28/09/08 U9 Utd


Bustleholme Utd 4 Bentley 3

After last week’s great performances Utd made a slow start to this game going a goal down very early. This setback brought the team to life with an equaliser from Josh Appleyard followed by a great finish from Alex Bell putting us 2-1 up. We then allowed Bentley back into the game by allowing them to equalise just before half time.

The start to the second half started better with Utd creating some good chances. The pressure finally paid off with another goal from the energetic Alex Bell and Alex Hayes. This was a hard fought win in the end as Bentley pulled one back a few minutes from the end but Utd hung on to win 4-3.

Bustleholme Utd 1 Brewood 4

Utd started this game brightly and went ahead via a great run and finish Kaine Butler but Brewood punished silly Bustleholme mistakes by equalising midway into the first half. Brewood missed some good chances to go into the lead following further mistakes from a number of players but the half ended 1-1.

Unfortunately, the mistakes were repeated in the second half only this time they were punished by some good Brewood finishing as the went into a 3-1 lead. However, it wasn’t all one-way traffic and near misses from Kaine, Alex Hayes and Nikki kept the game competitive. Brewood finished the scoring with a breakaway goal to finsh 4-1 winners.

In summary, the players weren’t quite on their game this week but the group should take heart from a good round robin campaign. Special mention goes to Alex Bell for his bustling displays which were rewarded with 2 goals (almost 3 but for a good save from the keeper).
