U12's beaten by Fleet Town Lions 2 - 6
Winning streak comes to an end.
The U12’s had a tough game today against strong, well drilled opposition in the league cup 1st round. They panicked a bit in the first half, maybe a little intimidated by their 3rd division opposition, but then battled back hard in the second half. Ash got on the score board early in the match, with a fantastic curled cross from Steve Birch, which hit the top corner of the goal . Unfortunately, Fleet then retaliated with 4 quick goals during a phase of disjointed play from Ash. After a strong team talk at half time, Ash returned to the field a more determined team, and although losing out to another Fleet goal early on in the second half, Gabe Proctor managed to float a lovely cross into the box for Harry Warne
to connect with and score Ash's second for the match. Unfortunately, Fleet had a much stronger defence than the boys were used to, and this hampered their attack. Their winning streak had to come to an end at some point, but the boys shouldn’t be disappointed with their performance today.
