EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

Result Ware U18s 3-1 St Albans City

The under U18s were away against EJA London League highflyers Ware U18s in an eagerly awaited County Cup Quarter Final on their 4g pitch.

The young Saints started brightly moving the ball quickly and looking dangerous however with 10 mins gone a Ware shot hit a Saints defender in the face the players continued only for the ref to award a penalty for handball which Ware converted.

This decision only added to the saint’s intent who continued to play the better football but couldn't quite force the equaliser.

Ware then went 2 up following a swift counter with Sam Galatis saving the first shot only to see the ball fall to a Ware striker who made no mistake from 5 Yds.

Saints continued to pressure the Ware defence and thought they'd scored from an overhead attempt from James Lawrence which was cleared off the line. A further good move found Lawrence with his back to goal 20 yards out he rolled the centre half hitting a low shot across the keeper that he somehow got down and tipped round the post. The resulting corner saw chaos ensue in the Ware Box a Tom Carmichael header hitting the back of Lawrence and the ball breaking loose for Billy Owen to stab home. HT 2-1.

The half time message was a simple one doesn’t concede and more of the same.

Saints though started the half slowly conceding an early corner and went further behind with some poor defending not picking up the Ware's centre half who headed in from 3 yards.

Saints then came back to life with Owen going close from a cross from the left seeing his first-time volley hit the side netting and then minutes later pulled free on the left narrowly shooting wide.

With 20 mins to go Ralf Lankshear broke free on the edge of the box and was brought down with a two footed tackle from behind. The ref immediately showed a red card to the Ware player.

With the extra man Saints changed formation to a back three and continued to chase the game. Carmichael coming close twice with a shot and a header. Ware though defended valiantly to see the game out and book a place in the semi-final against their U17s.

The young Saints return to EJA League action this Sunday 8th March a 10:30 kick off at Clarence Park.

EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

The U18S were back in League action following a two week break due to the weather against Wingate & Finchley.

Following a 9-0 win in the reverse fixture the Saints knew Wingate would be looking for a better performance.

As expected, Wingate came out of the box with a high pressing game making it difficult for the boys to play out through the back however the Saints defence held firm.

Saints struck first after 20 mins with a through ball finding Billy Owen in the box who was brought down for a penalty that he converted low into the bottom corner.

Saints began to find their feet and came close to a second from a good move and cross down the left with James Lawrence seeing his header beat the keeper but hitting the bar.

On 35 mins the second came with Ryan Orde winning the ball on the right driving forward and finding James Lawrence just inside the box who took one touch and fired a low shot across the keeper into the net off the inside of the post. 2-0 at half time.

Wingate started the second half brightly closing the space well however with Saints coming down the Clarence slope should have put the game to bed with both Hossen and Lawrence forcing good saves from the Wingate keeper one on ones and Owen hitting the post. Saints were unlucky not to be awarded another penalty when Owen broke free on the right and appeared to be fouled after he crossed the ball.

Wingate rallied and had a goal disallowed for offside before pulling one back winning the ball in midfield finding their striker who hit an unstoppable left foot shot into the top corner.

Wingate were in the ascendancy looking for an equaliser and had their own claim for a penalty which the referee waived away. 

Saints held to maintain their 100% League record with a 10th consecutive win and Wingate disappointed not to get anything from the game.

Next week the young Saints visit Ware Academy U18S for the Herts County Cup quarter final.

Some tenacious tackling by Harry Kotinas and some brilliant runs from Finley Smith saw the 7 South constantly on the attack whilst Joe Penning, Seb Theobalds and Antoine Asiedu marshalled the defence. Harry Kotinas made a fine run into the box whereupon he was brought down and he dusted himself down to take the penalty kick and although the Bedwell keeper parried his spot kick Harry Kotinas was first to the ball and tuck it away for the South's second goal. Vinnie Crawley nearly added a third, but his low shot hit the post whilst Barney Makepeace also went close and Joe Penning during his turn between the sticks also made some excellent saves. Fine performance from all the boys and so Ice Creams all round, Coach Orders.

The visitors then began a good spell pushing the saints back. From a Cheshunt corner Saints won the ball and broke on the counter finding Billy Owen who sped away down the right channel whereupon he unselfishly pulled the ball back for James Lawrence who slotted home low to the keepers right.

The pattern didn't change with Cheshunt keeping the ball well and Saints having to defend resolutely.

Ryan Orde stepped up curling a superb free kick into the top corner making it 2-0 at half time to the Saints.

Cheshunt then won a free kick in a similar position to the saint’s free kick in the first half. What looked like a certain goal with the ball heading into the top corner over the wall, Sam Galatis on at half time back from injury somehow got across the goal tipping the ball onto the post.

Saints fourth came from another swift counterattack with a through ball from Daniel Banerjee deflecting off the defender which Billy Owen collected he then beat the centre half and the Cheshunt keeper and slotted the ball into the unguarded and empty net.

With 10 minutes to go Cheshunt got their second with as good move down the left finding their striker on the edge of the box who curled his shot into the corner.

Full time Saints take the points with a 4-2 win making it 9 from 9 in the league.
