Under-nines progress after fine cup victory

ONYX CUP – Second round

Welton 0 Market Rasen U9s 1

The game kicked off with Rasen soon on the attack.

The Welton keeper made two good saves from Greg Watson and George Balmer, but Rasen continued to pressurise, forcing several corners which nearly created goals. However, desperate defending and good goalkeeping kept Rasen out, with Welton only threatening on a few counter attacks.

After 20 minutes Rasen took the lead when a lovely through ball found Joshua Jordan bearing down on goal, who unleashed a great shot into the bottom corner of the net to make it 0-1.

Rasen continued to create more chances, only to be denied by great defending and goalkeeping.

Finlay Boyes made two excellent saves in the Rasen goal in the second half when Welton threatened.

The game continued in similar pattern, with Rasen having most of the play and at the final whistle Rasen secured an excellent win in the Onyx Cup against a team from the A League.

The team were awarded a combined man of the match because it was an excellent team display.

Team: Finlay Boyes (c), Liam Jordon, Oliver Adlam, Callum Dean, George Balmer, Greg Watson, Benjamin Flear, Toby Ross, Joshua Jordan.
