1st game: BSCFC Blues U14s 2 Hormead Hares 2
BSCFC Blues succumbed to a late goal to share the points on Sunday in the first of a double-header against Hormead Hares.
After just two minutes Jordan Sanderson was played through and opened the scoring.
The Hares defence was coming under ever increasing pressure and this forced them to concede a free kick just outside the area on the right hand flank.
Harry Synowski lined the ball up and curled it magnificently into the top far corner of the net to double the lead.
Blues continued to press forward and this made them susceptible to a break away from the hard-working Hares. Tommy Baiss had to be quick out of his goal on two separate occasions to prevent the Hares from exploiting the gap behind the Blues defence, although shortly after a marvellous set of interplay between Mark Redcliffe and Jordan Sanderson almost let Redcliffe in, only a desperate Hares challenge preventing him from extending the Blues lead.

However, Hares played their way into space on to the left of the a crisp passing move and their forward finished a fine move off with an excellent shot into the corner to reduce the deficit.
The second half was pretty much all one way traffic, with the Hares upping their game and with just 8 minutes to go they deservedly equalised.
Their Rory Delap impersonator threw a long ball deep into the Blues area from a good thirty yards away, and as a result of failing to deal with a bouncing ball their right winger was left unchallenged to score with a very strong and well placed header to snatch the equaliser.
2nd game: Hormead Hares U14s 0 BSFC Blues 3
The Blues raced out of the blocks and were ahead after five minutes when Harry Synowski rose brilliantly to the ball ahead of the taller Hares defenders to direct a firm header past the Hares keeper.
Blues continued to press hard and were starting to play some excellent football, particularly Mark Redcliffe and Harry Synowski. A few minutes later Connor Gypps did brilliantly to get his head to a corner but it drifted just wide and high of the goal.
Two minutes later the ball again fell to Gypps from a half cleared corner. From well outside the area he hit a half volley that looked for all the world like it was going to be the second goal, but sadly for Connor it cannoned back off the corner of the bar and the post and out to safety.
But the Blues were not to be denied and shortly after they won a foul after Mark Redcliffe was fouled midway in the Hares half on the right.
Jordan Powles floated in a dangerous ball, and Hares failed to deal with the danger, allowing Jordan Sanderson to nip in ahead of their defence and head the ball home to double the lead.
Hares were struggling to cope with Blues, and were lucky to have eleven men still on the pitch after a punch in the face off the ball was missed by the referee, who was rightly keeping up with the play.
Unfortunately this had dreadful post-match repercussions but for the moment Blues chose to express their displeasure on the pitch.
Half way into the second period, Jordan Sanderson did really well to cross the ball in from the byline and after a brief skirmish, Harry Synowski was there to finish off a fine move and made it 3-0.
Blues remained very much on top right up until the final whistle and ran out deserved winners.
