BARTESTREE JUNIORS U12’S V FC PHOENIX U12’S
Sunday 13th November 2011 Away Game KO 11.01am
Remembrance Sunday (Armistice Day) was honoured by a change of match start time and a minute silence. Great respect was shown by all and this was the same throughout the game. It was good to see the ref, both teams, coaches and spectators showing their support for those who never make it back from military action.
Only a couple of weeks ago FC Phoenix were made to work very hard for their win against Bartestree Juniors but on this occasion you could see that FC Phoenix wanted the win more. Bartestree Juniors were under extreme pressure and with all their effort they were unable to keep the Phoenix from scoring and putting four past their keeper.
Lewwy started as he finished the last game and scored the first goal. Jaytee had another chance to get his goal from a free kick and this time it went in again but most importantly, it counted! Gouphy finished off scoring the goals that counted with another two adding to his tally. Lewwy should arguably have had a hat trick because he had two goals disallowed. The first was deemed as being kicked out of the keepers hands but it was hard to see for sure and another went into the net but unfortunately the ref was a bit early with the whistle, giving FC Phoenix a free kick instead of playing the advantage. The whistle was blown just before the ball entered the net so he couldn’t change it.
The whole of the FC Phoenix team showed their skill and stamina and earned their place in the semi final with pride. The next round has been planned for December 11th at home against Hinton so that will be a juicy meeting too! Excellent work rate and play today & we are proud of all of them.
