Redcar Newmarket U15 v BARNARD CASTLE
By Mal Bean
Today’s game started with a minutes silence for Remembrance Day with all of the players, coaches and parents showing their respects.BC kicked off but RN robbed the ball off them then immediately went on the break with Darby testing the keeper with hard drive at goal only for Scott to react the fastest and send home the rebound to put RN up in the first minute, Innes then made it 2-0 with left footed strike, Davison then went on one of his powerful runs down the right leaving the full back for dead and blasting home from a tight angle, Karlsson felt the stoods of a BC player and there for kicked out in retaliation earning him a yellow card and a free kick for BC in a dangerous position, the resulting free kick was lifted in the area and finished by the striker, you could see the atmosphere change as BC went wild and got everyone going sensing they could get something out of the game, RN became complacent and BC finished off the half the stronger team.HTRN were warned that they were in for a tough game as Barney were growing in confidence, we were to keep it tight and take our chances, BC had targeted Darby & Davison as our threats and were closing Darby down and roughing him up with hard and late challenges and doubling up on Davison, it was a close fought 20mins until Innes struck his second to ease the pressure, not long after Davison reacted to a keeper spill and poked the ball home for his second, Winspear wrapped up the victory late on for a 6-1 win and cementing our place at the top of the league as other results went our way!!!MOM - BEN SCOTT
. Worked hard for the team and was a constant threat following up shots for rebounds, a true strikers poaching instinct!!!
