Melbourn Dynamos Panthers U12s 1

Hitchin Youth 12

Melbourn Dynamos Panthers U12s were beaten 12-1 by Hitchin Youth in a match in which they were only able to field nine players.

The first half was one-way traffic with Melbourn unable to put together any threatening attacks. Hitchin notched up eight goals without reply despite some resolute defending from Ryan Lees and a couple of quality saves from Connor Patel in the Panthers goal.

To their credit Panthers came out in spirited fashion in the second half as Luke Eades, Sam Austin and Robbie Dingwell all linked up well to create some good openings.

Hitchin scored their ninth before Austin converted a penalty after he was tripped in the area.

A few more chances went begging for Panthers but Hitchin continued to make the most of the extra two players by scoring three more late in the game. All nine players should be proud of themselves for not letting their heads drop.
