SALTS U17 4 - 1 DEWSBURY RANGERS
Toughest opponents yet . . .
The U17s faced their toughest opponents yet and produced their best display of the season (so far!). The visitors were strong and quick in all departments and had two excellent strikers who drew superb performances from our Central defensive trio of Jake, David and Matthew Padgett.
After 10 minutes a great through ball from Nathan split the Dewsbury defence for Nat to run through and score with a rocket from just inside the box. The game was very even and Salts got a break when a driven free kick from Jake evaded everyone to find the bottom corner.
After the break Dewsbury still fought hard and for 20 minutes made a real game of it. Then Salts produced the move of the game passing the ball from left to right through defence and mid-field to find the over lapping Jamie Mitchell who carried the ball deep into the Dewsbury half. An interchange of passes with Will and Alex led to the ball driven across the 6-yard line for Finlay to finish.
Salts then made some changes with 20 minutes to go and in the confusion the visitors pulled one back. Any thoughts of a comeback were dispelled when Nat scored his second after great battling in the penalty area.
