White Sands U10 's Match Report
Despite White Sands trying to keep the ball, we made errors and gave away possession in areas where we shouldn't. The YG2K players grabbed those chances with aplomb but conceding 4 goals didn't stop the White Sands boys from trying. All game long they probed and worked the ball into dangerous areas but the YG2K players were fitter and extremely competitive.
Ironically, it was only after the score had been 4-0 that we started to play with more confidence and penetration. 9 year old Norafiq was the standout performer as he grew in confidence and decided to impose himself on the game. He prompted his team-mates from his deep position and made some telling passes. His efforts were rewarded with a goal and an assist. Ilman Haziq, too, grew in stature as the game wore on. He was commanding at the back and did not commit any more errors after the early blip.
Not the best of starts but quite a good ending to the game.
