Berkswich Hawks v Penkridge Junior u12′s

Our third game in the u12′s medal competition saw us pitched against Berkswich Hawks, familiar opponents who’d moved across to the Lichfield League from Mid Staffs at the start of the season. We couldn’t have asked for a better start with Penkridge opening the scoring within 13seconds, Joe N did all the hard work, controlling the bouncing ball on a very hard pitch, with a strike on goal, for it to rebound off the keeper and Jack P following up to drive the ball home. Our Second came from a free kick just over the half way line, Elliot fired the ball in, Matt jumped up to head, for the ball to outpace him and the goalkeeper and end up in the back of the net, with Penkridge dominating our third came from slick passing through the midfield, with Marcus finishing by putting the ball in the net.

Penkridge having dominated for the first 15 minutes, the next half hour belonged to Berkswich who had regrouped and either side of half time were the better team, breaking up our play and scoring two well deserved goals.

3-2 with 15minutes to go, to be fair at this stage the game could have gone either way, but Penkridge took the advantage with about 5minutes to go, again another good run from Joe for the strike to either come of the goalkeeper or post (sorry missed it) and again Jack following up drove the ball home,

Final score 2 – 4, the medal group is now ours to lose with our next game against Burntwood Dragons Green, having lost to them already this season this will be a stern test.
