Pinnstars u16w were up against the team they lost to 8:2 the week before. ProFa came expecting to dish out some more punishment on a leaky defense.(But they didnt know our enforcer, Cem, was back). Early in the 1st half Pinnstars soaked up lots of pressure. The team defensive display was magnificent. Pinnstars hit the post and have a few chances missed and cleared off the line. Determind performance from Connor the defense & Midfield saw an entertaining 1st half end 0:0.
The 2nd half saw Pinnstars start to turn up the pressure. Goals from Toby and Myles saw us leading the game 2:0.
The vistor clawed one back before Toby was fouled in the penalty area. Jashan bravely stepped up for the penalty and struck it well but the chance went high over the bar. A brilliant save from a free-kick by Ben kept us ahead before some more fantastic play from Toby, Alfie, Myles, Kai & Aayush, saw us created afew more golden opportunities that we failed to convert. Myles more or less sealed victory with another well taken opportunity inside the box to take the score line to 3:1. The vistors scored another late goal to leave the final 5 minutes on a knife edge, But Pinnstars U16W Held out for a well deserved victory.
With our unconverted chances this should have been a much more convincing victory. The final score Pinnstars U16W 3 - ProFa 2 does not reflect our superiority in this game.!
