Wyrley Panthers U9’s Match Report 6.10.13

Wyrley Panthers v Tipton Youth League Match

Another ‘hard-fought’ game against this opposition with some fierce tackling on show. In the first half the Panthers trailed 2-0 following an unlucky deflection and a harsh penalty decision against George Whitehouse for handball when he protected his face with his hands.

However, just when it seemed the Panthers Championship hopes were going to be dashed, they rallied back in true Panthers style. In the second half they showed tenacity, resilience and skill to get themselves back in the game by playing their way out of trouble.

Great forward play from Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper, who was receiving close attention from the Tipton defence, lead to goals from Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott and Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington.

Goals then managed to get himself on the scoresheet before the turnaround was completed by a beautiful strike from outside of the box by Scotty.

The coaches were so proud that despite the close attention the Panthers had continued to receive throughout the game they had the courage and bravery to keep getting their foot on the ball and playing their football! Well done lads!

Wyrley! Panthers v Colron League Match

This game could have been decided either way it was that close all the way to the end. It appeared that the first goal would be crucial as nothing separated the teams at half time.

In the second half the Panthers struck first through a free kick from Whizza thanks to some good movement in front of the keeper by George Whitehouse.

Then the game turned on its head as the Panthers conceded a penalty as George clipped the Colron attacker in the box. Louis Beesley was the hero as he stood tall and saved the penalty with his feet. The Panthers went up the other end of the pitch following some great play from Whizza who put the ball into the box with his left which was met brilliantly by the head of George for the winner.

The Panthers held on to the 2-0 lead until the end thanks to a solid, hardworking defensive performance with all the lads working hard for each other.

Two superb performances put the Panthers joint top of the league. An extremely proud day for the coaches and parents as the boys showed some real grit and teamwork today!

Man of the matches were awarded to George for covering every blade of grass on the pitch and Louis Beesley for his safe hands and penalty save.
