Ballymena United Youth Academy Under-13's faced Ballyclare Colts in the South Belfast Youth League on Saturday morning.
The Under-13 Sky Blues took on Ballyclare Colts on Saturday morning at Wakehurst. After a couple of weeks of good performances and not getting the results this was more hard work and determination from the boys to see this one through.
The first half saw Ballymena take a 2-0 lead with a Harry Duff free kick and an excellent finish by Joshua Stewart from a Corey Laverty assist. With Sam Rock impressing at centre half Ballymena kept Ballyclare at bay until just before half time they pulled one back.
In the second half we missed a few chances to kill the game before some last gasp defending kept Ballyclare out. With ten minutes left Ballyclare got their equaliser but the boys kept their heads and won the game with Joshua Stewart getting on the score sheet again with a minute or two to go.
All the hard work and determination from the group is paying off and on to the next week we go.
Goals: Harry Duff, Joshua Stewart 2
