Under 9s vs Motspur Park – 18.12.16
Merton 4 Motspur Park 3
Another lovely morning at the hood saw the under 9s take on Motspur park in a very exciting match.
Motspur park took the lead with the last kick of the first quarter, 2nd quarter we took control played some great football and came out 3-1 up into halftime and looked to be cruising.
However the squad was promised equal playtime and the wholesale changes undoubtedly assisted in us losing a grip on the game.
4-2 going into the last quarter, Pinned in our own half, shot after shot hitting our make shift goalkeeper josh, they score 1 more and it’s please blow the whistle time ref!!!!
The fight, spirit and determination never to give in from our boys was admirable and the whistle goes with Merton 4-3 winners.
Man of the match this week was tricky, everyone played an important role non less then josh who made saves im not sure he knew much about, fantastic!, but it was given to Danielus who played with great passion and determination.
Under 9s in our first season have now played 10 winning 8 with 2 losses.
