YTCST U12s 3 V RTC NS 2
Simply an excellent advert for JPL football.
RTC North Somerset will be extremely disappointed to come away from this fixture empty handed after playing a major part in a thrilling game.
The away team started the stronger and forced YTCST back into their own half in the early stages, but some resolute defending and good team shape frustrated them. YTCST then grew into the game and started to spring some excellent counter attacks. As the game evened out chances started to arrive at both ends. In one 10 minute spell RTC NS were denied by both posts and an inspired performance from Callum Abbot in the home team goal. How they did not score in this spell was a mystery to all. YTCST to their credit remained a threat and created numerous chances for themselves in what was now an even and enthralling match. The game somehow reached half time at 0.0.
Now for a miraculous third period. Again NS came out strongly and this time were rewarded when taking the lead early on, this lead was quickly doubled and was well deserved. The home team lost their way for a while, but after refocusing started to come back into it. Step up Ashley Newman who pulled one back which inspired the team, it was now their turn to have a good spell. Now on top YTCST pushed forward and Ashley struck again to level the scores 2.2. Just as the quarter looked to end all square the home team forced a corner, Ashley who was now involved in everything played the ball in and it somehow snuck in at the front post with the keeper unsighted. Very unfortunate !!
The last 20 was pretty much a rear guard action for YTCST with RTC NS trying to force an equaliser but to no avail.
Both sets of coaches were exchanging views throughout,complimenting each other on what was a great game played in a great spirit. In all honesty a draw would have been a fair result.
Good luck guys for the rest of the season.
