U13 Blues back on top with great win

The Under 13 Blues returned to the top of the table............
The Under 13 Blues returned to the top of the table with a great display at Norham on Saturday morning. Corbridge were the opponents and the boys went straight to work when Harry sent a great ball through for Ben to collect and drive into the box. Ben's near post cross was met by a defender but the pace of the ball meant it was turned into the Corbridge goal. It was then Blake's turn with a few good runs down the left following good work from Will at left back, but it was a Corbridge defensive error which meant the ball fell to Blake on the edge of the box for him to grab Tynemouth's second as he calmly slotted home to the right bottom corner of the goal. It didn't take long for top goalscorer Sam to get into the action either, as Blake tenaciously charged down the defender and the ball bounced into Sam's path the slot home. Corbridge were restricted to half chances by the Tynemouth defence with Thomas and Martin taking complete control, allowing Daniel and Will to carry the ball forwards at will.
3-0 at half time. second half substitutes were Jack and Noah.
The second half , Sam picked up where he'd left off, after some superb work from Charlie P to win the ball and play into Ben , who had the awareness to pick out Sam who slotted home. Man of the Match Blake added a superb free kick before Sam picked out another two goals to make it 4 on the day. Just before full time Charlie , Ben and Will inked up well before Charlie put in an accurate cross, met by Will to get his first of the season.
A great display from everyone, clean sheets for Oscar and Noah, comfortable defensive performances and some great awareness, passing and hard work in midfield. Two games to go before the league shuffle and the boys are looking odds on for promotion. Well done!!!
