It was a busy morning for our mini section todays, with games for our Under 8s, 9s, and 10 taking on Treowen Stars, and our Under 11s being supported by some u12 players matching up against Brynnau Juniors.
All the teams gave their all, in a series of very competitive games.
The Under 11s played some of their best football to date, with some silky passing moves and clinical finishing seeing them dominate the opening 20 minutes of their match, with a couple of great goals from Bethan and Megan.
As the game continued, Brynnau made some tactical and personnel changes, which gave them a lot more momentum going forward, and left Caerphilly playing much more of a counter attaking game, with Bethan causing all sorts of trouble for their defense.
Some great defending throughout from Chrissy, Emily and Daisy at the back, with tireless running from Sienna, Megan and Lucy in midfield kept the game close, and Sofija in goal, though kept quiet for most of the was called into action midway through the second half to make a great save tipping over the bar a cracking drive form the Brynnau forwards.
As the 2nd and 3rd 20 minutes of play continued, Caerphilly started to tire, and playing 9 a side without the luxury of substitutes which the opposition was able to call on was the real difference between the sides.
A great games, and some great performances from the Caerphilly under 11s suggest a very exciting season ahead.
