Barrowby U15s 2-7 Louth Old Boys U15s
An away fixture at Barrowby awaited Louth Old Boys U15s as the last match before the festive break and if they were to maintain their 100% league record, they would have to take on the elements as well as a very organised team.
A sloping bobbly pitch, strong wind and freezing temperatures were the order of the day, but the Louth team were well up for the challenge.
After a cautious start, Old Boys started to use the wind in their favour, and were soon a goal in front after a Jordan Potts rocket from 25-yards out.
This proved a critical point as very soon shots were flying in from all angles. Old Boys pressed high up the pitch and finished the half 4-0 to the good.
A change in tactics at half time meant that defending high up the pitch was the way forward, and this proved to be the case as Louth scored their fifth goal.
Barrowby were up against the odds, but to their credit, kept pressing with the wind at their backs and soon scored a couple of goals.
Clearly Louth were in no mood to let a large lead slip and upped the pace to score a couple more goals before the final whistle, running out 7-2 winners.
Scorers were Ryan Worrell with three, Jordan Potts with two, Ross Teo and Jamie Riddel with one each. So as it stands at the half way stage in the league, Played eight, won eight with a maximum 16 points.
