U13s lose out in title decider

by Colin Evans

Coedpoeth can have no real complaints after being well in final league game of season, but the sense of disappointment was evident after coming so close after an excellent season.

 

Borras started strongly and injury hit Coedpoeth survived an early scare with Borras hitting the bar. Aaron Davies did well to ease the pressure running the ball 50 yards. Coedpoeth began competing well, Ollie coming out to clear and Coedpoeth putting pressure on ball in all areas of pitch.

Just as it was looking even though, Borras went ahead with an unstoppable shot from 25 yards. The league title was beginning to slip from sight as soon after Borras doubled the lead with another well taken goal.

To their credit Coedpoeth were still prepared to battle and started to put some good moves together. Recent signing Tom Williams went on a good run and Coedpoeth also had a goal disallowed for a foul on the keeper.

The referee was not picking up on some offside decisions and Borras again hit the crossbar. Leigh and Tom created another crossing opportunity but it was saved by Borras keeper.

The final nail came just before half time with what looked like a speculative cross dropping under the crossbar, and at 3-0 it seemed there would be no way back.

Coedpoeth were fortunate not to concede again in the second half, not clearing but Borras scuffing an easy chance. 

At the other end some persistence from Aled Edwards paid off to make it 3-1. Borras again hit bar though with some slack marking, and when Aled scored his second it looked as though Borras may rue their missed chances with an unlikely comeback now on the cards.

Briefly at 3-2 Borras looked worried with Coedpoeth forcing a couple of corner and battling well.

However Borras regained some composure at a time when Coedpoeth needed more urgency. Coedpoeth were getting lots of possession but in the wrong areas of the pitch.

In the last minutes of the season then, Borras went on to score two more to put the game beyond doubt.

Coedpoeth, although disappointed to have lost out having been top of the table for so much of the season, can take heart from taking it to the last game, and with a cup final to look forward to, can gain and learn from the experience to progress next season.
