Lydiard Youth 1-1 Croft Juniors

[divider type=”1″]

Croft lost ground in the title race after a lazy 1-1 draw against one of the sides lower down in the table. The Blues started fairly complacently and never looked to have control of the game against a team who worked harder in the midfield than the Blues, and deservedly took the lead just after half time, despite a few calls for offside. The Blues did then up their game and came out on the attack, with the Lydiard keeper forced into a few good saves. It looked like it wasn’t going to be the boys’ day when Ben Rowlands saw his penalty saved by the goalkeeper. But with 5 to go, Luca Colucci came inside from the left and hit a shot into the top corner. Despite their best efforts, the boys couldn’t nick it, and will feel this is two points dropped.
