Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on February 15, 2007
Watling Youth U13 - 4
EB Lions U13 - 2
Lions survived an early attack by Watling and won a corner from which Lee Cavendish's header shot just over the bar.
Lion's substitute goalie, Gus Thorne, made an embarrassing mistake and let a weak shot trickle through his legs to give Watling their first goal. However, he played brilliantly for the rest of the match, although his goal-scoring ability was sorely missed.
Both teams put on a display of exciting football and Watling scored their second just before half-time.
Watling looked the more dangerous side after the break and soon scored two more but Lions fought back, threatening to score from several excellent corner kicks by Jonnie Moriarty.
Cavendish made at least three more headers on target but all were blocked on the line. The small pitch worked to Lions' advantage when James Thiel struck a huge kick from within Lions' half which sailed past Watling's goalie.
A curling shot by Jack Coates missed the top corner by inches but he scored Lions' second minutes later.
This was a thoroughly entertaining match and Lions' MoM was Josh Gradley.
