St. Joseph’s B 2 v 4 Kensington Dragons U11s

Following three months of no games, the Dragons returned to winning ways with a 4-2 away victory at St. Joseph’s B.
The Dragons took an early two goal lead, as Ollie raced through, showing great composure in his finishes. The opportunity to kill the game in the first half arose, but Dragons took a 2-1 lead in at half time, after squandering a few guilt-edged chances, before conceding a scrappy goal as the Dragons failed to clear their lines.

Starting brightly in the second half, the two goal cushion was restored as Ollie completed yet another hat-trick with a blistering shot into the top corner. However, the Dragons conceded yet another sloppy goal- the first time they have conceded more than once in a league game to set up a tense finale.

Ten minutes from time, after the Dragons again had missed opportunities to score, Ollie squared the ball for Sam to tap into an empty net (showing his team mates how it’s done!).

Considering they have trained twice since Christmas, this was a satisfying three points.
