U12 White - Match Report

Rovers Back On Track

(Phil Smith 21/10/2019)

6    Congleton Rovers JFC U12 White
0    Winsford Diamonds

(Match Date: Saturday 19th October 2019)
Saturday saw Congleton Rovers U12 White hosting Winsford Diamonds, hoping to bounce back from two consecutive losses.
At the last minute it was decided to switch the game onto the 3G pitch due to a waterlogged pitch, with both teams hoping to take advantage of the surface by employing a fluent passing game. It wasn’t long before Congleton Rovers began to take hold of the game and it was only due to some wasteful finishing that they were not ahead early.
The opening goal came mid-way through the first half when Finley Plummer-Knight broke free of the Winsford defence managed to get a shot away from a central location that deflected past the visitors’ goalkeeper.
Congleton Rovers second goal also came from a Winsford error when under pressure, their centre half could only put a header past his own goalie from a corner kick.
The first half finished with Rovers leading two goals to nil, with Winsford feeling a little aggrieved that that had contributed to their own downfall, however Congleton felt that their dominance in all facets of the game had lead to the Winsford mistakes.
Soon after the restart Congleton effectively killed the game as a contest when Bodhi Waterhouse chasing a through ball nicked the ball past the on-rushing goalkeeper to put Congleton 3 goals up.
Buoyed by the goal Bodhi when on to score another 3 goals himself, the best of which was a curling effort from outside of the corner of the penalty box that dipped into the far corner.
Congleton’s defence marshalled by sweeper John Fletcher was mainly untroubled by Winsford’s attack with the away team only mustering one shot on target all game.
As the game entered its final ten minutes confidence was exuding from the home side and they began to string together some intricate massing moves, however Congleton’s strikers failed to take any more of their chances and the game finished Congleton Rovers U12 Whites 6 Winsford Diamonds U12 0.
Man of the match was four goal hero Bodhi Waterhouse
