Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on March 20, 2007
Eaton Bray Lions U8 - 3
Leagrave Orange U8 - 1
The first half was exciting with Luton Leagrave dominant in attack initially, stopped on two occasions by Jack Nevitt in goal for the Lions.
Jack Cook showed exceptional skills cutting in from the wing to score a cracking goal with his right foot for the Lions to go one up at half time.
The second half saw Luton Leagrave equalising in the first minute only for Dylan Karavadra to score an opportunist goal for the Lions to go 2-1 up.
This was quickly followed by a superb free kick from Jack Cook to see the Lions achieve a 3-1 win against a team halfway up the league. MoM was deservedly awarded to Cook.
The squad comprised Jack Cook, Thomas Rainbow, Charles Gamble, Jack Nevitt, James Pratt, Archie Bunker, Dylan Karavadra and Elliot Whitcombe.

The Lions began slowly and it was no surprise when Luton took the lead, firing home a corner from close range.
Towards the end of the half Lions got their passing game together. Jayden Newman and Ellis Turrell create an opening for captain William Poole. William finished well flicking the ball past the advancing keeper to equalise.
The Lions started the second half much brighter and took the lead.
Crunching tackles from Jayden and Ellis won the ball for Matt Glover who went on an excellent run past a couple of defenders before firing in a low shot. The Lions continued to play well but couldn't find the third goal.
Charlie Slater was close with a header from a Lions' corner. Luton pressed for an equaliser and with two minutes remaining they scored an excellent goal when an out-swinging corner was volleyed in by their captain.
