Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on March 23, 2009
EB Lions U11 - 0
Mid Beds Tigers U11 - 8
League leaders Mid Beds moved another step closer to clinching the division on Sunday at the expense of a resolute but ultimately out gunned Lions side. The hosts were on level terms for the opening ten minutes and maintained a goal threat through forwards Dominic Ryan, Ben Roberts and Aarin Juster, but by degrees the visitors' confidence established itself and a flourish of goals landed before the half time break.
Making their defensive debuts, Will Petherbridge and Aaron Gauntlett conducted themselves impressively, driving home every challenge and alongside Aarin Johnson and Alex Poynter worked well to protect keeper Dan Kennell, who produced a series of eye-catching saves.
During the second half, a mobile unit of midfielders comprising Mason Ashby, Chris McGee, Sean Woodhouse and MoM Charlie Nevitt were instrumental in making forward progress, but were overcome by the structured plays and organised passing of an impressive Mid Beds team.
