Lowdham U12 Blue against Bulwell Athletic Yellow (Away) Final Score 3 – 0 to Lowdham
A miserable Saturday morning saw us at the Mellish Sports Centre in Bulwell.
Captain this week was sweeper keeper Chester with Seb making his debut for the blue crew.
The boys were put through their paces with a 40 minute warm up before the game with Tom R looking like he’d played a game of rugby before he’d even started (top on its 3rd wash already)
A minutes silence was observed by all before kick off.
In the 1st half our boys started strong with some great passing from James, Jake and Alfie for Dylan to have a couple of shots on goal but this wasn’t meant to be. This didn’t deter them and they continued to battle with some great footwork from Joe, Jamie and Rhys up the wing to set up a few more shots on goal for our boys. Another near miss on goal for Jake with a shot just over the top of the net. Bulwell were fighting back and were putting in some great tackles with some great passing up the wing. Great defending from Tom R and Seb to keep the pressure on. Some great saves from Chester kept the score 0 – 0 at halftime.
In the 2nd half, the boys continued to battle with Rhys and Alfie setting up another shot on goal with an unlucky header for Dylan. Some more great defending with Seb getting stuck in to get the ball away. Bulwell fought back and Joe W took the ball up the wing with a pass to Alfie to give us an unlucky shot on goal. Some great corners from Jake and James into the box with Bulwell defending well. Billy keeping Bulwell at bay with Dylan passing to Rhys with a near shot on goal. Our first goal was a corker header from Dylan to put us in the lead. Chester made some great saves to keep the goals from Bulwell at bay. More great corners from James to put the ball in the box just where we needed it to be. Our second goal from Dylan put us 2 nil up. With 4 minutes to go our 3rd and final goal was a header from Joe W.
Another great game of footy played by all 🙂
