U18 North lose to Enfield Town 4-2
By Richard Thornton
A game of two halves
Harvesters U18 North were home at Oaklands against Enfield Town in a crucial league match.
The boys started the better and were on the front foot pressing the Enfield defence.
On 16 minutes Stanley Maisey floated in a great free kick which was controlled by Sam Mistry before shooting beyond the keeper to make it 1-0.
Three minutes later Harvesters were on the attack again and Harry Ruane won the ball before passing to Chris Rowe and laying the ball off to TJ Barton who scored at the second attempt after the keeper had saved his first shot.
On 33 minutes Harvesters gave the ball away cheaply and a great shot pulled one back for Enfield. 2-1 at half time.
Five minutes into the second half Enfield equalised with a header from a corner. Shouts for a penalty to Harvesters due to hand ball were waved away.
On 81 minutes Enfield took the lead 3-2 with a well worked goal through midfield. Two minutes later with Harvesters looking for the equaliser Enfield broke away and made it 4-2.
