Match Report
Epsom College Boys-U16D vs  Haileybury
On: Saturday, 02 Feb 2019
Venue: Away

Lost 3-4

What a game for the neutral! An end-to-end game played in a great spirit with Haileybury coming out on top. After going two nil down midway through the first half, Epsom reacted well. Kit Man (F) and Bazel Fahd (H) tested the keeper and Kamana Akinyanju (F) hit the bar from a 25-yard free kick. As the half came to an end, Epsom got a deserved goal back with Akinyanju rifling a shot past the despairing keeper. Epsom dominated possession in the second half, but conceded two quick goals on the break to go 4-1 down, including an extraordinary own goal. Despite the deficit, Epsom did not give in. Niall Fatah (Rn) was particularly impressive – he did not stop running, breaking up the play with some crunching tackles. Akinyanju pulled one back from the penalty spot and Liam Colohan (P) finished a fine Epsom move to create a frenetic finale.
Goal scorers: Akinyanju (F) x2, Colohan (P)
