RTJFC U10 Eagles v Coventrian Phoenix U10. Autumn Cup – Sunday 14 October 2018

Conditions were difficult for both sides due to the heavy rain, however the trophy semi final match was played in great spirit.
The Eagles had a number of early chances which were blocked or cleared off the line as well as hitting the woodwork twice.
The visitors opened the scoring following confusion as the ball pinged around the penalty spot before it was slotted home.
Again chances came for the Eagles, but against the run of play, Coventrians doubled their advantage with a well placed shot.

The second have saw a grittier performance which put the visitors under pressure, allowing the boys to attack quickly from defence.
Their hard work was rewarded when Lukas Fitzpatrick rifled home to set up a frantic last 5 minutes which almost saw the boys get a deserved draw, as a final shot narrowly crept over the bar.

A good performance from the boys in what were very difficult conditions.
