Another Great Performance by the Youngsters
By Stephen Tabb
Lions win against older team
Sils started very strong with some great attacks from Kheya, Matthew and Eva, the first goal came from some very nice build up play from the back to the front, Sils worked hard creating space off the ball and some intricate passing saw Matthew Hulbert break free into the D to slam home the opener.
The next twenty minutes saw the home team defend very well under Yardley pressure, several penalty corners were dealt with very well with the runners cutting out the initial shot, rebounds saw some great saves from Johnny Carter.
Sils went 2-0 up in the second half, this time the long ball was the success, Eva Robinson bagged the goal after running through on goal and slotting the ball home calmly.
Yardley came back stronger and caught Sils on the break creating a two on one and scoring on their second time of asking after a great first save from Johnny.
Some inspirational midfield work from Flo, Kheya, Bethany, Imogen and Melissa and some calm defending from Rosie and James saw Sils hold out for the 2-1 win.
