Westella Willerby u9s put in 2 more impressive displays at Dene Park versus East Yorkshire Carnegie Blacks on Sunday 16th October.
In torrential rain they dominated proceedings from the start and with 2 more clean sheets to boot, the boys have taken their game to the next level.
Game 1 started with Carnegie having a good go at Westella and a smart near post save denied Carnegie an early lead. Westella responded well and scored on 6 minutes after a good run down the right and a perfectly weighted pass was well executed. Westella’s keeper had to be alert once more as Carnegie looked dangerous and again he saved well. The next move was a touch of real class by Westella as a move starting from goalkeeper all the way down field with slick passing in the blink of an eye was turned in by Westella’s striker at the far post. Superb goalkeeping this time by Carnegie kept Westella at bay to the interval.
The second half began, and Westella were full of purpose as they looked to continue a good performance and as Westella began to up the tempo they were rewarded with a fine goal after more superb midfield intensity. Westella again pushed on and were awarded a penalty midway through the half for a foul in the area, but Westella’s striker was so unlucky as his strike went an inch wide with the Carnegie keeper rooted to the spot. Dogged defending and brave goalkeeping kept Westella from scoring more.
Game 2 started at a ferocious pace as the rain intensified so did Westella’s attacking prowess as they began to turn on the style with some Barcelona-esque moves and attacking flair. Two minutes in and a great move was well finished after a post had aided Carnegies keeper. Westella then bagged another after a bursting run through midfield and a powerful strike struck a post as Westella’s striker pounced to score after an initial good save from the excellent Carnegie keeper. Westella’s keeper then had work to do as Carnegie looked for an instant response as he produced a fine save after a through ball. Westella struck once more after a slide rule pass through the middle was buried into the bottom corner. Classy Westella weren’t finished yet as their striker pounced again with a neat finish. A long range free kick was lashed onto the woodwork once more from Westella as the half ended with Westella dominating proceedings.
The second half saw Westella inflict relentless pressure on a battling Carnegie as their striker found the net early on. Minutes later a Fine defensive pass was carried down field by Westella’s winger and he smashed the ball past the busy Carnegie keeper. The woodwork again helped Carnegie as another free kick struck a post from Westella. Carnegie were really finding it difficult to deal with Westella by now and on 10 minutes a great turn in the area and a brilliant lay off was finished off with a precise strike. With just minutes remaining two carbon copy goals ended the game in style after the Westella forwards combined beautifully down the right and immaculate crosses were dispatched impeccably as the game ended perfectly for Westella.
A huge amount of credit has to be given to East Yorkshire Carnegie Blacks for giving it a real go but the day belonged to the ever impressive “Catalans” from Westella Willerby u9s.
Parents man of the match went to Dylan Jacobsen for his unbelievable versatility and endeavour. Managers man of the match went to Jacob Caselton for his strength, power and determination. All the boys from numbers 1 to 11 from both teams did them selves proud on the day in absolutely horrendous playing conditions.
