ADASC u8s 4

Another eventful match saw Darley lose for the first time this season, although a storming comeback nearly kept their record intact.

A lively opening saw both teams go close, James Andrews firing just wide for Darley, while Josh Harrison made a great save at the other end.

ADASC took the lead midway through the first half though, a great shot from the edge of the box arrowing into the bottom corner.

Their lead didn’t last long though as a great through ball from Dylan Bayes found Ben Crooks and he stroked home the equaliser.

ADASC started the second half strongly, and despite the best efforts of Josh Snape and Thomas Wiggley, they scored two quick goals to make it 3-1.

Sam Gould, Joe Novelli and Jake Tabbenor tried to stem the tide in midfield but a long-range effort made it four and the game looked over.

The Dynamoes had other ideas though, and a great break down the left by Tommy Gill found Crooks who sneaked home his second.

Darley poured forward again and Bayes completed his long run by squeezing a goal home from the narrowest of angles.

The last few minutes were played entirely in the ADASC box, but, faced with a wall of defenders, their final opportunity came from a long range Andrews shot that whistled just wide.
