Under 11B East
Ebbsfleet United White ( 5 ) v ( 0 ) Halls AFC
Under 12 London Cup
Halls AFC ( 1 ) v ( 10 ) HF Sports Cobras
The scoreline here didn't quite reflect the game.... It was a cup match where C division Halls met A division Cobras. And what a first half we had....despite going 0-1 down midway through the half, the boys determination and persistence shone through as they probed away with attacks to counter their opposition. And a free-kick from just outside the box gave Harry James the perfect chance to level the scores, and he did. BANG straight in! 1-1. We had matched them for the first half, but against the hill - and an even more fired up opposition - it was all one way traffic in the second half. A goal after 30 seconds and that was it for the match... Nearly lads, you gave it your best today and even had them on the ropes at one stage!!
Under 13C East
Halls AFC ( 9 ) v ( 2 ) Hayden Youth
Another impressive match for Rob and Paul's Under 13s. They took a very early lead, and extended it to 3-0 before the Hayden boys had even kicked-off. They did posh some spells and attacks themselves and nicked a goal for 3-1 before half-time. They were shell-shocked though and Rob's boys had attacked quick and hard and saw goals all-round the team again today. Impressive boys!!
Under 15C East
Halls AFC ( 2 ) v ( 2 ) Crayford Arrows
This was 5th v 2nd, and after meeting earlier in the season and coming away disappointed with a 1-3 loss (and we should have been 3-0 up at half-time) there were scores to settle here. The Halls boys started brightly and with some great rotations of the squad, the team quickly adapted and found themselves 1-0 up midway through the half with a goal from the reliable James Lee. 1-0. It stayed like it until half-time, and despite Crayford hitting the post twice, we had deserved the lead. A gritty display! Crayford did respond however, and scored soon after the break for 1-1, but it was soon cancelled out with top goal-scorer Nathan coming off the bench to score a trademark run and finish. 2-1 Halls. And we let this game slip with just 30 seconds on the clock, with a ball into the box not cleared, and nodded home for a late late equaliser. Drama, and a good game of football for two sides battling it out at the top of the table!
St Mary Cray Athletic ( 18 ) v ( 0 ) Halls AFC ouch!
Week 14 is coming and Christmas is getting close......
