Magnificent Minster men
York school boys u12 had what seemed a tricky away game against Worksop in the league. York in their changed kit of blue started brightly in very difficult conditions with heavy rain and wind the order of the day.
Yorks midfield of Will Hollings and Harry Tinker carrying on from where they left off from last weeks game, both looking to find York striker Elliot Heath at every opportunity when on seven minutes a pass from Hollings found Heath inside the box who turned and shot leaving the home sides keeper stranded, one nil to the away side.
The Minster men were playing the conditions far better than the home side and seemed to be making chances at will. From a throw in deep inside the home sides half Taylor Bell took the throw, found Hudson who headed on for Hollings to put Jack Lowe clear on goal the York winger took his chance slotting the ball away with ease for his first goal of the game.
Yorks defence of Roughly, Hudson and Tingle dealt with everything the home side could throw at them and also helping to start many of the away sides moves, from one of the Worksop’s attacks Hudson took the ball away from the home sides striker and calmly played the ball out to Tinker who turned from inside his own half and ran at the home sides midfield beating one and surging towards the home sides box before he could reach the area Tinker was brought down from behind.
The free kick was taken by Bell the ball finding its way through the wall and into the corner of the net giving the keeper no chance. The Minster men were probably having their best twenty minutes of the season so far with the home side no answer to the pace of Heath, Lowe and Humphreys so it was no surprise that Lowe ran on to a through ball that cut open the home sides defence and coolly slotted the ball away for his second of the game and Yorks fourth.
York were forced into a change when Hudson went off with a pulled muscle being replaced by Isaac Meehan. The game was now getting very disjointed with Worksop flying into tackles in the hope of slowing down the York domination of the game. The home side still not having a meaningful attack with the York keeper Edgar mostly playing as a sweeper mopping up everything played in behind the Minster men’s defence.
Edgar collecting one back pass from Meehan and playing the ball straight back up the field to Roughly who with the Worksop midfield all out of position ran at the home sides defence playing in Humphreys who slotted the ball under the advancing keeper for his first of the game and Yorks fifth.
York kept pushing to the end with Kilvington putting Humphreys in down the left hand side who cut the ball back for Heath to get his second of the game with a half volley.
Worksop had now lost the plot giving away free kick after free kick and when Kilvington was brought down at the edge of the box with minutes to go he took the free kick that found Hollings in the box, Hollings looked to have scored with a fine header but the keeper got a hand to it but could only parry the ball straight into the path of Humphreys to tap in for his second and Yorks seventh of the game. The game ending from the resulting restart.
The Minster men scoring 24 in the last four games conceding only 1.
