Bearsted Under 18s 3 Whitstable Town 2

Kent Youth League Under 18 (South)

Sunday 26th October 2014

Whitstable Town Under 18s started strongly and were a handful on the counter with both Rivera and Hegedus going close in the first ten minutes of game.  Bearsted started to get more possession and went close on a couple of occasions but Charlie Hills in the Town goal pulled off two breath taking saves. However after 25 minutes Town broke with pace and purpose and Hegedus hit a twenty yarder into the top corner of the net to put them into the lead. Bearsted started to push for the equaliser and were rewarded with a goal from close range after 33 minutes. With Bearsted seeing more possession, Town still looked dangerous on the counter with Dale, Rivera,and Wallis going close but it was Bearsted who took the lead after forty minutes with a well worked goal. After the restart, Town started to have some possession of their own and were rewarded for their efforts on the stroke of halftime when Dale drilled a great strike into the top left hand corner of the net to make the half time score 2-2.

Town started the second half on the attack and had a shot from Wallis cleared of the line and Rivera had a attempt that cannoned off the upright. Town looked the only team in this game in the second half but could not finish their chances and reduced Bearsted to one free kick that hit the crossbar. However Town once again in the 88th minute of the match conceded a last gasp goal. This was not the end for town they still had time for one last chance when Fairweather poked the ball just wide of the near post from a Dale corner.

It was a excellent performance from the lads if they keep showing that level of performance we will start to pick up points.

Team: Hills, Austin, Wickham, Okwudinka, Fairweather, Wallis, Dale, Bonetti, Rivera,  Alshamri, Hegedus.
