Belper Sports U12s 1

Hilton Harriers 1

THIS was a good result for Belper against an accomplished Hilton team who would have gone top of the table if they had won.

The visitors had not conceded in the league until this match but Belper were strong in midfield, denying the visitors any space.

Belper began to control the game and after the Hilton keeper had made a good save to deny Dylan Garnett, the latter then gave Sports a deserved lead a minute later after a crunching tackle by Joel Cain set the move up.

Hilton hit back and hit a post after Will Newton made a good save.

At the start of the second half Garnett was tripped and a penalty awarded but the Hilton keeper saved.

The visitors put Belper under intense pressure but only equalised in the dying minutes when Newton was beaten by an unstoppable shot.
