Match Day 8



Here we were for the last league game of 2018 looking to remain unbeaten after a brilliant league campaign.
Not such a cheery day weather wise, the cold and damp could have been a speed bump in the road for SAS U12s.
Attenborough Colts U12 were the opponents for today turning up off the back of 2 straight defeats but still in god spirit and looking to spoil the party.
It was a tentative start to the game from both teams as they felt their way into the game.
In part, due to the weather, and for SAS most likely due to the raft of changes to the lineup.
After 5 or 6 minutes SAS began to get the upper hand pushing Attenborough back. The usual flow wasn't really there though and Attenborough on occasions were looking dangerous themselves and should have taken the lead in the 8th but for bad luck with the effort.
This spurred SAS into mode and 2 gilt edged chances for Kelvin Enoma, (both 1 on 1 situations) should have resulted in SAS taking the lead but for a lack of composure.
The deadlock was broken though on 13 mins through Jamal Bennett when he poked home from close range after good work from Oluafemi Efuwape.
1 quickly became 2 after 18 minutes again through Jamal Bennett.
This time combination play from Oluafemi Efuwape and Tayonne Thomas led to an opportunity for Jamal to place the shot into the bottom right giving the keeper no chance.
Cruising now SAS raced to 3 after 22 minutes through Tayonne Thomas' excellent mazy run and finish.
Complacency came back to bite SAS straight away as the boys started to go through the motions.
Good goals from Attenborough, the first a free header from a corner and a long range effort that may be should have been dealt with brought the edge back to the game before half time.
Things got worse for SAS after the break with Attenborough visibly buoyed and going for the jugular.
Proceedings began to resemble that of a basketball game going back and forth.
On 37 mins SAS conceeded a penalty which was dispatched with aplomb and the tide of turn saw Attenborough go ahead after 44 mins after a defensive mix up allowed their striker a 1 on 1 which was slid into the right of the goal past the advancing keeper for the second half Oluafemi Efuwape.
This prompted some changes and switching of positions from SAS management which had the desired effect immediately.
The fire was back and the play was much better. For the fist time in the game SAS were winning the 50/50 challenges and the 2nd balls.
Unlucky with a few attempts SAS drew level through Juste Locke Nguette.
Great work again through combination play from Oluafemi Efuwape and Jamal Bennett created a chance for Tayonne Thomas to score but his shot cannoned back down off the bar.
Luckily Juste was there to head home the rebound on 52 mins and set up a frantic finish.
Chances came and went, none more so than in the last minute with a 4 on 1 situation when what should have been the winner resulted in bad decision making and a lack of composure with the finish.
An exciting game for the neutral spectator but for SAS a lesson in complacency.
They did though show the character to not be overwhelmed in adversity resulting in an undefeated campaign.
Amazing effort from the boys.
