Coventry & Warwickshire Youth League U17 Division B
RUGBY TOWN U17 COLTS (sponsored by Hi-Speed Services Ltd) 5 – 2 Coventrians U17
Colts battled well in blustery conditions to beat Coventrians in an entertaining game at Kilsby Lane.
Rugby started well, and with the conditions in their favour, controlled the game. Darek Kuberka and Sam Coulter combined well up front. The midfield of Jake Smith, Henry King, Charlie Trayford, Owen Hammond, and Sam Boazman battled well to maintain the pressure on Coventrians and Colts were rewarded in the 16 minute when Kurberka combined with Coulter who slotted home. Trayford made it two following good work from Freddie Stephenson and Kuberka fired in from the edge of the area to make the half time score 3-0.
Colts started the second half on the back foot as Coventrians used the conditions to apply pressure, but defenders Robert Adams, Freddie Stephenson, Adam Fry and Matthew Warburton held firm.
Kuberka and Coulter combined well to provide Colts with a fourth, before Coventrians struck back with a brace of quick goals. Stephenson, Warburton, Kurberka, produced a sweeping move from their own corner flag to put Coulter in for his hat-trick and Colts fifth.
The game ended with Colts deservedly winning 5-2 after a fantastic performance by all.
