In this week's league cup game the U11 Colts faced a tough trip away to top of the group, blandford had won both of their previous games 5-1 and 6-0 so we knew it would be difficult. Broadstone started brilliantly restricting Blandford to very few chances and keeping the ball well ourselves. However as the first half went on Blandford grew into the game and began putting us under a lot of pressure which led to Blandford's first goal, after playing a clever through ball they finished nicely across the keeper, the ball going in off of the post. For the remaining 15 minutes of the half man of the match George made some incredible saves to keep the score at 1-0, unfortunately for us his opposite was also having a brilliant game and made an excellent save to deny Kieran towards the end of the half.
In the second half Broadstone pushed for an equaliser and Blandford began to find the gaps we were leaving. George made more excellent saves but there was nothing that could be done about Blandford's second goal, some slick passing and a superb finish into the top corner. As Broadstone put more efforts into the attack with time running out, Blandford found the net twice more with another 2 good finishes.
The Colt's effort and determination even when chasing the game was great to see and will serve us well going forward.
