The signs of success are shining through! – Girls Wyrley Pumas under 10’s Sat 5th Nov 2011

The long awaited 3rd game of the season was here and the Wyrley Puma’s under
10’s girls made the extra training sessions shine through on the pitch.
There really was nothing between the 2 sides throughout the whole game,
other than a couple of fine finishes from the panthers forwards. The puma’s
girls a year younger and smaller than their opposition did not show through
in performance, every individual on the pitch pulled together to produce a
fine team performance, Libby Thornly immense again between the posts for the
pumas a really confident and composed performance, with first class saves
and even better distribution to her team mates. Maise Smith, Olivia Babb and
captain Danny Machen played with resilience and no fear at the back their
excellent positional play and distribution made it extremely difficult for
the opposition to break down. Going forward the Pumas are starting to look
dangerous, the panthers opposition simply couldn’t deal with the excellence
of Sophie Willis and man of the Match Chloe Birch who are without doubt 2 of
the best players currently in this league. The pumas went 2 goals behind,
before pulling one back through Sophie Willis slotting home a fine move
started from defence to attack, having stuck the post a couple of times the
pumas really had the panthers on the rack, had the Pumas converted their 2nd
half penalty the score line may have ended up very different, never the less
a fantastic improvement from all the players and the final score 3-1 to the
panthers was certainly not an easy win for them, and as we move through the
season I can see the younger pumas continuing to close the gap to their
older, bigger and stronger opposition. The pumas should all be very proud of
the performance on Saturday, from Goal keeper to substitutes they all
deserve great credit for the improvements they have made – Well done team.
