U 12 Hanover Harp Red- 4 V St Josephs AFC-0

First game of the year for the U 12 team didn`t go as planned according to the score line but the score line doesn’t do this team justice. Both teams started well and attacked each other from the whistle . There was nothing between them. Joeys were playing out from the back and progressed well only losing the ball once from this.  Hanover  then scored from a deflected shot . HT 1-0.

Second half was much of the same with both teams playing well . The bit of luck was against Joeys today and Hanover scored a second deflected shot. With the ball looping over Josh who could do nothing about it. This gave Hanover the edge and they scored 2 more goals.

What would have happened if those deflected shots not gone in , we will never know. But a lot of positives came from the game , passing out from the back worked very well, new players performing well,overall play was good so were happy. Two weeks of  training   ahead before our next game so all good.
