Non Competitive Fixture (No result)
SWWGL U9s West (Non Competitive)
Another close game in the 3rd of 4 games for the U9s, this time with fellow recent newcomers to the U9s, AFC Whitchurch.
It turned out to be yet another evenly fought contest, with both teams creating many opportunities. Tayla was back in goal for Caerphilly Castle and made a number of good saves.
It did however become apparent that the Caerphilly girls were starting to tire, and struggled to be as mobile around the pitch, which at times left gaping holes in the back for Whitchurch to exploit. Two excellent finished saw them race into a 2 goal lead.
It also became clear though the Caerphilly Castle girls were becoming more accustomed to the method of play, with frequent good interchange of passing between Lundun, Grace and Ava. It was a nice passage of play which saw Grace score the first of her two goals in the match – a neat finish giving the keeper little chance for the first, and a composed 2nd which was scored not long after Whitchurch managed a fortuitous third.
Despite best efforts, Caerphilly Castle couldn’t keep the momentum going, and the match ended in an unlucky defeat.
