Hampton’s U12A team played a close match against King’s College School Wimbledon which eventually ended in a 3-3 draw.
Oliver Khaksar (Hampton’s central defensive midfielder) scored a magnificent volley from a corner, and in quick succession, with our next corner, an own goal was scored to put Hampton in a comfortable position with a two goal lead.
In the last minute of the second half, Ben Whitley made a tremendous run though the opposition defence and, despite the best efforts of KCS, he drilled the ball into the bottom corner.
After a few substitutions the second half was under way and, in the the sixtieth minute of the second half, KCS made a breakthrough to get them back in the game and soon after they scored again. The game came right down to the wire and, with the last kick of the game, an overhead goal was scored to bring the game to 3-3.
There was some great football played but an unfortunate draw for Hampton having lost a three goal lead.
