Sorry Levens Suffer Heavy Loss Against Ashley Down School
By Lee Panchbhaya
Ashley Down School Away - 24th November 2018
The U14s started this game with energy and guile and were much the better side at the home of the league leaders in Bristol. Encouraging play from Jae, Geyni and Ashton gave Levens hope that they would topple this previously unbeaten side. Levens went close on a number of occasions but couldn't find that killer touch in front of goal. And they were to pay for this when, on a rare foray forward, the hosts scored following a freak rebound from a clearance from Jonathan.
Not disheartened at half time Levens attacked the opposition immediately following the break. But to the dismay of the whole team found themselves again on the wrong end of some quick goals resulting from poor defending. This gave the home side hope and they continued to press Levens back with some impressive passing in midfield and pacy wing play. Levens could not handle this and found themselves 5-0 down.
But they kept going and can take some pride that they scored the goal of the game. Jae, who was impressive on the right broke away and crossed perfectly for Ben to score at the far post. The game was not over, however, and Levens eventually went down 7-1. A lesson learned.
