"We could have been out there all day and still wouldn't have won" A saying that many managers across time have said and one that rings true for Oakwood U9's after this weekends 3-2 defeat at the hands of Galaxy Thunder. If procession stats were available then we would have walked this game but it was in the final third that we just didn't deliver, that final pass, a shot sliced wide or blocked on the line - It was going to be one of those days. The lads played well. Take nothing away from them. The effort was there but we just couldn't find the back of the net. A great long range free kick from Alf and a well taken volley from Roman were just not enough for us to rescue a point. The response from the lads at the final whistle was lovely to see - they were hurting... they hate losing...... We learn. WE go again next week.
