Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on April 24, 2007
EB Lions U13 - 0
Watling Youth U13 - 4
Initially the teams looked evenly matched, both forcing corners from good attacking play. It was fifteen minutes before Watling penetrated Lions' defence to score.
Watling's goalie blocked a shot by Morgan O'Connell and Lions failed to score from another three opportunities. Meanwhile, good tackling by Lee Cavendish and James Thiel and great work by goalie, Charlie Oliver, kept Watling at bay.
Just before half-time a Watling striker found himself with plenty of time to pick his spot for their second goal.
Frequent substitutions allowed both sides to keep the pace up in the warm conditions, and Watling made an impressive attack up the right wing to score their third. Watling's number 16 secured his hat-trick with a superb shot shortly afterwards.
Lions piled on the pressure up to the whistle, but they allowed Watling too much space midfield and couldn't match their opponents finishing skills.
Lee Cavendish was Lion's MoM.
