 2nd hand ball of the game from Sedley.

Owen steps up and makes a great clearance from the box just before half time.

Second Half

The unluckiest second half is about to begin with a team of Tommy, Cohen, Jacob, Zac and Harry.

ball down the line resulting in a corner ball for Harry and a follow up throw in for Zac. – No luck or

Harry’s turn now, Harry takes the ball from the centre spot and a turn sees him keep possession and
more important excellent control and skill, a short run and a save.

Corner for Cohen sees a move for Tommy who retreats and turns and again just wide.

Another Cohen from Cohen sees Zac up the line, a short move forward sees Zac hits the post,
returned for Tommy to hit the post and returned for Cohen for the save. Very tense moment and
very unlucky.

Tommy was quick to defend play and a throw in from Tommy sees a play to Cohen, ambitious run
and possession gained, great control and another unlucky wide.

And it goes on and on Harry wide, Tommy forced out wide, Harry/Cohen Wide, Cohen, Zac, Tommy

Unlucky game boys, but to be 2nd in the group shows how far you have come. – Well done boys.
