George United plays good football
This past weekend saw the penultimate week of fixtures for the George United Football Club youth football tournament with all the ages groups getting fiercely competitive for positions and each point of vital importance. In the Under 12 section, the first game was between 1st place Leopards and 3rd place Feyeenoord in a tight and highly physical game, between two sides that didn't want to give an inch to the opposition. The game changer in this match was Arian Ourteav who made the most of the few chances he had and went on to score twice for the leopards winning the game 2-0, keeping up the frantic place at the top of the league.
With Rangers taking all three points in thier game to keep the pressure on the Leopards it makes the mid week meeting between Leopards and Rangers a must win for both teams.
The following fixture was a match of excellent football and high drama between Falcons and 7 Stars with both teams liking to take control of the match and keep possesion of the ball, it was all about who did this better in this tight contest. 7 Stars took early control of the game scoring twice and looked to have the game all but won, until Falcons began to fight back and made numerous chances to score but sadly were unable to finsih most of them Thanks to some desperate defending 7 Stars won the game 2-1.
The final game was a close one between Ramaposa and Cobras. Cobras have developed so much this past few weeks and have begun to show the promise that their players have, and what a threat to the big teams they can and will be in up coming tournaments with gritty and determined perfromnces like this week, that earned them a 1-1 draw against a side that likes to out work and out perfrom teams. This is a result that the Cobras can take great pride in.
With the final games take place next Saturday, 12th May, there will be lots of twists and turns in these age groups. With all the players looking forward to the knock out cup competition over the next few weeks in order to build them up before the big regional tournament to be hosted by George United Football Club and Tekkie Town over the Youth Day weekend at Outeniqua stadium.
