Last game of 2009 and what a cracker!

Bere Regis Colts V Maiden Newton Youth Football Club 13th December - Last game of 2009 and what a cracker!

We first played Bere Regis at home on the 18th October and it was a fantastic game, full of drama, tension and excitement.

Every time Maiden Newton scored a goal, Bere Regis would score another and so it continued for the duration of the game. Rhys scored the winning goal with a minute to spare on that day. We were all looking forward to the follow-up game on the 13th and we were not disappointed. Both sides were evenly matched with lots of play at both ends of the pitch. Just as well as it was a cold day and the spectators kept warm by pacing up and down the pitch.

Both teams had opportunities to take the lead in the first half, however, it remained 0-0 going into the second half. Bere Regis managed to break away and score the first goal. Maiden Newton raised their game and Tao scored their first goal from a corner kick taken by Sean.

Our second goal came from a set piece - Arron did a throw in at the half way line, Sean lobbed the ball forward to Rhys who scored a great goal. Maiden Newton's third goal was a copy of their first, only this time Tao took the corner kick and Sean scored. Joseph was captain and goalie for this game and he did a great job keeping out a number of goal bound efforts. Bere Regis were still hungry for another goal and claimed another before the end of the game. The traditional penalty shootout took place after the end of the match. Well done Maiden Newton and Bere Regis. Games will resume again after the Christmas break. LW
