U16Bs share the spoils in Petersfield

This was an evenly fought match with both sides earning the well deserved draw.

The opposition started strongly with much of the early possession which led to two early goals. Romsey’s response was immediate. They attacked with vigour and finally got their reward late in the half. Lorne played a long ball from his own half to Tom who controlled with one touch and smashed the ball home and soon it was two. Jack M dribbled into the D and laid off to Ben who struck the ball home.

The second half was end to end stuff with Ollie making two fine saves and the defence of Will, Owen and Barry standing firm time and time again.

Late in the half Petersfield again scored two in the space of two attacks but that had the usual effect when Romsey, playing with the bare eleven stepping up another gear. Jack S created two chances before playing a lovely ball into Ellison, he nudged on to Lorne who neatly stabbed home.

Next it was Harry winning the ball in his own half and playing up to Ben, he danced into the D before being fouled to the ground . From a short corner Ben was fouled again, this time being awarded a penalty flick, that he coolly converted.
