U12 Girls A Football

Posted by cobrasports

Score: 2-2 (D) vs ICS

The U12 Girls had their first game of the season against ICS. It ended up being a tough game on a very wet day, on a very muddy (coconut husk) pitch that had no bounce and we also had no substitutes. The girls did very well fighting back from an unfortunate 2-0 deficit early in the game to draw 2-2 with goals from Anna and Rosie. Plenty of chances were created and unfortunately not as many were taken as we hoped for, but the effort the girls put in for 50 mins was extremely pleasing. It looks like we will be very competitive in the season and everyone is looking forward to the next game.

Score: 4-2 (W) v Kellett A

Cobras U12 Girls A football team played an experienced and physically strong Kellett A team at their Kowloon campus. From the start, Kellett used their size and home advantage convincingly and quickly closed down DC possession, often intercepting any loose ball. Cobras had to dig deep after going a goal behind early on. Once DC settled down they found confidence on the ball, the Kellett team appeared flustered and the formidable Anna cut through the field, taking the ball into Kellett’s own half. Rosie, Lisa and Anna produced some powerful shots on target and it wasn’t too long before DC began to find the back of Kellett’s net. Anna scored from a free kick stunning Kellett’s wall of defence. During the second half Lisa and Anna produced a great partnership, delivering some quality quick passing, moving the ball around into space. Under pressure throughout the match, the whole team delivered a very strong performance and should be proud they kept their heads in the game. A tough fixture which required both supportive team work and individual skill to come away with a respectable win.

U12 Boys B Football

Score: 6-1 (W) vs Harrow

This game was played straight after the loss to Harrow B so the boys started the game with a point to prove. Unfortunately we went 1 nil down after a wonderfully struck free kick for Harrow. The boys responded superbly though and goals from Seth Peramunetilleke, Ralphy Dray and Oliver Luk ensured we reached half-time with a healthy 3-1 lead. The second half started as though the game was 0-0, with the boys defending resolutely and playing some lovely one touch football on the break. Another 2 goals from Oliver and another for Ralphy ensured we ran out much deserved 6-1 winners. The boys have worked so hard for the 3 previous games with little reward but they got a fantastic result here and should be very proud of their effort, especially given that we only had one substitute on what was a very humid day. Outstanding effort. Go Cobras!

U12 Boys B Football

Score: 1-7 (L) vs Harrow

Our third fixture of the season was against Harrow B. The teams were very evenly matched early on in a keenly contested game with good chances at both ends. Harrow managed to get the all important breakthrough to go one up, but the boys responded magnificently and equalised through a wonder strike from Ralphy Dray, a beautiful curling shot that found the top right-hand bin. 1-1. More chances followed for the DC boys but we were unable to capitalise and were punished by Harrow just before half-time, who then led 2-1 going into the break. The boys put in a sterling effort in the second half but once Harrow got 2 and 3 goals ahead the game ran away from us.

Score: 3-1(W) v Harrow

Despite going a goal down in the first half to a physically larger team, the girls spent far more time in the opposition half and had some good attempts on goal only missing that final killer shot when in front of the net. As the game moved into the second half the girls became increasing assertive and showed their desire to pull back the deficit. They chased and pressured and saw their efforts rewarded with three goals from three different players. All round a fantastic team effort and a deserved win.

The DC Cobra Ultimate Team played an intense match against the RCHK Black Kites. Despite taking a loss, it was a well-fought match and DC made the other team work hard for their victory.

U12 Boys B Football

Score: 0-3 (L) vs RCHK

This was the second fixture of the season for the boys. The pitch at Kowloon Bay was much larger than many of the boys are used to playing on and on a really hot day the team put in an amazing amount of energy and effort, of which they should be proud of. The scoreline flattered RCHK a little as the game was 1-0 for a long time and on another day we would have taken the chances that we did create. The boys ran out of steam a bit towards the end which resulted in conceding another couple of goals, but the boys should still hold their heads high. Of particular joy was the camaraderie between both DC B and DC C teams, each team supporting each other brilliantly during both games. Fantastic team spirit which is great to see.
