Bervie beat Colts

Bervie Caley U12 3 Colony Colts 1

Bervie started brightly with Bellu winning the ball in the centre of the pitch and playing in Smith on the right wing who in turn squared the ball for Blacklaw to prod home to give Bervie an early lead.

Despite Bervie having the lion’s share of possession the defence had to be on their toes and Bland in particular was putting in a fine display with some towering headed clearances.

The second half saw further chances go Bervie’s way however a combination of poor finishing and good goalkeeping saw the score remain 1-0. Against the run of play Colony Colts got back on level terms.

The home side did not have long to wait to regain the lead. A long range effort by Blacklaw was blocked by a defender and Smith was on hand to fire low into the net.

Bervie scores a third and decisive goal. Dawson won the ball in the middle of the pitch feeding Blacklaw who crossed for the on rushing Dawson to fire home on the half volley.

Bervie continued to look for goal number four breaking forward with pace however Dawson, Blacklaw and Anderson’s efforts were all well saved by the visiting keeper.

Bervie’s man of the match was Bland who produced an excellent performance at the back working well with the ever reliable Davies and Avis. However there were also fine performances from Wood and Dawson on the wings and the returning Blacklaw who had a hand in all three Bervie goals.
