Under 16 Rovers Progress to Semi-Finals of Ryedale Cup
Full time from Heathhall. Lochar Thistle 1-6 Heston Rovers Cup action for our u16s today as we made the short journey across town to play Lochar Thistle in the quarter final of the Ryedale Cup. With Lochar recently having picked up some good results, the Heston boys knew they would need to lift their game for this one. The game started well with both teams not wanting to give anything away but trying to play football. It wasn't until the 22nd minute when Dempsey with a good bit of work and a shot from a tight angle that beat the Lochar goalie at his near post 0-1. Soon followed number 2 and 3 for Heston with Ryan and Dempsey both finding the net. Heston were well on top now and created more chances but unable to add to the lead. HT 0-3 Into the second half and it took 5min for Ryan to score his second and Hestons 4th to extend the lead. With Lochar now having to have a real go they pulled 1 back with a long ball for their striker to score from 1-4. Heston though kept calm and continued to cause problems for Lochar. Goal 5 is probably still being disputed as we've 2 boys claiming it but it's going down as an own goal. Sorry Ryan and Vinnie!! As the game neared the end Heston added the sixth, and it was Ryan again with his third to complete his hat-trick. Ft 1-6 Well done today lads. A bit scrappy at times but it's job done and we move into the semi-final. Also good to see you's are listening at training as not 1 offside decision against us today...???
