Reds U18s crash out of the Cup

U18s failed to take their chances

Game started off well with Reds playing the first half with the wind behind them.

The Reds looked comfortable on the ball but as the first half progressed the youngsters' failure to take their chances proved costly.

Aaron Porthouse, Macauley Sharp, Luke Davidson and Luke Mitchell all had very good chances to score but didn't and that was ultimately the story of the game.

On 25 minutes a Senhouse striker collected a pass on the left side of the area and smashed the ball into Reds' net to open the scoring.

Five minutes later and the Reds were two down and with six minutes to go before the half-time break Senhouse had made it three.

With the Reds youngsters missing their chances and Senhouse taking theirs, the lads came in at half-time disappointed.

At the start of the second half Reds made three changes with Aston Reynolds, Cameron Harker and Leo Holiday all coming on and with the Reds now playing into the wind had to fight to try to get back into the game.

Within ten minutes of second-half Senhouse scored their fourth but the Reds kept playing and they pulled a goal back when Aston Reynolds picked the ball up in the area, turned his man and fired the ball into the net. Finally, a chance for the Reds that went in.

With thirty minutes gone in the half, a ball was played into Reds box that Jordan Winthrop appeared to deal but the referee blew for a penalty claiming handball.

The converted penalty made it 5-1 to Senhouse but the Reds still kept going working hard and made chances for Ryan Byren and Matty Bryden, both coming close with their efforts.

Aston Reynolds then got his second goal of the day when the ball fell for him in the area and his smashed shot at the keeper was too strong to keep out.

Senhouse finished the game off with a goal after a good pass split the Reds defence for a Senhouse player fired it past keeper' David Ousby to finish the game off 6-2 to Senhouse.

The Reds lads worked hard throughout but missed chances proved their downfall.
