This friendly marked Edenthorpe’s U7 first ever match and against an experienced Barnby Dun side with some windy weather, it was going to be a tough game!
Barnby Dun started well and made the early going with good passing leading to a 4 goal lead after the first quarter.
The second quarter was all Edenthorpe though and goals from Archie McCormack, Kosta Papazoglu, & Liam Cresswell got us back to 4 all, even with a missed penalty! A fifth goal from Barnby Dun was answered with a leveler from Archie just before Half Time making it 5-5 at the break.
The second half was all Barnby Dun and it was here their experience showed with Edenthorpe losing Finley Cordingley with a sore foot and also having to battle against the wind and Barnby Dun attack. The final score was 13 – 6 to Barnby Dun with Bradley Tattersall scoring our late consolation goal.
A good first game from Edenthorpe with good performances from all including some goalmouth heroics from Kosta and solid games by Tyler Blythe and Niamh Robertson gives us a good platform to build from as we move into our next game next week against Bentley.
