Under 18s Friendly - Blackstones v Soham

7 years ago, By STRFC

Blackstones U18's 2 v Soham U18's 2 Thursday 24/07/08 Soham had to come from behind to earn a draw against enthusiastic and tough opponents, in a game that was held up for 20 minutes at half time following an accidental injury to the Stones keeper.

Rangers started slowly and sloppy defending allowed the home side a two goal lead within 20 minutes. Gradually the Greens took control with Jake Fuller and Ollie Drake prominent in midfield. It was Fuller who pulled one back for the visitors on the half hour with a well struck shot from the edge of box and almost immediately Drake headed over from Carmen's cross. Sohams best move involved a dynamic run down the right from Drake, whose final cut back somehow could not be turned in by either Riches or Carmen. Within minutes of the re-start Cook flicked on Sterna's throw and Carmen eluded two defenders to drive home the equaliser. Rangers dominated the rest of the period but the Stones were always dangerous on the break and twice Chamberlain was called upon to make top draw saves. Both sides hit the post, with Stevens clever flick being the effort for Soham. Overall a good work out and on the overall balance of play the draw was a fair result. Good individual displays from Jake Fuller and Jamie Chamberlain. Chamberlain, Miller (Smart), Burr, Norton, Davis (S. Sterna), Drake (Seymour), Fuller, D. Sterna (Cook), Riches (Hill), Carmen, Suttle (Stevens)
