Buntingford Cougars

Cougars U11s Whites vs Panshanger Tigers, Saturday 22nd February on a very windy morning at the Whites' home stadium, Edwinstree!

Some last minute urgent repairs and reinforcements required to the goals before the game could get under way. Fortunately the rain quickly subsided leaving just the very strong wind.

Benton, Dawson (capt), Perryman, Eastwood, White, Cole, Bullock, Brown, Scott, White, Byrne, Roskilly.

A battling performance from all players today against an organised Tigers team who seemed to play a quite direct style of football.

A good start from Cougars saw a number of chances created early on and a couple of half chances from Byrne and White who had a really good chance which he seemed to snap at. The wind was clearly causing both teams problems blowing the ball back from any clearance.

The defence of Dawson, Cole and Roskilly doing well to snuff out any Panshanger chances.

Good running from midfield 4 of Bullock, Eastwood, White and Collery kept creating chances for the ever willing Byrne who did very well battling against players twice his size.

Within a few minutes another Cougars chance and a great shot from Rafael White into the roof of the net was all the Cougars deserved.

With the introduction of Scott in defence diving in making slide tackle after slide tackle and Brown replacing Byrne up front causing problems for the Tigers defence.

Perryman’s willingness to chase down the Tigers midfield was a real treat to watch.

The second half wind was again causing problems and Cougars dominance started to show with Benton not really having any saves to make thanks to some great last ditch defending by the Cougars defence of Perryman, Scott and Roskilly.

Middle of second half, some outstanding running from Brown caused panic in the Tigers defence and a vicious tackle brought a penalty.

Up stepped the willing Roskilly, who has a great left foot. With the wind blowing a gale and despite a great effort, an even better save from the Tigers goalkeeper kept it out.

With 5 minutes to go Eastwood found himself running at goal, beats one and out muscles a second before drilling in a right foot shot into the far corner of the net.

From a coaches point of view there were clearly signs of improvement with some neat one twos and the passing on occasions was very good despite the conditions and the direct approach from their opponents.

Some really good performances from all players today including White, Brown, and Eastwood.

POM was Cauley Scott for all his all round performance and for some outstanding tackles.

Thanks to all the parents for their support.

Enjoy your weekend.
