Off the back of a thrilling 4-0 win against local rivals VPR, the U15s faced Burnham Utd who were 2 wins from 2 so far this season. Burnham started the half the stronger side and went 1-0 up after 5 minutes as the Zoy defence were unable to clear the ball from the box. After a change in tactics, Zoy were on the up and were looking the more threatening side. After 30 minutes, Lucas stepped up and rifled a shot at the Burnham keeper who was unable to get a good glove to it and Zoy drew level before halftime! After the break, Burnham were looking the more dominate side and played some good football, but the Zoy boys held strong. The ball was cleared high and far towards the Zoy box and due to an unlucky bounce off the Zoy keeper the ball bounced into the path of the Burnham striker who placed the ball into the Zoy goal to give them a 2-1 lead. This didn’t dampen the boy’s spirit as they kept pressing and pushing the Burnham players back deep into their half. The Burnham players were getting frustrated and started putting in some reckless challenges in some dangerous areas, giving the Zoy lads chances going forward. 5 minutes before the end, Burnham gave away a free kick 25 yards. Once again over the top of the ball was Lucas, who once again riffled the ball towards the goal where the Burnham keeper was unable to get a good hand on it and the flew past the keepers’ gloves to level the score 2-2. Man of the match went to goal scorer Lucas for his brilliant defence and offence play and effort throughout the game!
