Lions U17 lose first league game but gain experience !
On Saturday we first had the U8 Lions in cooperation with Coerver Coaching participating the SPL youth league ! The Lions showed good football and won both their games. The won 5-3 versus Century Park and 5-1 versus the Dulwich Panthers.
In the afternoon the U17’s made their debut in the 7 aside league in Puxi. They were up against the leader Aksil who obvious had more experience in playing in this format. In the first half we played very well especially in the build up but we failed to focus on the defensive responsibilities and got punished for it. They took a 1-0 lead but we came back by a very good combination play within 5 minutes nicely finished by Bank ! The defense issues kept hunting us and we went into half time trailing 3-1. Aksil’s best player scored the 4-1 and the Lions were not giving up yet as Rick hit the cross bar and in the last 5 minutes they got their deserved goal good cross in from Calum and strong finish by Rick to make it 4-2 !
Great experience for the boys and Olivia and we are full of confidence that we can win our next game !
