2nd April 2019 0 U23 Team

This game had just about everything you could want from a local derby as Heath extended their unbeaten run to six games and move up to 4th place in the division.

A fairly even first half where there was plenty of endeavour and some quality football on show from both sides but the score remained blank.

Things all changed minutes into the restart when Bradley Peters got involved in a skirmish by the home dugout which ended with the player getting a straight red and along with the YM coach sent to the dressing rooms. So for the second match running the Bears were down to 10.

Sometimes these things can work in your favour with the players knowing they are up against it and trying that little bit harder to make up for being a player down, and just as they did in previous match they took the lead. A fantastic run down the left flank by Jake Hull who skipped past a challenge and sprinted away from the defender before playing an inch perfect ball into the path of Ben Whiteley who placed his shot wide of the keeper into the corner of the net.

The home side drew level in the 69th minute when Conor Smith sprinted three quarters of the length of the field to make challenge but was harshly judged to have committed a foul and from the free kick Jack Ryder converted from close range to bring the score level.

In the 83rd minute the home-side took the lead from yet another free-kick, again the ball played into the box where Tony Nwachukwu reacted quickly to fire in from close range.

Again the Bears responded with a carbon-copy goal to the first but this time it was Renalto Carvalho who finished another quality move and that’s how the game ended.
