Imps Under 18's come from behind to win

Ash Foyle says the Imps have developed a habit for winning after two second half goals earned the U18’s to a well fought win away at Doncaster in the Youth Alliance League.

In the 25th minute the home side took the lead with a close range finish, giving the Imps work to do in the torrential conditions.

Shortly after half time, Mekhi Angol equalised for the Imps, capitalising on a deflected free kick.

In a largely scrappy game, a moment of quality from Theo Mussell in the 70th minute completed the comeback for the Imps as he cut in from the right-hand side and struck the ball sweetly off the post and in.

Strong defending and excellent goalkeeping from Sam Green helped the Imps close out the result and leave Doncaster with all three points.

Lead Phase Coach Ash Foyle said: “We were the better team in the first half and dominated the game, but they managed to score after some poor defending in the box.

“The second half was quite scrappy due to the weather conditions getting even worse but forced an equaliser before Theo Mussell scored a screamer which proved to be the winning goal.

“We managed the game well late on and stood up to some late pressure which was good to see.

“The lads have got into a winning habit and always look capable of scoring goals which is pleasing to see.”
