Room for improvement for the youth teams
BHR U16s 1 - 5 Stones Athletic
The Under 16’s played Ingatestone at home which saw a fairly even 1st half with scores level @ 1 apiece. Then, in 40 minutes of madness, a flurry of yellow cards and Rovers shipped 4 goals. Herbie scored our only goal of the game from the penalty spot.
Blackmore 5 - 1 BHR U14s
The U14's slow start to the season continued. Again creating plenty of chances but also gifting the opposition their 5 goals.
Plenty more positives than the previous two weeks, half the team showed up this week against 3 -4 the first two weeks.
We scored the goal of the game with a finely worked goal finished off by Jake Cooper. Quick forward play into the channel by the impressive Josh Hall set hard-working Oscar Tooke into space, he lifted his head wisely to put it on a plate for Jake to finish.
BHR U12s 2 - 4 Hutton Y Blue
Having started the last 2 games well and not making the most of their dominance, the U12s started slow this week - and paid the price. A lacklustre performance meant we went in at half-time 4 goals down.
The second half saw slightly better performance. A fantastic top-corner free kick from Callum Webb gave the boys the belief they could get back into the game. A late strike from Albert Gillespie made the score respectable but it was too little too late. Three straight defeats for a team much better than their current form.
Chelmsford City 3 - 3 BHR U11s
We played a very good footballing side who put us under a lot of pressure, we were fortunate to go in at halftime 1-1, scoring a breakaway against the run of play. Second half Chelmsford City took a well-deserved 3-1 lead. Despite not playing very well as a team our u11s showed character to grind out a 3-3 draw. Hat-trick from Miller Teasel, good performance and two assists from Toby Pass. Great performance from Riley Simmance in goal who made some great saves.
Hatfield Peverel 8 - 0 BHR U9s
Although the scoreline suggests a thumping, when you break it down the performance was good. The team did not let their heads go down and were still attacking their end of the pitch till the final whistle and each one of them had a smile on their face, which their manager commended us for. A few silly goals we gave away contributed to their goals, however, a few of theirs were unstoppable.
BHR U8s 4 - 8 Dunmow Rovers Lions
The game was more competitive than the scoreline suggests, some excellent keeping by Harwood kept us in the game another hat trick hero in Simmance, including our first-ever headed goal (controversial I know), the boys were positive till the end and all played their part.
A second friendly game of the season for the U7 team against Heybridge swifts. A great, hardworking performance against a strong and tough-tackling Heybridge side and the first game in BHRFC colours for a couple of the boys. Nicely taken goal by Jacob Williams in his first start for the club.
