- 4-2 Home Win For U/21's Tornadoes
Getting back to winning ways on Saturday 3rd December 2022 were Beechfield United U/21's Tornadoes who secured a 4-2 home win over Boothstown Juniors.
*Straight from the kick off Beechy enjoyed a decent share of the ball and Billy Wadeson missed an early chance to opening the scoring. Following a few fast attacks Boothstown Juniors took the lead against the run of play and the Tornadoes made a couple of substitutions. Both Dominic Lawton and Ellis Kenny worked hard to retain possession but on a few occasions Beechy were let down by some poor distribution. Boothstown continued to create a few eye catching moves forcing some vital Tornadoes defending and both Mouhamad Oufadelmboup and Liam Foley plus keeper Dylan Walker denied the visitors a two goal lead. Play continued to switch rapidy from end and despite having chances to get back on level terms Beechy were still trailing 1-0 at the break.
But four minutes into the second half the Tornadoes equalised after they won a corner when Mouhamad Oufadelmboup met Ellis Kenny's flag kick and scored with a powerful close range header. A couple of minutes later a header by George Kamara almost beat the vistors keeper then when play moved to the other end of the pitch Mylo Thornton produced two excellent ball winning tackles. When the pace of the game went up a level Beechy played with a bit more freedom though Boothstown continued to threaten on the counter-attack. More great defending from Tyler Winstanley and Mouhamad Oufadelmboup help keep the visitors at bay but twice in quick succession the Boothstown No7 went close to finding the back of the net.
The next goal was vital for both teams and despite wasting possession on a few occasions the Tornadoes went 2-1 up when George Kamara took advantage of a defensive error by a Boothstown player and was on target via a stylish finish. After another mistake by a visitors defender Beechy added goal number three via Liam Hopkins who created the perfect angle before he fired the ball beyond the keeper. Another breakaway Boothstown move resulted in the visitors getting their second goal courtesy of their No9 who was at least ten yards offside when he received the ball. After having an appeal for a penalty turned down Beechy were awarded a penalty for a foul on Liam Hopkins and Tyler Winstanley converted the spot-kick and complete the scoring.
