The u8 Orange hosted Bassingbourn Youth this morning in a very close low scoring game. Bassingbourn started strongly and only some fine defending kept the scores level at half time. The second half Hares started to pass the ball well and it was the away team that needed to defend, Hares then decided to play more as individuals and it was Bassingbourn who started to dominate. Both teams did manage to get on the score sheet on a very close well played game.
The u8 Blacks played host to Stevenage Cyclones this morning, a fixture we always look forward to playing. Cyclone started the game much the stronger and pinned Hares in their own half for the first ten minutes. Hares then woke up and started to pass the ball with more confidence making for a much closer end to end game. The second half and Hares stepped up a gear and their quick passing game was causing the opposition trouble, Cyclone did not give up and made the Black’s work hard right to the final whistle. A very entraining game played and supported in the correct way by both teams players and parents.
Today the U10 Orange side played at home to St. Neots. The home side came flying out of the traps, playing some nice football moving the ball around and working hard when not in possession. The boys were rewarded when Taylor collected the ball just outside the area and chipped the keeper with a great finish. The same lad after more Hares pressure in the opposition half scored with a cool finish. With half time approaching Toby B broke away to score his first ever Hares goal. The second half saw a different Hares side, thinking the job was already done. With St. Neots upping their game, passing the ball around and gaining confidence, Hares conceded some sloppy goals. Poor finishing from the home side saw them unable match the good first half. Very good M.O.T.M performance from Taylor.
The Under 12’s visited top of the Table Bedwell Rangers this Sunday, but despite eventually going down 3-1 it was an improved performance by the boys from their last outing. It was the hosts who opened the scoring but The Hares were level going into half time after Tom Griffiths put a great ball through to George Clark who lobbed the goalkeeper to make it 1-1 at the break. With Bedwell having the advantage of the slope in the second half The Hares defence could not hold out and Bedwell added another 2 goals to their tally to make it 3-1. Hopefully the boys can take some positives from the game this week and soon get the win they deserve, in what is proving to be a very competitive league.
