Today Evo welcomed Kidderminster fir our first ever JPL meeting. Unfortunately the gusting wind made conditions tough for both sets of players.
It was evident early on that both teams committed numbers forward often. Kidderminster had the first real chance as the striker cut in forcing an excellent save from Seb in the Evo goal. Moments later, Harry Keen headed over from 8 yards for Evo. The game was very open, with some lovely technical skill on both sides.
Evo took the lead in a bizarre 30 seconds in the 2nd quarter. The home #1 scuffed his clearance from the left back area, the arriving Kidderminster player curled his effort towards the empty goal only for the home skipper to head off the line. Evo immediately broke, Leon Ross realised Devante H and the talented front man went around the keeper and finished neatly.
Regardless of the goal, the game remained even and visitors hit the post on the stroke of HT. 1-0
Evo started the 3rd quarter quite brightly and their pressure paid off with a fine goal. The overload was worked well down the right and Ben Whitson delivered a stunning volleyed cross, which (gold award) Harry Keen bravely headed home. 2-0
The visitors came out strongly for the last quarter and chances occurred at both ends. Kidderminster #9 fired over when well placed, before Devante went close twice for Evo.
Kidderminster got a late goal, well deserved for their efforts. A right wing cross deflected high into the Evo net.
The game ended 2-1. Huge credit to both lads for playing some adventurous stuff in tough conditions. The difference on the day was chances taken.
A good game.
Thank you to Luke, his players and all parents who travelled down from Kidderminster.
