K Sports FC Youth U18 (KYL) 4 - 3 Sittingbourne Youth

Home | 30 September 2018

This Sunday saw K Sports U18 Colts play their old rivals Sittingbourne U18 Reds.  Sittingbourne were looking to bounce back from a heavy defeat to Deal in their last league match, and were the first to find the target poking home during a goalmouth scramble.

K Sports chased the game and were rewarded with a penalty when Jake Bates rounded a Sittingbourne defender only to be pulled down in the box.  Bates calmly dispatched the penalty low into the corner. 

Just before half time, K Sports failed to deal with a Sittingbourne corner, and fell behind 1-2 from the resulting goal.

Shortly into the second half, the superb Dan Brown found Ollie Aston with a 30 yard pass.  Aston took the ball round the keeper and found the back of the net, taking K Sports level again. 

K Sports began to turn up the pressure, with Aston drawing excellent saves from the Sittingbourne keeper.  Sports thought they’d taken the lead, only to realise Jack Ward’s excellent strike had been ruled offside.

As the game entered the last 20 minutes, K Sports finally took the lead when Dan Brown’s pin point pass found Jake Bates, who stroked the ball past the Sittingbourne keeper.  It only took 2 minutes for a strong Sittingbourne counter attack drew the score level again.

K Sports piled on the pressure, still looking for the win, and were rewarded as Bates turned provider when his superb cross was expertly headed into the Sittingbourne goal by the onrushing Morgan Tasker.

An excellent match finished 4-3 to K Sports, who registered their first league win of the season.
