The U9 Whites played their toughest opponent of the Spring Cup yesterday.
This was the 3rd meeting between both teams during the U9 calendar year with both teams coming out on top once each.
Chester went behind midway through the 1st half despite being on top since the start but Kris responded immediately with an excellent effort from outside the area that flew into the top right corner. The scoreline remained the same going into the break.
After the restart, Chester were on the back foot for most of the 2nd half. They conceded a goal 10 mins in and, when pushing for an equaliser, Chester were caught down their left side and a brilliant ball in was finished well.
Chester kept plugging away to get back into the game and it looked as though it wasn’t to be. However, with 2 mins remaining, Chester finally got the luck their 1st half performance deserved. An effort from Grayson was sliced into his own goal by the defender on the line when attempting to clear the ball.
With their tails now up, Chester dispossessed the opposition straight away which resulted in Chester winning a corner. Grayson played a perfect ball into the danger area where Brooklyn Brooklyn beat the GK to the bouncing ball and rifled it in to the back of the net.
The result showed how far the team have come as they know it’s never over until the final whistle and despite being 3-1 down with 2 mins to go and not playing their best, they rescued a draw and remain unbeaten in the Spring Cup.
