Focus on Beccles area teams

HALESWORTH TOWN U9 had their toughest match of the season so far away at the league leaders Gorleston Rangers B.

The home side got off to the best possible start with two goals in the first five minutes which involved good but simple passing and Halesworth were guilty of not tracking back to intercept these passes.

After their slow start, Halesworth got into the game with some good tackling, but all too often they were being caught out by quick attacking from a well-organised Gorleston team. They were stretched again before half-time when Gorleston went further in front, leaving their defence and goalkeeper stranded.

The second half was far more even with both goalkeepers making good saves, the pick of which from Halesworth’s James Mitchell who turned a powerful shot round the post for a corner. Halesworth scored a consolation with a well-worked solo goal from Hayden Ling, but this didn’t change the outcome of the match which ended 5-1 to the home side.

ST BENETS WASPS U9A played at Hemsby B and from the first whistle took the game to their opponents. Wasps dominated the first-half possession, wisely and defensively allowed Hemsby very little in the way of chances, thanks to the outstanding William and back-up defender Tom, who was playing out of position due to illness.

Alex, Ryan and Joe battled hard in midfield with Hemsby equally strong in this area, to create chances for Harvey, whose pace looked to worry Hemsby at times. Owen and Josh went close to opening the scoring for Wasps, but good goalkeeping kept them at bay. A save from Wasps keeper Zach in the final minute ensured the Wasps came away with a well-deserved point from a 0-0 draw.

ST BENETS WASPS U9B travelled to Waveney Youth A. Both teams worked hard and Waveney took the lead. Dylan showed some great skills and passed to Kurtis who scored. Tommo made an excellent run down the wing passing to man-of-the-match Aiden, who tapped it in to put Wasps ahead. Goalkeeper Ryan was solid as a rock with strong defending from Zak, Ewan and Tariq. After some great play-making from Lewis, Kurtis, Aiden and Dylan, Tommo slotted one home.
