Under 9's Match Report

DCLFC U9’s v Sleetmoor.

Derby girls got off to a flying start with Tallulah scoring within the first few minutes.

There was some accurate passing between Keira, Niamh and Tallulah which left her free to score. The whole team were spot on with their passes this week, making sure they got where they needed to go and the score line reflected this.

Niamh was on top form, dribbling around players and running forward to score.

Lucia and Maya were absolutely solid in defence with Chloe, in goal, only touching the ball a few times in the first half.

Sleetmoor gave away a few corners, which gave Tallulah the chance to hammer them across the goal, with Derby making the most of their chances.

The girls were running all over the pitch, working hard to get forward and getting back quickly when they needed to. This week they showed some great teamwork, talking to each other and moving into, and making space.

Sleetmoor were stronger in defence in the second half, with their number 9 able to throw the ball halfway up the pitch if it went out! Chloe ran the ball through the defence a few times and managed to find the back of the net with lots of cheering from the parents!

Next weeks match is against Chellaston U10’s.
