YOUTH FOOTBALL: Pearce bags a treble
2:00pm Thursday 23rd January 2014 in Sport
Samuel Pearce scored a hat-trick as Highfield Juniors won 3-2 at Garden City in the Giles Sports Witney Under 11 Youth Green League.
He opened his account after eight minutes when he curled a free kick into the top corner and doubled their lead when he slotted past the on-rushing goalkeeper.
Although Matthew Bell reduced the deficit, Pearce completed his treble after the break with a neat finish.
Josh Swadling cut the lead, but Highfield held on.
Launton Boys drew 2-2 at Carterton Town in the Under 15 A League.
Carterton’s opener was cancelled out when a Simon Lee corner was bundled in by Zarius Edwards-Giraud.
The visitors went 2-1 up when Charlie Pieton headed in a Lee cross, but Carterton equalised after the break.
