Division 2 Team
Mr. Johnson’s U11 Boys Football Team (Division 2) played this week away at DCSG. This is now the team’s third match together and the boys are looking a force to be reckoned with.
The first match was against a tough and strong DCSG. The boys played well but just couldn’t find the net in the first half. In the second half, Teun fired in a curling corner that fell on to Brian’s right foot and he hit it with power into the top corner giving the Goal Keeper very little chance. What a screamer!! Brian’s first Goal for the school and an absolute belter it was.
Final Result: 1-0 to Dover Lions
In the second match, the Lions played GEMS. This was a tricky game as GEMS kept applying lots of pressure, but with some sleek and astounding talent from our Captain Haru, who scored a 10 yard screamer, the team then started to find their form and a further two goals were scored.
Final Score: 3-0 to Dover Lions
In the Final Match, the boys joined up with Mr. Handley’s Division 3 team as the Dover Lions took on the CIS. With lots of alterations to positions happening from the coaches, the boys took a while to gel. However, with a few minutes to go, shots were firing in from all angles and the Lions scored two fine goals from Shoei and Haru.
Final Result: 2- 1 to Dover Lions
Division 3 Team
Mr. Handley's Dover Court Boys continued their undefeated run this season with two fine performances on a wet afternoon at DCSG.
The team's first match was played against DCSG E who had a couple of good chances to score themselves, forcing some excellent saves from the ever reliable Samuel in goal. However, after some exceptional build up play in the midfield, it was Shoei, on his season debut for DCIS, who scored his first goal of the season from close range. The match finished 1-0 with some great performances across the whole team.
For the second match of the afternoon, Dover were to meet league newcomers ISS, with several changes made to the teams line up. In what was a hard fought match littered with chances, it was Emil's thunderous effort from range that sealed the win for the boys - a neat dribble and superb strike to finish.
As only 2 fixtures were scheduled for Mr. Handley's Division 3 team, the boys were then afforded a rare opportunity to join forces with Mr. Johnson's Division 2 team for their final fixture of the afternoon against the CIS. With such a wide range of excellent players to choose from, Mr. Johnson decided to field a mixture of both teams throughout the match, rotating his players frequently. All the boys showed some great quality throughout the contest, with Connor and Alfonso both creating chances. However, it was Shoei once again coming up with the goals, bagging 2 for himself in the match.
Overall, an excellent performance from both teams. The afternoon's success sees Mr. Handley's side extend their winning streak to 4 matches this season. Well done to all the boys!
This Thursday, from 4.30pm, we will be hosting the U11 Football games here at DCIS. We look forward to seeing all our Mums and Dads for this one. Roaaarrrr Lions!!
