LEAGUE CUP FINAL
By Neil Sutcliffe
DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE LADS
Not our day today. The U18s losing to YMCA in the League Cup Final.
A slow start saw us go behind but the lads battled back & got an equaliser through Ryan Clay
We then took the lead Ryan once again with a great finish.
Both teams had chances but it needed the YMCA keeper to pull off a double save to keep it 2-1 at half time.
Not long into the 2nd half & the scores were level.
We then had a great chance to go back in front but fluffed our lines. We then conceded a penalty to go 3-2 down & you could see the lift it gave our opponents & the shoulders drop on our lads.
YMCA looked stronger & fitter as the game went on.
pulled off 2 or 3 great saves to keep us in it but as the lads wilted in the heat YMCA got 3 more goals. A couple of them may have been contentious but they deserved their 6-2 win.
