Tough start to the season for the U 11 team, away to Hanover .
Both teams started brightly and played some lovely soccer to keep the game flowing nicely from end to end . We created some nice passes into the box which led to a corner .Jack stepped up and delivered a lovely ball onto the head of Conor who put it into the top corner to score our first ever goal from a header .Hanover came back and equalised quickly but again we took the lead just before half time to go in 2-1 up.
Praise must go to all players as there was a lot of changes with positions etc but everyone took up the challenge and played out of their skin as a team .
In the second half Josh pulled off a lovely save to keep us ahead .We then extended the lead to 3-1 with another goal from Conor .The last 10 minutes got a bit scrappy but St Josephs kept their composure to still play some nice soccer and roll out winners .
Overall a very good TEAM performance .Well done.
