SUYA U13s THROUGH TO THE FINAL!!! AFTER BEATING SKEM ATHLETIC U14S IN A 5 v 1 VICTORY

Skelmersdale united u13s v skem athletic u14s semi-final cup match

THIS SEMI FINAL GAME TODAY WAS ALWAYS GOING TO BE TOUGH AGAINST A DETERMINED SKEM ATHLETIC U14S TEAM AS LAST TIME ROUND WE WERE BEATEN IN THE LEAGUE 5 v 4 WITH An END TO END GAME, THIS TIME ROUND SKEM UTD ONLY HAD THE BARE ELEVEN PLAYERS AND THE STAND IN MANAGER {WHO WAS SHORTER THAN AT LEAST 8 OF THERE PLAYERS} AND ADDING THE SAME ELEVEN PLAYERS PLAYED A COMPETITIVE MATCH THE DAY BEFORE, SO I’VE GOT TO SAY THERE FITNESS IS 100 PERCENT, WHEN CARL HAS YOU RUNNING AND WARMING UP 30 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR TRAINING TIME STARTS, IT SHOWS THAT IT HAS PAID OFF FOR YOU TODAY AS EVERY PLAYER NEVER STOPPED RUNNING AND WORKING HARD FOR THE TEAM TO THE END. AND WHEN SKEM ATHLETIC GOT TIRED, WE NEVER, WHICH MADE IT A MORE COMFORTABLE SCORE LINE IN THE END AND GOT YOU TO THE FIRST OF THE FINALS WELL DONE


THIS GAME STARTED WITH UNITED COVERING ALL THE ANGLES FROM THE LAST GAME AGAINST SKEM ATHLETIC, MOST IMPORTANT WAS NOT TO GIVE ANY FREE KICKS AWAY IN OUR HALF. AS LAST TIME THEY SCORED 3 GOALS FROM FREE KICKS, ITS NOT THE KEEPERS FAULT, AS THE GOALS ARE FULL SIZE {ADULTS} AND U13S ARE STILL JUNIORS THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO BUT WATCH THE BALL SAIL IN TO THE TOP CORNERS OF THE NET, SO THIS TIME WE DECIDED TO TRY NOT GIVE ANY FREE KICKS AWAY.SKEM UTD FLEW OUT OF THE TRAPS AND AFTER 5 MINUTES TOOK THE LEAD WITH A WELL WORKED GOAL THAT WAS FINISHED OFF BY BRADLEY.SKEM ATHLETIC STARTED TO PUT PRESSURE ON UNITED, BUT WITH SOME SUPER DEFENDING FROM JOEL, NICKI ,ALEX ,JOBO ,JAMES AND TOBY WE KEPT THEM AT BAY, AND THEN THE MOMENT I DREADED A FREE KICK FROM 30 YARDS OUT FOR ATHLETIC, AND AGAIN IT HITTING THE ROOF OF THE NET GIVING OUR KEEPER NO CHANCES 1 v 1.


SECOND HALF STARTED MUCH TO THE SAME AS THE FIRST HALF WITH BOTH TEAMS ATTACKING AND THEN STRAIGHT ON THE BACK FOOT DEFENDING. THEREFORE, I SUPPOSE IT WAS GOING TO BE DOWN TO WHO FINISHES THERE CHANCES, WHO DEFENDS AS A TEAM, AND MOST OFF ALL THERE FITNESS. AND AS THE GAME WENT ON SKEM UTDS DEFENCE WASN’T GIVING ANYTHING AWAY,UNITEDS MIDFIELD JORDAN ,MICHAEL,OLLY,BYRON AND BRADLEY WAS CONSTANTLY PRODDING AT ATHLETICS DEFENCE, SO SOMETHING HAD TO GIVE, AND DID WHEN JORDAN SCORED FROM An ACUTE ANGEL TO MAKE IT 2 v 1. AS THE GAME WENT ON WE NOTICED ATHLETIC STARTED TO GET TIRED SO MORE PRESSURE FROM THE LADS WHEN WE DIDNT HAVE THE BALL WAS AFFECTIVE. AND WITH THAT THE THIRD GOAL CAME COURTESY OF JORDAN,SKEM UNITED WAS ON A ROLL NOW AND SOON SCORED THERE 4TH FROM BRADLEY AGAIN WITH ANOTHER COOL FINISH, THE FIFTH AND FINAL GOAL OF THE GAME WAS FROM JORDAN TO CAP A FINE PERFORMANCE AND A HAT TRICK, REFFS MOM WAS JORDAN . BUT ALL 11 PAYERS WAS MY MOM AS THERE FITNESS, TEAM SPIRIT, TEAM WORK AND DETERMINATION WAS 100% TODAY WELL DONE
