HENBURY made a lively start and continually stretched Yatton Under-18’s defence and it was no surprise when they scored twice without reply in the first 15 minutes.

HENBURY made a lively start and continually stretched Yatton Under-18s defence and it was no surprise when they scored twice without reply in the first 15 minutes.

Yatton started to get back into the game and goals from Tom Chandler and Dan Walter levelled the game, but further pressure from Henbury saw them score again to lead 3-2 at half-time.

Yatton came out after the break and looked more determined. Two quick goals, one from a penalty, saw them take a 4-3 lead, but it wasn’t long before Henbury equalised, and then went ahead through a penalty.

At 5-4, the game was far from over, and Henbury went further ahead before Yatton came again. The final goal of the game went to Henbury after Yatton failed to clear the ball from the penalty area to make the final score 7-5 win to Henbury.
