Romsey U16 were second best to table topping Southampton in awful cold and wet conditions at the Sports Centre.

It was the Romsey defence that played a key part in eliminating Southampton attacks, Ian Wilson swept away most moves that made it in to the Romsey D, with Alex Buck in inspired form in goal keeping the score at 0-0 until the last minute of the first half, James Manning and Luke Hammond were unlucky to be beaten by some swift Southampton passing, and when play was kept going after an offence in the D by Romsey, Southampton took advantage and eventually they broke the deadlock.

Romsey had missed a glorious chance to go 1-0 up with a breakaway, the goal being disallowed due to a Romsey foot offence in trying to put the ball in to he empty net.

In second half Romsey again soaked up pressure, and Hugh Davidson and Nick Buck were key in stopping Southampton attacks.

Southampton doubled their lead in the 50th minute from and then Romsey pushed hard to pull back the arrears, Toby Hill twice getting in to try and set up Ben Ellis and then Chris Harwood.

With five minutes to go Southampton scored a third from a penalty corner to remain top of the U16 league.
