Brilliant game this morning for the under 8s away to Ashwell Academicals, a much needed return to playing after so many cancelled games. All available players turned up wanting to have fun and get on the pitch there were goals today from Alfie and Cody C and everyone played brilliantly. Well done team. MOTM :- Alex
Stotfold Juniors Blacks were the visitors to Ralph Sadlier this week with the Under 13’s hoping for either a win or a draw to take them to the top of the League outright. With a strong squad available The Hares were hoping for a good start, but Stotfold looked a much stronger outfit to the one that The Hares beat earlier on in the season. With both teams sharing the possession in the early stages it was clear it was going to be a very tight game, and the home side didn’t do themselves any favours when they put into their own net to make it 0-1 to the visitors on 9 mins. Luck was against The Hares 3 minutes later when the referee judged the ball had crossed the line when it looked very much like it had hit the inside of the post. Despite the muted protests by both players and the linesman the referee’s decision stood and the goal was given. With The Hares feeling very hard done by they kept their heads up and went into half time with the score 0-2 to Stotfold. The second half saw the Hares pushing for the goal that would get themselves back into the game, with Joey W coming close with a shot which came off the cross bar. Eventually the home side got the goal they deserved when George C was quickest to the rebound off the keeper from a Barney O’H free kick to make it 1-2. The Hares were pushing for the equaliser, but with time running out they just couldn’t get the goal they needed and the game finished 1-2 to Stotfold. A much improved performance from recent weeks by the lads, and with the luck against them it could have, and should have been a much better result. MOTM this week went to Joey W for his non-stop hard work throughout the game.
