HTWFC U12’s 4 – 0 Sheffield Utd Reds
Our U12’s unbeaten run now stretches to 13 games after a convincing win against a strong Sheffield United team.
Town had to show a different side to there game as usually they dominate possession however it was Sheffield who had plenty of the ball. Towns defence was solid and they played the counter attack very well and took the lead after 5 minutes when the ball was put through to Evie Franks who tucked the ball into the bottom corner. Sheffield continued to have plenty of the ball but it was town who doubled there lead when Evie Franks scored her 2nd with a lovely finish from outside the box. Shortly after, Sheffield thought they had pulled a goal back when there striker finished well but was offside so the score remained 2-0. Town looked very dangerous on the counter and just before half time they were awarded a penalty when a Sheffield player handled the ball inside the area. Evie Franks took the penalty to complete a 1st half hatrick. Half time 3-0.
Credit to Sheffield as they came out firing in the 2nd half but Towns defence was rock solid as usual as they claimed there 7th clean sheet of the season. Not only did Town defend well in the 2nd half they also continued to push for more goals and Evie Franks scored her 4th of the match this time smashing the ball into the bottom left hand corner. Full time 4-0. Player of the match went to Evie Franks after one of the best individual performances we have seen this season.
