U10 Girls 5 – Their Parents 4

img_9777The U10 Girls closed their season with a tightly fought win against their coaches and parents. Playing an unorthodox 14×14 format on a 7×7 field, the parent team entered the game overconfident and were soon put in their place by a more skillful (and much shorter) team.

The Girls took an early lead off a free kick by Julia which sailed  over the wall  and straight past the keeper (her dad).  The parents quickly equalised exploiting the long ball and no offside rule to score a couple of goals. The girls fought back, and with seconds to go, drew a controversial penalty kick.  The penalty was skillfully taken , fooling  the goalie passing close to the post leaving the girls ahead 5-4 at the final whistle.  Well played, girls!  A great way to close a fantastic season.
