Greetings to all Galaxy faithfuls, this past weekend saw us playing away with our junior divisions on Saturday. We visited Happy Swallows at Block GG where we played against their Under 13, 17 and 19.
U13 we lost the match by four goals to one, whilst at U17 we beat them by four goals to nil. Under 19 lost by three goals to nil. Under 17 also did well to come back from behind to beat Blackpool by four goals to three after trailing two nil at Block WW this Monday.
A below par performance by our Under 13 as they played like they had seen a ghost. Some of the players will need to grow a heart of steel if they are to challenge for honours in the league. It was therefore not lack of skill but lack of courage that saw them lose by that margin.
Our Under 17 played the best football on the day as they converted the chances they had even though they were playing against very rough opponents (Happy Swallows). In their second match they did well to come back from behind and win but conceded very soft goals.
With our Under 19 one is still asking themselves questions as to how we lost to Happy Swallows as we dominated the game in terms of scoring chances and possession. Maybe it was an issue of tactical discipline when it came to defending as we kept on chasing our poles when under attack. But this all can be corrected moving forward.
I am glad to say our senior team did well on Sunday in their fourth league game against Tshepo Stars at Giant stadium. They beat them by 5 goals to 3 as they showed their fighting spirit coming back from a 3-1 deficit. Congratulations to David Lekota for scoring the team’s first official hatrick. So we can say now we have won two games out of four with a game in hand.
Last but not least, condolences to our senior team Head Coach Masala Mugaga on losing his nephew Karabo. We buried him this past Tuesday and may his soul rest in peace.
