Horncastle Town U14s 4-0 Ruskington Lions U14s

Town U14s overcame some difficult weather conditions on Sunday to take the bite out of Ruskington Lions, four times in fact.

The game got underway and the early pressure was being made by the hosts, some chances opened up for Town with Corey Pearce having an attempt at goal but well saved by the Lions ‘keeper.

This painted the picture for the first half - Horncastle making plenty of chances, but at half time the core was still 0-0.

The second half started in the same way with some scrappy play from both teams, but the strong winds played a big part in these difficult conditions making the ball harder to control.

The deadlock was finally broken when a fine run by Harry Close down the right channel and into the box tucked away a shot which looked as though it went through the ‘keepers legs.

The game continued in a scrappy manor but now that Horncastle had broke the deadlock they continued to press and the ball broke down the right with Reece Bevington, who made his way into the area and scored.

A break by Ruskington against the run of play was created with their striker getting himself through with a one on one with Travis Ayres in goal, but he blasted over.

Horncastle pressed again when a throw on from the left was met by Reece Bevington with a header that was flicked into the six yard box and fell to captain Corey Pearce for an easy tap in.

The game continued with some fine defending and again a ball played from the back through the middle of the park was met by James Wood, who calmly slotted home inside the left upright from the edge of the Ruskington area to make it 4-0.
