Raiders of the last minutes!
A good lively start to the game saw the Whites play some great attacking football, but after 7 minutes the Raiders broke through on the left and scored.
The Whites did not drop their heads and rallied with good football which paid off 5 minutes later. Dara drove in from the right with a great shot that the keeper parried away into Roco’s path and he banged it home.
In the second quarter Dara had an early strike at goal that hit the cross bar. Theo and Varun had some hard battles in defence but still got balls out to Charlie and Roco in the centre. The Whites continued with lively play in the 3rd quarter between Jack, Callum and Archie upfront, all having great chances on target, but it just would not go in. Nice passing play between Archie and Jack on the right hand side led to Jack scoring a beautiful goal shooting high in over the keeper.
Against the run of play the Raiders score from the right with low shot across goal.
The Whites replied with more shots from Callum and a lovely ball from Roco to Archie who let it run and hit a good shot, but just wide of the goal.
In the last minutes luck was on the Raiders side with a lobbed shot and they score.
Managers and parents voted for Man of the Match. This week it goes to………..…….
Jack! Well Done!!
