Den­mark share spoils

Albany Extra - - Sport -

Den­mark signed off their year with what was also their best re­sult of the sea­son in the Al­bany Ju­nior Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion un­der-14s last Satur­day.

Play­ing cup fi­nal­ists Gram­mar, most were ex­pect­ing an easy re­sult for Gram­mar but Den­mark were up for the fight and re­ally took it to their op­po­nents.

Op­por­tu­ni­ties were far and few for Den­mark who played most of the match in their own half but with Ava Malata play­ing in the front line for Den­mark, it kept the Gram­mar de­fence on their toes as she chased down ev­ery ball putting them un­der im­mense pres­sure.

In de­fence, Den­mark cen­tre­back Tayah Mastalerz con­trolled her back line su­perbly in a player of the match per­for­mance that frus­trated the Gram­mar at­tack as the match fin­ish in a nil-all draw.

Gram­mar will be hop­ing they can get their shoot­ing boots back on when they take on John Calvin this Satur­day in the cup fi­nal.

Al­bany-Bayswa­ter played out a thrilling 2-2 draw against their cup fi­nal op­po­nents Polo­nia in the un­der-15s com­pe­ti­tion.

Dea­con Houghton had a great game in de­fence for Polo­nia and saved his side on a few oc­ca­sions but was un­able to do much against Ja­cob Grif­fin first and then a Fredrick Opuni equaliser.
