YOUTH FOOTBALL: Highfield's wonderful fightback

First published in Sport

Highfield Juniors came from behind to win 3-1 away to Bampton Town Youth in a Under 11 Green League match switched to their pitch.

Both sides created good chances, though neither was able to break the deadlock.

Bampton came out all guns blazing for the second half and went ahead within 30 seconds of the restart, with Simon Porter’s powerful free-kick flying into the net past Ethan Gough in the Highfield goal.

But Highfield were level a minute later when Samuel Pearce fired home a free-kick from 25 yards.

Tom Tyack gave Highfield the lead when he latched onto a loose ball before finding the bottom corner from outside the area.

And the turnaround was completed when Matthew Innes cracked home a left-footed shot into the top corner.
