BURGESS HILL TOWN 8 HORSHAM 1

Monday 17th October 2011

Ryman Youth League (South Division)

Leylands Park, Burgess Hill

Attendance: 52

In a season of ups and downs for the under 18s, this was a demoralising defeat in terms of the score but there were positives to be taken as the possession was shared in the second half and both teams probably had about the same amount of chances, but is was the Hillians who showed their class with clinical finishes whereas the Hornets were often too slow to get the shot off when chances arose.

Horsham actually took an early lead after 3 minutes through Dean O'Keefe but, playing against the wind, were soon under pressure from the home side. Two quick goals around the half hour mark put Hill in front and a needless foul in the area gave them a third goal from the penalty spot before half time. The Hornets lost captain Darian Clay and Connor Brievik both to injury in the first half and it was experience that they could not afford to be without against a strong Hillians team.

Horsham could again have opened the scoring at the start of the second half but failed to take the chance and another two quick goals in succession put Burgess Hill into a 5-1 lead. Both sides played some good football, keeping the ball on the grass in difficult windy conditions, and the Hornets had a number of half chances and free-kicks in decent areas but never really threatened whereas every attack at the other end seemed to end up in the back of the net as the Hillians players were given to much freedom in key areas.

The final score ended 8-1 and Horsham will need to get to the training ground on Thursday to put in some hard work and rebuild confidence ahead of the next match.
