Kettering u14 v Coventry
"KTFC u14 returned to JPL action this morning at home to league leaders and arguably one of the best sides we’ve played this season, Coventry City SB looking to avenge a 4-3 defeat back in November.
Both sides from the off tried to put on a good show, however a bobbly pitch made sure the players touch and concentration was tested.
The first half was a really hard fought game with both sides excellent defences nullifying each other, chances were few and far between. KTFC did have the ball in the net just before HT, however a correct offside decision meant the sides went in at 0-0.
The second half followed the same pattern as the boys to their credit handled the tough surface very well.
On 50 minutes CC took the lead via a long distance strike. This setback seemed to lift KTFC who struck back via Matty headed goal on 55 minutes from a well worked set piece we’d discussed in training and before the game (love it when a plan comes together!!).
The game was now wide open with neither team wanting to give an inch... a hard, physical battle saw both sides give it everything.
On 65 minutes KTFC fortuitously took the lead when a strike from distance by Sam E caught CCFC keeper napping as the ball bounced over him and in.
The final 10 minutes saw CCFC throw everything at KTFC. but as with the prev 70 mins KTFC stood firm to gain their best win of the season.
