Cobras find the right way to keep winning

Whitley Bay Barca U9...3 Alnwick Town Cobras U9...4

NMSL U9

COBRAS started well in their encounter at Whitley Bay, with Archie Smith hitting a long-range shot which the keeper couldn’t hold.

But Barca came back on the break, catching the Cobras napping, to score an equaliser.

Both teams were battling well and Cobras managed to grab the equaliser. Jay McEwan played a lovely one-two with Marco McKinley on the edge of the area to slot the ball coolly past the keeper.

Barca were proving a hard side to break down and a defensive mistake let them in to level the score once again. Whitley Bay then took the lead through another mistake at the back, which prompted the Cobras to up their game.

A through-ball found Marco McKinley, who beat a defender and slotted the ball past the keeper. He was also on hand again to score the winner.

Managers K Smith and D Middleton were please with the team spirit and never-say-die attitude of a team who are proving hard to beat.
