Etone Football Academy 4 – 2 Aston Villa Football Academy
Education Football League
Venue: The Pingles Stadium
The first half was a quick start with Villa creating some chances in the opening minutes. The first goal came in the 25th minute when it went 1-0 to Villa from a well-worked play down the wing. It then became 2-0 shortly after, when the Villa striker latched onto a through ball from the halfway line to poke it home from 18 yards away. Half time 2-0 to Villa.
During the break our team re-grouped as they focused on creating their own opportunities.
With a prep talk the second half began with Etone having the wind with them which helped to pin the Villa lads in their half and use it to their full advantage. Scoring 2 goals in quick succession in the 65th minute and the 70th minute with 2 great passages of play took the score to 2-2. With 10 minutes to go the team pushed forward with changes off the bench bringing in some fresh play. Another two in quick succession brought the total to 4-2.
Great second half and a show off our Employability Skill or resilience as the team showed the determination to power through and bring home a win.
Final score 4-2
