Wyrley Panthers U7s Match Report 6.11.11

Another proud day for the Panthers coaches and parents after two brave, spirited displays against one very good team and one extremely good player.

Wyrley Panthers v Colron FC

In the first 3-5 minutes the Panthers looked like they were still in bed and went down to an early goal following pressure from Colron. The game continued to go Colron’s way, but to their credit the Panthers battled for every ball and never let their heads drop having conceded the early goal. Following a sustained bit of pressure in the Colron half the ball came out to the edge of the box, literally waking Lucas Tibbs up, and he lashed it in the net from long-range giving the goalkeeper no chance. From then on Lucas Tibbs played superbly well along with every other member of the team against a so far unbeaten Colron team. The boys continued to battle for every ball, throwing themselves in front of shots and bravely pushing Colron back.

In the second half, the Panthers took a stranglehold on the game, with the midfield really beginning to press and hurry their opponents, the Colron team could not settle into any rhythm. This pressure culminated in the Panthers taking a deserved lead through that man Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper. For the rest of the game Colron huffed and puffed but the Panthers bravely held on with brilliant defending all over the pitch and the team still looked more likely to score on the break.

Wyrley Panthers v Brownhills Community Colts

Although the coaches made several changes to the team that beat Colron there was no difference in the commitment and bravery shown by those coming into the team in this game. The Panthers played some lovely football, looked solid at the back, and always looked dangerous going forward with Ben Maginness excellent in midfield despite some over zealous tackling from one of the Colts players in particular. The team effort from the Panthers was noted by all watching against a side that contained one excellent individual who scored the only goal of the game with none of his teammates touching the ball. Despite going a goal down the Panthers pressed and dominated the possession, had some excellent chances but could not get on the score sheet despite Rio Parkes-Mahoney hitting the bar late in the game (there are going to be some celebrations when that boy scores his first goal).

Well done to the whole squad. It is so good to see the team spirit that the boys have and that when they are under pressure they all stick together and pull through and we can only hope this continues throughout the season and beyond as the coaches are proud to say they coach this set of lads.

Squad on Sunday consisted of: Lewis Rochelle, Josh Mason, George Whitehouse, Lucas Tibbs, Ben Herrington, Sam Scott, Ben Maginness, Louis Beasley, Josh Reynolds, Rio Parkes-Mahoney and Ashton Cooper.
