DDFC 2-0 LSS FC
It was a match which has gone down in Dragons history.
The Dragons were dominating the game from the off and by the end of the first half, rarely allowing LSS the opportunity to cross the halfway line, despite both teams being able to be 1-0 up.
Despite a very technical opposition, DDFC played like finalists by winning their first, second and third chances of the ball. The whole team played with immense passion and structure to keep the pressure on. After both teams hitting the woodwork, the final whistle blew at 0-0, with the referee telling each team they had 5 minutes of extra time then penalties.
Coach Charlie and Daryl changed our formation of 3-2-1 to 2-2-2, in the hope we can win the Final in ET. The referee blew the whistle to start extra time and The Dragons marched up the field with great passing, until time stopped when George B struck the ball and hitting the back of the net. 1-0 DRAGONS!! After a crowd of nearly 100 people watched and cheered on, there was still a very long 4 minutes to play. LSS came back strong, attacking in numbers and producing fantastic long shots - the final minute, we got the ball up to the oppositions corner, crossed the ball high into the penalty area, only for The Dragons to volley in our second GOAL to go 2-0 up.
The referee blew the final whistle and around 40 players and parents ran on the field to celebrate our win. DDFC U8s WINNERS OF 2016/2017 CUP..
CONGRATULATIONS ALL - You made the club so proud!!!
