Patience pays off as Carib win big!
A slow start almost proved costly for Carib U9’s & only a second half rally got them through what turned out to be a tough & entertaining match.
Coalville took the lead after 5 mins & doubled it on 12 mins as Carib looked exposed every time Coalville attacked. A well timed goal by Mo Abdulzahra just before half-time was just what Carib needed to mount a fantastic comeback.
An early goal in the second half from Jonathan Lenga, followed quickly by a third from Josh Readdie & fourth by Wafiq Ali really got Carib off to a good start but the match was still in the balance and the rotating defensive team of Felix Djossou, Angelo Perdomo, Isaiah Thomas-Lindsey, Kye Johnson-Jeffrey & Ahmed Chaouali were all tested and did very well.
A late own-goal & a second from Lenga secured the win but the final 6-2 scoreline certainly didn’t reflect how competitive the match was & both teams should be very proud of their performance.
Goal of the Day – Josh Readdie
Man of the Match – Jonathan Lenga
