Highdown Saints Youth 1 HORSHAM 1

Sunday 4th September 2011

Arun & Chichester League

Horsham Youth U15s got off to a frustrating start to the new season as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Highdown Saints Youth.

The young Hornets made a positive start, taking the game to their opponents from the off, and after just six minutes they had taken the lead. A through ball from Andrew Roberts sent Callum Nash clear but he was upended on the edge of the box. From the resulting free kick, Roberts’ deflected shot eluded the best efforts of the Saints 'keeper, finding the back of the net. It was all one way traffic after that, with opportunities regularly being created. Rueben Selby first produced a great run and cross before midfielder Will Kerr then saw two efforts from distance go just wide. Another fine through ball from the impressive Roberts found Nash again in space, but he failed to get any contact on the ball.

It was not until the twenty sixth minute that Highdown offered their first real threat, as a long clearance down field was latched onto by the Saints striker who fired over the crossbar. To their credit, the home side finished what seemed to be a short first half of 33 minutes the stronger, and from a well delivered corner, they scrambled home their equaliser from just inside the six yard box.

There was a more even start to the second half with both sides having early opportunities to take the lead, however it was Horsham who started to take control of the game and creating the better chances. After fifty seven minutes a good run and shot from Roberts was well saved by the home 'keeper and, then a minute later, Joe Petchey fired just wide from a corner. Nash then probably had the best chance of the second half but his point blank effort was again well saved by the Saints ‘keeper.

Further chances came and went, with Alex Moore heading against the crossbar, and an inswinging corner from Nash also hitting the woodwork. At the other end Tom Auston made a good save from another well delivered Saints corner. Kerr struck another effort just wide after a good turn inside the box and further pressure from Horsham produced more dangerous attacks from set pieces, but the breakthrough just would not come.
