Hertfordshire County Challenge Cup U13 – West Herts Youth U13 Buck 2 vs Scholars 1
Scholars not at the races
Unfortunately the Scholars good run from the start of the season was ended with a 2-1 loss in the County Cup to West Herts Bucks, and could have been a heavier defeat if it wasn't for the post on two other occasions. The Scholars never really got out of the blocks, and were undone by a looping shot and not clearing their lines on another. It must be also said that they were beaten by a team that never stopped working for each other, which is a mirror of how our Scholars have played in all previous games this season. Well done to the Bucks
There were not many notable performances, however, for consistency through the whole game, both Matt/Lambo done well, along with battling Josh who notched a very good goal, and not forgetting the man of the match Nathan who played well up top, and just as good at the back reading the game like master of his trade.
The mark of a good team is how they react to a defeat, by working hard in training and raising the bar again for the forthcoming league fixtures. Our Scholars will need to learn and bounce back. Onward to next week vs Letchworth which will be another tough game and should include their lethal weapon!
Special thanks again to all the travelling parents, especially our contingent from Bishops Stortford that did a 90 mile round trip - Thank you for all your dedication and support
