Rugby Town U10 Puma’s sponsored by Ideal Factory hosted Rugby Town Tigers in a tight match that neither team wanted to lose.
In the first half, there was very little between the two sides, as neither team was allowed too much time on the ball, The Pumas arguably had the better of the first half creating a number of chances, and managed to convert one of these through Alex Duffy. Defensively The Puma’s looked comfortable, and were able to prevent any powerful strikes coming through to their goalkeeper.
The second half saw a change in The Puma’s positions, as Alex was brought up into mildfield and Charley B to Centre Forward as The Puma’s sought to create that second goal. Unfortunately this didn’t quite work out and whilst The Puma’s looked more creative going forward this left gaps for The Tigers to exploit. The game came alive in the last 10 minutes, as The tigers equalised, and then went ahead. This would have been more had it not been for two excellent saves from Jamie in The Puma’s goal, one a top corner finger-tip deflection over the bar from a free kick! The Pumas scored a further goal in the dying minutes through Birthday Boy Charley, but there is much to work on at training!
