Abbey take another good victory over Worplesdon Rangers
A game dominated by possession and control...
With the league now in full swing Abbey Rangers U12's traveled to Kingfield Park in Guildford to meet Worplesdon Rangers. A nervous time for the Coaching team as Abbey historically do not do well with early kick offs but this was blown out of the water with a convincing win.
The team played great football, maintained a fantastic shape throughout the game and solid performances from all players ensured a solid win and another 3 points on the board. The scoring was opened early in the game and we quickly added a second goal. Worplesdon fought hard to hold us at 2-0 until half time.
A few tactical substitutions gave us fresh legs down the wings and in the second half we added a third settling the nerves down as we were now playing uphill where the advantage fell to Worplesdon. A minor lack in concentration gave Worplesdon their only goal of the game and at 3-1 the nerves returned.
However, further substitutions again gave the drive to push forward with goals coming easily. Joseph and Salvi again made the perfect partnership up front while Liam played arguably his best game of the season adding 2 goals to the tally. Salvi bagged another hatrick and Joseph finished the game off with a great strike.
Brett played an integral part in the game holding the midfield very well and distribution was spot on feeding the forwards. Abbey controlled the game start to finish and put in a solid performance to put another 3 points on the board.
Possession was immense, distribution was fantastic and movement was encouraging showing the boys keep developing as the season continues to build. We now look forward to a tougher match on the 29th against our old friends Meadow Sports Youth and a cup tie coming up in the league cup.
