The U12's Tornados made it two wins out of two for the current season and edged to the top of their league but made heavy weather of this match. The result may have been a little cruel for the visitors because they had no reserves to call upon and had to work hard for the whole match but never gave up.
The first half was an even affair. Chances were created at both ends but Will Ramage in goal for Tornado made a couple of good saves including a point blank save on the line to deny the forward when it would have been easier to score. He controlled the box well and kept the home team in the game.
It was Sevenoaks who took the lead with their magic man Mylo Wynter maintaining his amazing start to the season by netting yet again, slipping the ball past the goal keeper and into the net. As the half went on, the home team were in control of the match. Although they did not create too many chances they were able to keep Galaxy at bay and finished the half on top.
It was hoped that they would take that upper hand into the second half but it did not turn out that way. Timhe and time again they ceded possession to Galaxy, clearances usually found their way to the opposition and they found themselves under constant pressure as the defence was always lying to deep and the midfield was not in the right places to help out. It was only the lack of a decisive finisher saved Sevenoaks. If they had scored one then they may well have pushed on for more. Tornado did manage to make a few breaks but they were often careless in possession but they looked dangerous but again poor passing in the danger zone or careless finishing kept the scoreline at 1-0. It was not until half way through the second half that Tornado scored to ease the pressure on the team to create clear water between the two teams. Marcus Overd keeping his cool and control of the ball to make it 2-0.
The Visitors didn’t give up and kept pushing forward but they suffered for the lack of proper finishing. Sevenoaks had a number of good chances as the match edged towards its end but they were wasteful. The match ended somewhat chaotically with Sevenoaks failing to score from about four point blank shots whilst the goalkeeper was down injured. Another goal would have been unjust on their opponents. Last week Tornado did everything right, this week they made too many mistakes of their own making and were lucky not to be punished for it. They find themselves top of the league but will have to play better to keep that position.
