Under 10 Blue 2 West Bridgford Jets 2
The game started with the most perfect mascot going, super Kian led us out through a guard of honour that was full of both teams
Bryn (2) POM : Mason
I can’t thank Jets enough for joining in and making it a special birthday for Kian.
There was literally nothing that could split these 2 sides apart, the game went end to end and both sides gave it their all and played the right way. Leo puts a great corner in and Logan gets to it but his header goes over.
After applying early pressure we get caught out from a nice move by Jets which resulted in a corner. After some passing the ball finds itself nestling in the back of the net and Jets lead 1-0 after 7mins. We go back at them from the kick off and from some great work by Izak he puts Bryn in who at the second attempt levels the score on 8mins.
Not long later and we are in the lead. Again Izak shows some great skill and slips Bryn through who shows great strength and absolutely fires the ball into the far corner and we go 2-1 up on 12mins. Jets never give up though and after their player does well to win the ball back just inside our half, he goes on a 10-15 yard run unchallenged and fires a low hard shot at goal. The balls bounces off Kian and into the net and the score is Desmond.
Second half and although no more goals go in both sides turn it up a notch.
Megan shows great strength and links up perfectly with Matty with a 1-2 and is unlucky to not get a shot away.
Mikkael gets right into it and whips in a few great corners that we just cant capitalise on.Mason absolutely dominates the midfield and has his best game ever.
It was great seeing Dec back out there after a few months out with illness and injury and his engine hasn’t lost its workrate at all! Jets push up but Conner and Logan stand strong despite some great play by Jets. Bryn causes trouble at the back for Jets and is unlucky not to get a hat trick on a few occasions. The first 1 he takes too long to shoot and some good last ditch defending means his shot is blocked. The second chance he takes his shot a little early and it flies just wide.
Mason is all over the pitch doing the doggy work as well as making some great runs with the ball. Euan drops into the midfield to give the POM Mason a well deserved breather and is all over the place. He takes over superbly. I got frustrated towards the end as we was doing everything the correct way but it just wouldn’t come off for us... which is due to the hard word from Jets. It was a positive fustration lol.
If I had to give the players any ratings it would be no lower than 10/10!
Kian - Goal kicks have improved 10 fold.
Euan - Strong throughout.
Conner - Did the simple things well.
Mason - POM. Outstanding. Improving every week and just dominated the game.
Logan - Shown agility and got about really well.
Mikkael - Corners were superb as always.
Dec - Good to be back. Worked hard.
Leo - Gave it everything and saw what was going to happen and cut it out before it had chance to grow.
Bryn - Another brace and solid performance.
Megan - Link up play and passing was top class.
Matty - Ran his socks off and quite possibly his best game this season too. Running with the ball and work rate was out this world.
Izak - Gave us an option every time and got 2 assists. Really has come on with his positioning.
Well done to everyone today and a special thank you again to Jets.
All the best for the season Jets and judging by both teams performances that if both sides can keep that up then surely both will be in the mix come the end of the campaign.
