Bayside 5-a-side Cup Round 2

November 6, 2016

 

The U11 Cobras have continued their dominant form in round 2 of the Bayside 5-a-side Cup.

 

Versing the Thunderbolts the Cobras demonstrated that superior technique can overcome greater numbers.

The competition applies a Scottish 5-a-side rule that if a team goes down on the scoreboard by 5 goals it is allowed to bring on an additional player and play 6 vs 5 players until the margin is reduced to 4 goals.

Having accumulated 5 goals within the first ten minutes the Cobras found themselves facing 6 Thunderbolts for the remaining  36 minutes of the match. 

However the superior numbers did not do much to assist the Thunderbolts in defending against the U11's relentless ball movement though it did keep the Cobras defense honest with the constant threat of a quick break. On more than 1 occasion Jack our goalie was forced to demonstrate his agility and determination .
