St Albans City Youth FC - Match Reports w/e 30th October 2021



Berkie Jaguars played St Albans City Youth FC Under 9 Girls Orient

A tough game away today against a hardy and skilled Berkie team.

They were plenty of half terms COBWEBS it seemed in the first couple of quarters as the girls struggled to find the intensity needed to match a spritely Berkie side.

The girls sprang into life late in the second quarter thanks to an excellent finish by Alice WITCH was the result of her super pressing of the Berkie defence and drew the Orient level after an earlier Jaguars goal.

The girls took a deserved lead in the second half with a poachers finish by Phoebe but they couldn’t hold the lead to the end of the game as they were pegged back by an excellent long distance strike from the Berkie stand-put performer.

Notable performances:

*indefatigable running from Alice and Mia
*Superb defending from Evie
*Superb close control and vision from Phoebe to set up an excellent chance
*very strong midfield play from Sophia who showed once again her growing confidence and excellent decision making

PotM went to Chloe though for her performance in defence. After an uncertain start, she grew brilliantly into the role and showed superb defensive instincts to shut down several dangerous attacks and made insightful covering runs to shut Berkie out.
