Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on October 18, 2006
EB Lions U9 - 4
61FC U9 - 2
Adam Bradley and Neel Slatter scored for the Lions and Murray put two in the net for 61FC, as well as having a couple of near misses. Good defensive play by the Lions kept 61FC at bay during the second half and there was some excellent midfield play, especially from Dom Ryan, who came close to scoring. Lions got more shots on goal - two hitting the post and two crossing the line - making it 4:2 to Lions and a hat-trick for Slatter at the final whistle. Slatter took the Lions' man of the match award.
Eaton Bray Lions U13 - 3
Houghton Regis Youth U13 - 8
Within seconds the Lions were attacking and the early pressure from a corner led to Gus Thorne giving the home team a 1-0 lead with a superb strike. Houghton came back immediately with long balls through the middle for the forwards to pick up on and equalize. End to end action set the tone for the rest of the first half with Lions managing to go 2-1 up after a simple tap in on the near post by Jonnie Moriarty. Houghton came out fighting and equalized in a minute with a superb long range shot. Despite Jonnie getting a second goal for the Lions, it was Houghton that ran out eventual winners by scoring a total of seven goals in this half. MOM Jonnie Moriarty.
