Under 15s vs Croygas – 11.12.16
Croygas 2-2 Merton
Building on from last weeks hard fought win, Merton moved into this fixture against the team currently second.
The new found confidence was clear to see and the new formation was having a positive impact on the team. We have finally found a formation that works with this group of players!
We started the game off in positive fashion, keeping the ball well but also keeping solid at the back. We took the lead through a well taken goal from Bradley, with some neat build up play in the lead up to the finish.
We remained solid and kept it tight, Croygas having minimal chances on goal. They took their only shot on target to equalise just before half time.
The confidence didn’t dip and we started the second half just as strong as we finished the first. A sloppy goal to concede following a mix up in our backline gifted Croygas the lead. And they began to grow in confidence. However we stood firm.
A short corner fell to Marcin on the edge of the box who drilled it in the far corner to equalise. A deserved equaliser.
Despite constant reminders from the opposition players ‘they are 7th, lets put them in their place’ we kept on pushing for the winner. Which nearly came from a free kick from Marcin.
Well done boys – challenge is to remain unbeaten throughout December!
