Hampton’s U12Es won 3-0 in a tight game against Wilson’s School on Friday 28 January.
The game kicked off and after a tense first 15 minutes, the Hampton side were able to break the deadlock early on through a good move down the left, and an excellent ball by Adam Kahn to set up Jack Mountney.
Just minutes later, Mountney was at it again with a superb finish past the Wilson’s goalkeeper into the bottom corner.
With just 5 minutes until half-time Wilson’s broke through, however a brilliant save from Harry Skeffington kept the game at 2-0. Just before the whistle blew for half time Hampton had a goal ruled out as a cross from Jack Haynes found the slightly offside Mountney.
The home side went into half-time with a two-goal cushion. Hampton started the second half with the same aggressive intent they had maintained in the first 30 minutes and just 5 minutes in Kahn struck a volley into the top left corner to give Hampton a three goal lead.
Hampton didn’t give Wilson’s another chance and managed to keep the pressure high, almost finding the net again with a shot from Ivan Semenenko on the edge of the penalty area.
Hampton controlled the game for the most part with the occasional chance from Wilson’s School and avenged their loss against the same opponents from earlier in the season. Mountney continued his outstanding goal tally for the season and, overall, it was a very good performance from the U12E team.
