Armthorpe Wolves U7s Vs Edenthorpe Junior U7s
League Match 22-02-15
Edenthorpe continued our away run of games with a derby match against Armthorpe Wolves on a deceptively cold Sunday morning.
Edenthorpe started bright and good passing setup Diyar Mahmud in the first quarter for his first of the match firing past a stranded Armthorpe keeper – 1-0 Edenthorpe!
The second quarter followed the same pace of play. Edenthorpe applied lots of midfield pressure with good tackles from Bradley Tattersall and Charlie Greenwood causing Armthorpe plenty of problems. Again Mahmud found himself in space in the Armthorpe box and again he slotted the ball home to make it 2-0 Edenthorpe!
The second half saw Mahmud take over in Goal for Edenthorpe and Kosta Papazoglou come out of goal to slot into the midfield. A foul from Armthorpe saw Edenthorpe gain a freekick inside the opposing half and Archie McCormack stepped up from defence to strike a pure shot that whistled past the Armthorpe post!
Liam Cresswell was a constant thorn in the side of the Armthorpe defence and this pressure combined with quick closing down in midfield saw Kosta, Cresswell and Greenwood all have shots saved but it was Bradley Tattersall who popped up with a good run and a stabbed shot that made it 3-0 Edenthorpe!
The last quarter saw lots of pressure from Edenthorpe and some close calls from Finley Cordingley in his best performance to date, along with a couple of Armthorpe scares but the game played out without any more goals.
Another great performance from Edenthorpe in our local derby. We were again solid in defence and quick to close down in midfield to dominate possession. Next up, Tickhill away in the Cup!
