The Colts Soccer squad continued their run of good form, with two impressive performances against Great Houghton. Despite the threat of wind and rain, the matches were played in good conditions. The grass pitch was muddy, but it did not stop both the A and B teams playing their passing game and dominating the opposition.
In the first game the A IX (seen above after the final whistle) won 8-2. The goals came from : Patrick 3, Archie Go 2, Kian 2 and Fin.
Man of the Match was Archie Gi and the Champagne Moment came from Archie Go, scoring his second goal with a super long range shot. The Great Houghton coach commented on how well Dom and Fin played, but it was also a fine team effort and everyone contributed to the result.
In the second game our B team consisted of : Alfie (captain), Matthew, Ed, Will H, Bertie, Hugo, Jamie, Jack and Oli, with substitutes Will R and Caspian.
We dominated this match even more and scored ten goals, without reply. Ed scored four, Matthew three, Bertie two and Jack one. Man of the match went to Ed for his superb second half performance. He used all his turning and dribbling skills to great effect, scoring four goals in a row. Champagne Moment went to Jack for his composure when under pressure as the last man in the defence. Once again this was a true team performance.
We are very lucky to have such strength in depth in the squad this year. However, we will face a strong challenge next week, when all thirty five Colts travel away to Wellingborough to play five matches.
