Louth Town youngsters keep pressure on leaders with Boston win

LOUTH Town’s U13s survived a spirited fightback at Boston Mayflower to secure a well earned 4-2 win.

The visitors took the lead early on when Bingham struck from a Brumpton cross to make it 1-0.

Shortly after McGrath made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after Wrisdale was felled in the box.

Boston’s fightback began just before the break. A high ball into the Louth box was met by a firm header to pull the score back to 2-1.

The second half began with the home side taking the game to Town. An awkward ball was sent across the box and took a wild bounce past Town goalkeeper Skye Kirkham to make it 2-2.

Town took control when Wrisdale wriggled through the defence before being brought down on the edge of the box. McGrath netted his second set piece of the game as he curled his free kick over the wall and into the top corner.

And Town wrapped up the points when McGrath raced through and played in Williams who made it 4-2.

There was more drama to come as Kirkham brilliantly saved a penalty at the death to earn her player of the match award.

Louth remain in second place, three points behind leaders Naveby with two games in hand.
