U18 Park Win 11 Goal Thriller
Following on from last weeks excellent win U18 Park contnued their momentum, only just, by beating Hawley Park.
Ashridge dominated the first quarter playing great passing football and also closing down their opponents limiting them to shooting from outside the box. The only surprise was that it took 28 minutes before a goal was scored. Danny opened the scoring putting aaway a loose ball.
Three minutes later Danny's shot was saved and Aashay put away the rebound.
Hawley replied immediately when a through ball caught us square.
The second half started with Hawley getting more into the match but it was Ashridge who scored again when Tommys free kick was headed on by Mitch and everyone stood still as Aashay pounced to score.
There was then a bad 5 minutes as Hawley scored 3 goals to go 4-3 up.
But to their credit heads did not drop as Ashridge equalised when Will and Danny set Mitch up.
Ashridge went ahead again when Jordan fired home a loose ball.
Dan pulled off a great save to keep us ahead before Mitch ran into the area and squared the ball for Glyn to score.
With 2 minutes left Hawley scored a good goal to cut the deficit to one, and Ashridge held on.
Credit to both teams for a great game of football, no bookings, no nasty fouls and no dissent.
