Our young Development team shared 10 goals with City of York 10th team in an exciting and excellent game at Huntington School.
We went behind within 2 minutes, but Jack Hartley equalised almost straight away following a run down the right from Andrew Marshall.
York then dominated the remainder of the first half scoring 4 more goals mainly due to our loose marking and defensive error. We pulled one back just before half time when Andrew scored with a good strike from the top of the "D".
Jack Holcombe played well in the first half and helped create a number of chances that were not converted.
We made a tactical change at half time, moving Man of the Match Oliver DeRoeck to mark the dangerous York right winger who had created havoc in the first half and this proved a turning point.
The game went from end to end, but our re-organised defence kept York at bay and we took the advantage with Jack completing his hat-trick and Andrew scoring his second.
With two late injuries , we were reduced to 10 men but with the score at 5 all, the Umpires stopped the game with 2 minutes to go because the pitch was starting to freeze and become dangerous.
