Under 13’s Match Reports

Tockwith U13s   2    Riccall Utd U13s  3
The home team knocked Riccall out of the league cup a few weeks ago so Riccall had a score to settle and from the off Riccall dominated the midfield tussle with Bridge,Graham and Butler controlling the centre of the park with ease. Tockwith then tried to cut out the midfield with several long balls to there attack but each time Ward and Free were there to clear up for Riccall. Riccall’s first goal came from a great strike from wide man Declan Page and 5 minutes later a Riccall attack ended up with the Tockwith goal keeper felling Dutton in the box which resulted in a penalty which Owen Butler placed neatly into the bottom left of the net to make it 2-0 at the half time break. Tockwith started the second period strongly and pulled a goal back which was 5 yards off side which went unnoticed but this gave Riccall fire in there bellies and when Jordan Moore found himself in space at the edge off the area with the ball he cheekily lobbed the advancing keeper to make it 3-1.The dying minutes of the game saw Tockwith hit the bar with a penalty which was then dramatically cleared by keeper Kozelko and then the bizarre happened when a lose ball was rolling out of play just wide of Riccall’s goal and  hit a bobble and rolled into the net much to everybody’s amusement but Riccall had done enough to win the match 3-2 and keep top of the table. Riccall’s man of the match was centre half Josh Ward.
