Saturday morning the women’s team of Gentofte had their first game of the season. The game was against the young joint team of Slagelse/Kalundborg. First half started quickly for Gentofte scoring their first goal only after 25 seconds game. Then the opponents took control of the game in a period where Gentofte left the middle of the pitch quite open. Over a 10-minute period Slagelse/Kalundborg could make four goals. Before halftime Gentofte took one back and started to prioritize the center track again. 4-2 at half time. In the break the team changes the formation, and in the second half Slagelse/Kalundborg counld not go through the middle anymore. This meant that the ladies did not concede goals in the second half. Gentofte clawed in on the Slagelse/Kalundborg and with 15 minutes to go the ladies became level 4-4 in the game and with 5 minutes to go the ladies scored the decider 5-4. A game with a lot off fight and will to bounce back and take the 3 points.
Goal scorers was Delfina, Melisa, Coleen and Felicitas.
Thanks to the two umpires Martin and Niels for taking care of the game!
Already tomorrow Gentofte plays in Valby against Copenhagen in a postponed game. Good luck ladies!
After the women the Gentofte men entered the pitch. They were about to play a young strong Odin team. First half was an unstructured and unconcentrated one, where the team did not follow the lines for the tactic and in general the team looked not to be ready at the first whistle. In that perspective the men could look back at first half lucky only to be down 1-0.
In the break there were spoken with big words! The system was changes and also the substitution strategy. Gentofte came out with a much better attitude and will in the second half, and Gentofte took over. With two goals the men came in front 8 minutes before the end, but a late penalty corner and the play after the PC resulted in a goal for Odin to the result 2-2.
Also, thanks to Frigg and Ellen for umpiring the mens as well!
Man of the match was Kim, who temporarily replaced Asger in goal. The two goals were scored by Sandby.
Gentofte have 5 points after 3 games and are travelling behind after Odin and Slagelse both with 7 points. The mens play on Saturday in Gentofte before the clubs Oktoberfest against Marselisborg.
Our U14 went to Slagelse also Saturday – again without the normal coach because of the coach being occupied with his own game another place in Dk. The team got clobbered in both games, and we will in this week have a talk about what have to happen with the U14 team the rest of the season.
Sunday morning the U6 met at Gentofte Stadium for yet another open practice with Kom og vær med. 11 kids with their parents showed up and had a great morning with big smiles during and after the practice. Btw the kids won 10-3 over the parents.
We will keep on having practice on Sunday till 14th og October.
