Sarnia FC U10 (Chelsea) competed against Sarnia FC U9's

May 29, 2012

On a very warm night for soccer, Sarnia FC (Chelsea) was back in Lambton Kent District soccer action playing their Club rivals Sarnia FC U9's. Chelsea had a bye the previous week and the boys were very anxious to get back into competition!
Both teams started strong, with high intensity, obviously not affected by the heat. Some good scoring opportunities arose on both sides of the pitch but strong goal keeping denied most chances. Chelsea had numerous scoring attempts but the U9 defense prevailed and began to frustrate the U10 forwards. It wasn't until the 30th minute of action that the scoreless tie would be broken. A beautiful clearing kick by Chelsea keeper Andrew Harron, would send Striker Mateo Troiani free on goal and he wouldn't be denied as he pounded the ball into the left corner of the U9 net. The goal seemed to fluster the young U9 squad and you could begin to see their optimism diminish. Chelsea would add two more quick goals by mid-fielder Kyle Flamminio to close out the half.
In the second half, Chelsea began to dominate possession making some beautiful passing combinations. Three additional goals were scored (Dominic Krasinkiewicz 2 and Ryan Janssens 1) putting the game out of reach. Chelsea played a strong game defensively with superb effort from the back four ( Alex Newall, Christian D'Agostini, Dean Palimaka and Ivan Lange). Chelsea rookies Matthew Gouveia and Justin Torti also played exceptionally strong creating many scoring chances. Finally, mid-fielders Tristen Konrad , James Brown and striker Jimmy Simpson all showed tremendous skill and effort attributing to the successful outcome. Chelsea now travel to Strathroy to compete in their first tournament of the season (Middlesex United).


Final Score: Sarnia FC (Chelsea) 6 - Sarnia FC U9's 1 .
