K Sports FC Youth U18 (KYL) 2 - 4 Hastings United

Home | 09 September 2018

The new look K Sports U18s began their campaign in the Kent Youth League South Division on the back of a successful pre-season.  The team were hoping to carry this form into their first competitive match against a very impressive Hastings United team.

K Sports started brightly but it was Hastings who hit the target first on the 15 minute mark. Chasing the equaliser, K Sports created a number of chances in the remainder of the first half, with Alex Selntigia drawing an excellent save from the Hastings keeper, and Ollie Aston hitting the bar.  However, just before half time, Hastings managed stretch the K Sports defence and double their lead following an excellent counter-attack.

Another Hastings goal on the 65th minute failed to dampen the K Sports spirit and they were rewarded when Eben Simmons' precise through ball found Jake Bates who calmly slotted home.

K Sports continued to chase the game and play some really positive football, but Hastings remained strong and added a fourth goal on the counter attack.

Heading towards the final whistle, a misplaced pass back was chased down by Oliver Aston, who superbly rounded the stunned keeper and ran the ball into the back of the net.  Seconds later history almost repeated itself when once again Aston raced towards another poor back pass, only to clash with the on-rushing Hastings keeper, sending both players to the ground.

The match finished 2-4.  Lots of positives for K Sports and plenty to work on.
