Dorkinians Under 14's Win Ugly!

The last league home game of the season saw a committed and tenacious performance.

The last league home game of the season saw a committed and tenacious performance.

Dorkinians finally got to play Maidenbower Colts Red after their previous last minute postponement and without their top scoring striker being available.

Maiden bower have had a tough season but have been scoring goals in some close games recently. Maidenbower were first into their stride and it was Dorkinians that barely got a look in in the first 15 minutes. However Dorkinians have developed at the back this season, and Hersey, Wallace, Fisher and Hollinshead comfortably snuffed out any danger that the Colts Red could muster. McBride in goal had only a few shots to deal with the hardest aspect being the end of season pitch that meant the ball had to watched carefully into hands.

Dorkinians steadily started to create some space and opportunities through winning the mid field battle with Kinsey in particular taking the game to them but there was only one clear chance in the first half with the ball falling to Rivolta who skillfully slotted the ball to the right of the keeper only to see it rebound off the foot of the post. Half time came with the game level and with a goalless draw looking a real possibility.

The second half proved to be a much more one sided affair with Dorkinians getting fully into their stride and regularly applying pressure to the Colts Red back four who looked vulnerable when pressed. Hodgson was now playing up front with Goff moving to the right wing, the addition of speed and Goffs mid field presence and tackling helped to maintain Dorkinians superiority.

The break through came half way through the half with a series of corners, Dixon latching onto a great corner kick and volleying it home, some would say off his knee but they all count! Dorkinians continued to create chances with Rivolta making driving runs time and again and with Kinsey winning everything in the middle of the park the team moved the ball around more confidently. A couple of guilt edged chances went begging in the last 10 minutes for Dorkinians and the final whistle came without Maidenbower really looking dangerous in the second half.

Dorkinians ground out the win and secured their position in the league for next season with still an outside chance of finishing in the top three as they finish their season with an away fixture to the same team down at Maidenbowers ground in a few weeks time. Kinsey was player of the match for his battling midfield performance. Thanks as ever for the support from the touchline and to Stuart for his linesmans duties.
