Heighington AFC Under 9s
Velocity Eagles 1 v Heighington FC 5
The Heighington U9s took to the field today after their week off and looked as hungry as ever as they put on a fine display of football in the morning sunshine. Straight from the off the boys took the game by the scruff of the neck with an early period of pressure which saw them 2 ahead with goals from our fantastic captain Lucas and an ever improving Mitchell. It wasn’t long before Lucas was on target again with a goal from our new corner routine and Mitchell also fired home before the break, from the very same corner routine we’ve been working on the last few weeks.
With the score at 4-0 at half time and the points in the bag it was a great opportunity to play the boys in different positions all over the field. Will Farrow, as always, put in a shift and ran the midfield effortlessly, a goal and 2 assists were his rewards, rounding off the scoring to make it 5-1.
A quiet morning for Matty in goal thanks to the defensive wall of Logan, Isaac and Olly. James, Jamie, Tyler and Olly all unlucky not to be on the scoresheet with great performances to boot.
MOTM: Isaac Morgan, a great defensive display with some brilliant tackles. Held his position perfectly enabling his team to go forward confidently.
Big shout out and thank you to the SASH hardware gang for sponsoring the boys https://www.sash-hardware.co.uk
Heighington AFC U11s
Washington FC Wildcats 2 v Heighington AFC 5
The Mighty Red and Blacks were back to their very best today.
Washington started the match off the stronger and quickly took a 2 goal lead. However, the lads didn’t let their heads drop and they went on to dominate the remainder of the game with Jack finding his form again, created 4 goals and scoring our 5th.
The whole team played brilliantly and never stopped the entire match. We lost last week’s MoM. Ollie A, to injury early on with Yaley replacing him. Despite the 2 early goals, the defence played their hearts out and made sure they kept things tight.
Once they all found their feet and confidence again everyone pushed for the win and they all came off the pitch laughing and smiling after getting back to winning ways again.
The score could have been a lot more had it not been for Wildcats goalkeeper. Even down to a point blank save with his face at the death from a close range Coleby header.
Goals scored by Jack x 1, Oscar x 2, Oliver C x 2.
MoM went to Jack for laying 4 goals on a plate. He never stopped running throughout and battled hard. He also helped himself to a brilliant goal, guiding the ball into the bottom corner through a packed box.
