Sarnia FC U10 Chelsea defeated Chatham
July 4, 2012 

Sarnia FC Chelsea travelled down Highway 40 to face the Chatham Attack U9's on Monday evening. It was another warm night for soccer as the temperature was hot and humid.

This was the first meeting between the two district teams. Chelsea opened the game strong and controlled the ball forcing most of the play in the Chatham end. In the 10th minute of action, Chelsea Striker Ryan Janssens would cross the ball into the Chatham 18 yard box and fellow Striker Jimmy Simpson would control the ball and blast it past the U9 keeper. A few minutes later, Sarnia forward Mateo Troiani would play the give and go with mid-fielder Dominic Krasinkiciewicz who placed the perfect ball back to Troiani who finished with a neat toe shot into the corner of the Chatham goal. The Attack would get one back soon after to come within one. At the dying end of the first half Chatham would equalize when their mid-fielder would find some space and hammer the perfect shot behind a sprawling Chelsea keeper. Teams went into the half tied at two.
The second goal seemed to ignite the drive in the Attack as they came out hard in the opening minutes of the new half. Their fortitude was rewarded as they would convert a breakaway chipping the ball over the Sarnia goalie. Chelsea seemed stunned at the events at hand but re-grouped and mounted some offence of their own. Continuous pressure was applied by Sarnia which resulted in the equalizer. Mid-fielder, Kyle Flamminio would not be denied as his determination who lead to a great goal. At an almost impossible angle he would fire the ball with his left foot into the corner of the goal. With the game tied Chelsea pushed forward for the go-ahead goal. The Chatham U9 keeper stood tall and strong stopping shot after shot. Sarnia would be rewarded with two penalty kicks a few minutes apart and the Attack goalie denied both attempts. As the game winded down, Chelsea striker Mateo Troiani would take the ball and find his way past the Chatham defence finishing with the perfect shot over the outstretched hands of the Chatham keeper sending Sarnia to their seventh win of the season.

A strong performance by all players on the pitch, giving parents and fans an exiting evening of soccer!
Final Score: Sarnia FC Chelsea 4 - Chatham Attack (U9) 3 .
Chelsea's next game is Tuesday July 10th vs. Sarnia FC Madrid.
