Seagulls Steal Win

Saturday 6 April 2019 13:08

Two Brighton headers were enough for them to take all three points back to the South Coast on Saturday morning at Motspur Park.

Danny Cashman nodded in the opener before Lorent Toljat found himself free from a corner to double the lead. 

Brighton started brightly and popped the ball around well in the opening minutes. An early corner was flicked wide after some lacklustre marking in the Fulham box.

The lads needed a few moments to compose themselves and it was Jean-Pierre Tiehi with the first opening. Connor McAvoy’s long ball into the channel set the forward clear but Roco Rees made himself big.

George Wickens needed to use every inch of his frame to get down to Teddy Jenks’ low drive. The game slowed as injuries on both sides killed momentum. The half sleep-walking towards a stalemate.

Sonny Hilton was as explosive and driving as ever. He embarked on a run into the area and his low drive whistled past the post.

Brighton did find the lead just after the half hour mark. Sam Packham’s testing cross was nodded home by captain Cashman. The lads found themselves with a deficit to cut at the break.

A slick move from the visitors opened up the hosts, but an impeccably timed tackle from Zico Asare denied them access. From the resulting corner Toljat found himself free at the back to double the lead.

Tiehi connected crisply with Ryan De Havilland’s wide free kick which was planted over the bar.

Steffan Vukoje could have sealed the win for the visitors as he dragged his shot wide with a clear sight of goal.

Sylvester Jasper was looking to inspire a comeback – much like that against Aston Villa. His trickery pulled a dangerous ball into the Brighton box with no one there to meet it.

The defeat puts the Under-18s back into a rut, having gone on the impressive run through March.
