The U18’s beat London Tigers 2-1 away in the League Trophy Quarter Final. After beating the same opposition 13-0 last week, motivation was a little difficult – even with a 3rd semi final spot available. In very windy conditions the Dragons looked uncomfortable from the off struggling to control the ball. The lead came from a crisp move down the right, the fullback overlapping to cross for the central midfielder to head home his 20th goal of the season. Half chances came and went and then the Dragons were punished when a goalkeeping error let in the equaliser. The Dragons rose to the challenge and a second strong penalty appeal was successful; the attacking midfielder also netting for the 20th time this season. With tempers fraying half time provided the opportunity to regroup. The Dragons play improved in the second half but they still struggled in the attacking third with the Tigers defending resolutely. The Dragons however were resolute and held on to win.
Match date Sunday 29th April.
