U14s White - Match Report

Lacklustre Performance But Good Result.

(Colin Walton 09/10/2017)

4    Congleton Rovers JFC U14s White
2    Northwich Victoria Juniors Villa U14s

(Match Date: Sunday 8th October 2017)
Missing two of the teams regular back four meant changes had to be made. Dan moved to left back and Macca moved to centre back. Lewis came back in on the left wing and Jack came into midfield.

The changes seemed to have an affect on Rovers and they didn't play their normal game. Passing and control where lacking and Villa took advantage of this and opened the scoring. Rovers continued to falter and make bad choices which were not punished. Rovers reached half time level when a mistake by Villa saw the ball bounce off a defender and into the goal.

Changes were made at half time Ben S came on for Jack and Jimi replaced Charlie. Rovers improved in the second half and took the lead when Finn scored from Sam's pass, 2-1. The same two players combined again for Finn's second 3-1. Villa came back into the game with a lobbed ball looping over Jake's head 3-2. Finn scored a hat trick for the fourth successive competitive game to finish the scoring 4-2.

This was the type of game that Rovers would have drawn or even lost last season. The lads are showing a lot more spirit and togetherness this time around and got the result in the end.

Good Result
