Full Time: Beacon Hill U18 Fire 3 - 1 Braishfield Bees Youth U18


The first half was evenly matched. Toby Malone nearly opened the scoring for Braishfield early on. His shot from close range pulled out a good save by 'keeper, Ferdy Marshall.

As Braishfield pressed, Samuel Payne hit the side netting but it was Beacon Hill who scored first in the 14th minute when Oscar Shaw nodded home from a corner. 

Three minutes later Samuel Payne equalised for Braishfield after a solo run.

Play went end from end and it looked as if Jack Richardson had put Beacon Hill back in the lead but his shot hit the crossbar.

The game turned in the 50th minute when Ollie Ryman curled in a close range shot to put Beacon Hill back into the lead. He nearly scored again moments later but the 'keeper Jimmy Palfrey made a good save.

Although by now Beacon Hill were on top, Braishfield nearly hit back when Samuel Payne put a shot narrowly over the bar.

Ryan Littlewood wrapped up the win for Beacon Hill in the 85th minute with a shot across the 'keeper.
