Youth goals: Matt 7, 39 mins


Back to league action this week against one of our local rivals.

The Stars as usual started brightly and Jack was unlucky not to score after 5 minutes, when he broke free from the half way line, however the ball just ran away at the last minute. The Stars took the lead on 7 minutes when Matt scored from close range, 1-0. Worthing United rallied after the goal and Nathaniel saved one v one to keep the score the same. Matt broke free on 15 minutes, but this time his shot hit the side netting.

The Stars were soaking up a lot of pressure down the left from Worthing United, with Wesley and Max tracking back well. From a short goal kick, Joshua B raced down the right and released Jack, his cross was met by Matt, but this time was saved by the United keeper. The Worthing United goal came from the left, where the cross was not cleared and the ball slotted past Nathaniel, 1-1. Worthing United started to pile on the pressure and from a corner the ball was cleared, but the United player reacted first and fired low into the left, 1-2. The Stars tried to draw level at half time with Charlie G flashing the ball wide. Half Time 1-2.

The 2nd half saw a very defensive setup from Worthing Untied, with 3 or 4 players defending when the Stars attacked. Jack was unlucky to be flagged off side as he raced onto a through ball from Jake. As the Stars tried to score they were lucky not to go 1-3 down, but between Oli and Max the ball was cleared. On 39 minutes Jack picked the ball up and squared it to Matt who shot over the keepers head, 2-2. The rest of the game each team cancelled each other out, until on 58 minutes Henry broke free down the left and his shot was saved by the keeper. Full Time 2-2.

Man of the Match today was awarded to Jack for a non-stop good performance, well done Jack.
