Mid Lincs U14 B League
Heckington 1 Louth Town U14 8
Louth started brightly despite the sodden conditions and immediately put Heckington under a lot of pressure. After testing the goal keeper several time early on Louth earned a corner.
Tom Evison sent the ball supurbly into the box and Marcus Collins met the ball and powered it into the goal.
Three minutes late Louth keep the pressure on and a bobbly ball in the Heckington area gets pushed out only to be met by Ryan Bingham who hits it first time straight through the croweded area.
Straight from the restart Louth earn the ball back and Marcus turned provider as he pin points a cross into the box which is met by Harry Margeson’s head 3-0 Louth Town.
Louth Town start making a number of changes to allow different players to experience different positions, this slowed down the goal scoring and after a weak through ball was not met Heckington pulled a goal back.
Louth Town immediatly respond and Marcus Collins latches onto a Tom McGrath through ball to bring the score to 4-1, Heckington seem very grateful for the Half time whistle.
Louth come out of half time slowly, retaining the ball but not really applying the sort of pressure that the finished the first half with.
It took 20 minutes for Louth to extend their lead with Tom McGrath taking a 35 yard free kick which looked like it was going to miss the far post when Harry Margeson lept up again to head the ball home.
Ivan Koslow put a cross into the box which Ryan Bingham directed home, and just minutes later Tom Evison put in a perfect cross to turn Ivan from provider to Scorer.
Just as the game looked done, Ryan Bingham put Marcus in on goal, Marcus powered the ball straight at the keeper from 2 yards, the keeper stood up well but took the ball full force and was felled immediately, Marcus had the reactions to kick in the rebound as the keeper was falling.
Overall a good performance by Louth Town showing some great touches, however behind all the headline news of goals the team worked tirelessly allowing others to play forward with confidence.
The Man of the Match was Liam Wilson who controlled the entire of the centre of the park working really hard for his team mates.
