Outstanding performance by City's U12 Girls in 3-3 draw at home with Denbigh
Dominant Bangor City U12 Girls held to draw by Denbigh
Outstanding performance by Bangor City FC U12 Girls this morning in their North Wales Girls League Home fixture V Denbigh!!! Excellent showing from the girls in a close and highly competitive match which eventually finished 3-3!!!
The 1st half was dominated by wave after wave of Bangor attack as the girls won the ball from the opposition quickly and then looked to attack and play forward immediately. Despite Bangor's superiority Denbigh took the lead against the run of play, however an excellent response from the girls ensured this lead didn't last long as more great interplay between Reaghan Smith; Cerys Parry and Charley Marr saw Reaghan draw the scores level from close range after another sweeping attack.
Soon after Cadi Roberts gave Bangor the lead with her 1st goal for the club as she finished from a corner. However, failure to make the most of their dominance and convert a myriad of chances created in the 1st period, Denbigh were able to equalise before half-time to deny Bangor a deserved lead!!!
The 2nd half was far more keenly contested than the 1st as Denbigh pressed Bangor higher up the pitch, attempting to prevent the girls playing their football but they we're unable to contain Bangor's girls for a full 30 minutes as Reaghan picked up the ball on the right, drove inside her defender and played in top scorer Cerys who converted to make it 3-2.
Continuing to play their football Bangor had chances to make the game safe but were unable to finish or find the pass in the final third and with just minutes to go paid the price for the lack of clinical touch in front of goal as the opposition came from behind for the 2nd time in the match to snatch a late draw!!!
Elin Jones was player of the match for Bangor who had another great game at the back and finished the last 10 minutes in goal and Managers Player of the Match was Cadi Roberts who worked tirelessly closing down the opposition and scored her 1st goal for the club!!! Brilliant performance by the whole team, well done girls keep up the hard work great to see the development each week!!!
