U16s Sumas narrow defeat to Champions
Sumas were up against the Champions in this brought forward game and despite a convincing win over rivals Woodley Saints the previous week they toiled against a strong Ash team. Chances were hard to create and Sumas Keeper Ellis Wisdom was much the busiest with several fine saves. Ash went ahead on the half hour when a shot saved by Wisdom was forced home on the rebound. In the second period with Sumas improving it was Ash who went 2-0 up with an hour gone. However, three minutes later Sumas were right back in it when Amir Idjer set up Casey Starke for a brilliant dribble and shot into the top corner for the goal of the game with 15 minutes left. Sumas pushed hard but couldn’t get the equaliser and Ash took the points. Sumas Man of the Match was keeper Ellis Wisdom.
