Under-11s Division Two

Hormead Hares 0 Hitchin Town Youth 3

HORMEAD Hares Under-11s conceded a goal within 90 seconds at home to

Hitchin Town Youth, with 'keeper Charlie Gates being beaten on his near post.

They then plugged the holes in their defence and battled hard to

get an equaliser with George Berrett, Michael Hicks, Max Kerr and Jack

Congrave coming to the fore.

However, they were caught on the break by a counter attack and were two goals adrift at half time.

A Joseph de Souza free kick made the Hitchin goalkeeper pull off an excellent diving save, to prevent Hares scoring.

Hares continued to battle with Owen Hughes working hard up front on his own but another Hitchin goal saw the match slip away.

Michael Hick almost earned the home side a consolation as a chipped shot from the edge of the penalty area nearly beat the keeper but the Hares are still seeking that elusive first league win of the season.
