Carib work hard for the win
An excellent & very determined team display by Carib U9’s finished with yet another win against a hard-working Croft Royals today.
In a first half full of chances, Carib struck first when Rayan Alhawas finished confidently from a Che Hassain assist to make it 1-0. More chances & some strong tackles came to both teams but the half-time score remained 1-0.
A bright start & an early goal in the second half set the tone when Kush Walters hit a hopeful free-kick from the halfway line into the box. It somehow managed to evade everyone & ended in the back of the net for a 2-0 lead to Carib before Croft pulled one back. Another Carib goal followed when Nile Hassain was bought down in the penalty box and scored from the resulting penalty.
Carib did not have it all their own way and only a Man of the Match performance from Motassim Suleman along with some excellent work from Isaiah Thomas-Lindsey & Kye Johnson-Jeffrey kept the opposition at bay.
As the match came to it’s close, Ahmed Chaouali got in on the action with Carib’s fourth goal after a great pass by Motassim Suleman. Croft didn’t give up & managed a late consolation to finish what was a very exciting match.
Goal of the Day – Ahmed Chaouali
Man of the Match – Ahmed Chaouali
