Finally, Michael Pieri’s Under 12 White came back from 3-1 down at half time to run out impressive 8-3 winners. It was indeed the proverbial game of two halves!

Before the goals starting raining in, it is worth acknowledging that two excellent saves in the first half by Stefanos Pieri kept the deficit to two goals. Panos Chambi was the goal scoring hero, netting five second half goals and was rightly awarded the Man of the Match award. Anthony Fereos, Andreas Fereos and Alfonso Rosselli got the other goals.

A special mention to Zeno Vryonides’ Under 9 Green for the brilliant development they have shown this year. Parents and coaches are very proud of their progress. Well done!
