FC PHOENIX U12’S v PEGASUS
Sunday 18th September 2011
Home Game KO 10.30am
our first game postponed by Hinton, the time had come to play our first game
of the 2011/12 season at home to Pegasus Colts. The pitch size was still an
issue but Mr Ken Hooper of the Herefordshire FA said the game will go ahead!
Fortunately the council had filled the deep pot holes on the pitch and we
were ready to play.
Phoenix started slowly with the passing quite limited but after ten minutes
the passes started to flow followed by the goals. Our captain Els had stepped
down before the game and is putting his concentration into the Hereford
United team so after some team voting Dazzo stepped up with the captain’s
armband with Azzo the 2nd in command.
4, 6, 8 who do we appreciate? The quest for a hat trick! Four lads, Ols,
Lewwy, Gouphy and Troyster all managed to get two goals each so the attempts
at goal by these guys increased as the game went on as they tried to get
their hat trick. Never the less it was undoubtedly the teams efforts that
created these goals as Pegasus Colts actually played quite well and the score
didn’t reflect on how well they did play.
consolation goal came though as Dazzo put his hands on the back of their striker
to give them a penalty. A soft decision but probably a right one so they
stepped up to the spot. An excellent penalty was taken and an even better
save from Meds but unfortunately Peggy attackers had already run into the box
before the kick was taken so they had another attempt and got their goal.
