Bloxham u9 reach semi-final
By Andrew Knaggs
Bloxham show good spirit
Bloxham played their first tournament of the summer and can be very proud of themselves.
Their first match was against Brackley town yellows and Bloxham dominated the first 6 mins of the match but couldn't put the ball in the net and Brackley broke away in the last 4 mins and had 2 shots which went in.
Brackley Town Yellows 2 Bloxham 0
Their second match was against Brackley Athletic and again Bloxham were in control from the start but struggled to find the net until Rylie
got the ball and ran at the Brackley defence which opened up for him to smash it down the center of the goal to score.
Bloxham 1 Brackley Athletic 0
Bloxham third match was against Brackley town Girls and once again Bloxham dominated with Ryan ,Rylie,Kajus getting on the score sheet.
Bloxham 3 Brackley town Girls 0
Their final game of the group was against Willen Bulldogs which Bloxham started strongly and basically camped in their half and made chance after chance but just couldn't get the ball into the net.
They passed it around really well and did everything right but for some reason the ball wouldn't cross that goal line.
Bloxham 0 Willen Bulldogs 0
Bloxham had made it to the semi-final their opponents were grange park rangers.
Bloxham held Their own for the first 5 mins but then grange scored their first and then went on to score another 3 which deflated Bloxham and in the end the best team won but it was a good learning curve for Bloxham.
Bloxham 0 Grange Park Rangers 4
Review:All the players did well and played some good football they just lacked that killer instinct in front of goal but apart from that a really good tournament for Bloxham and every player should feel proud of what the achieved today.
