Fellow Wintry Dragons
With Storm Gareth battering our pitches:
The Firsts had no match
The Reserves drew 3-3 with LNER. This was a scrappy first half from the Dragons who conceded a cheap penalty then conceded again from poor communication between their defence and keeper. The second half saw a much better performance from the Dragons who managed, despite the strong wind, to go ahead 3-2, only for LNER to equalise from a defensive blunder. The Dragons could have won at the end when their veteran striker found himself 1 on 1 with LNER’s keeper but was not able to convert!
The U16 Reds beat MDD 3 – 2 at home in the Trophy Cup. The Dragons went into their second cup game against a team they had previously beaten. The Dragons started slowly and conceded early before scoring two goals in quick succession to go into the lead at half time. The second half was a battle up-hill in the wind for the Dragons as they again conceded early before immediately replying. The Dragons then dug in and saw out the game to win 3-2, with their goalie saving a penalty.
The U16 Whites just lost 3-4 at home in the Trophy Cup against Brook House in an exciting, but ultimately frustrating match.
The U15s lost away to Ickenham away in the Trophy Cup
The U14s were awarded a walk over in the Trophy Cup as Ickenham defaulted
The U13 boys beat Brentham 7-2 away in the Trophy Cup. The Dragons could have been 5 – 0 up at half time but had only put in 2 goals. They then lost focus to let in 2 gaols and be tied with 20 mins left! Urgent action was needed. The Dragons regained their form and put in 5 quick goals in a 15 min rush. Another good win in the mud!
The U13 Girls no match
The U12s had no match
The U11 Boys were awarded a walk over as LPOSSA could not raise a team
The U11s Girls beat Victoria Park Rangers 5-1 away. The Dragons got off to a slow start, allowing Victoria Park to dominate, but as the game progressed they began taking back control and were soon rewarded with their first goal. This drove the Dragons on and made them even more determined to win. Another great performance and result.
The U10s trained in preparation for joining the League next season
