YOUNGSTERS BEAT BARNET

12 October 2013

Three goals early in the second half earn victory

The Hatters' Under-18s fought back from a goal down at half-time to beat Barnet 4-1 in the Youth Alliance on Saturday morning.

Trailing at the break, the Town hit a purple patch at the start of the second half, scoring three goals in a five-minute spell that also saw Paul Driver's side have a goal disallowed.

The first three goals were all headers. Isaac Galliford's effort made it 1-1 before centre-back Harry Tamplin put the Hatters ahead from a corner.

A right-wing cross was headed home Daril Nwgala to make it 3-1, before Nwgala scored his second in the closing stages from the penalty spot after Zane Banton was fouled in the box.

Driver told lutontown.co.uk: "I was very, very unhappy in the first 22 minutes but very, very pleased with the next 68.

"We worked on crossing and heading in training on Friday and we've reaped the rewards.

"Ian Rees was made captain and I thought he was outstanding - absolutely terrific. Jemale McKenzie-Lowe may not have scored but his work-rate and teamwork was phenomenal."

The victory was the youngsters' fifth win in six league matches this season.

Town: Barnes; Crilley, Chabata, Tamplin, Hawkes; Amu, Rees, Galliford, Ngwala; Banton (sub Tayali 80), McKenzie-Lowe.

Subs not used: King, Allman, Amadi, Perry.
