Match Reports October 17th & 18th 2015
Under 8s played Wigton Moor at home, winning 3 games and losing 1. Delighted with them today, they worked really hard and were all on good form.
Under 11s Girls
Girls under 11s lost for the first time in the league away at Wiggington Grasshoppers. It was the flattest performance of the season. The friendly team played really well but they too went down to a defeat.
Under 11s Boys
U11s played hard fought matches away at Wetherby. Squad rotation means we left a couple of key players out, and a head on collision left both teams a player down after just five minutes. We lost three and drew one.
U12s won 8-1 away at Wigton Moor.
Under 13s Boys
U13s won 4 - 0 away at Knaresborough Celtic. A very solid team performance and we could even get away with missing a penalty from our normally reliable top scorer.
Under 14s beat Beckwithshaw 7-2 in a friendly match on Saturday, and strolled past Pannal Sports on Sunday. The score was 2-0 but we could have had 5-6 more if we understood the dimensions of the net.
Under 15s lost to Wetherby for the second weekend running, going down 5 –1.
U16s lost 5-2 away at top of the table Knaresborough but the match was much closer than the scoreline suggests; particularly as KDR were without both usual choices for goalkeeper.
Deighton took the lead with a perfectly placed free kick from Tom Pearson only for Knaresborough to score the next three goals. KDR got one back on the stroke of half-time when Luke Kilby scored following a through ball from James O'Sullivan.
In the second half Deighton had the majority of possession but just couldn't convert any of half a dozen clear scoring opportunities. Knaresborough scored twice from the few chances they had.
Man of the Match was Dan Hodkinson with runner up being Tom Pearson.
U17s drew 2-2 at home to Wetherby. Very proud of the lads today. In a feisty affair we were two down at half time but pulled it back in the second half. We created lots of chances and with better decision making in the final third should have won comfortably. The Wetherby keeper was probably their man of the match.
