Tiehi's Goal Rescues Cup Point

Saturday 28 September 2019 14:03

Main Action:

Jean-Pierre Tiehi opened his goalscoring account for the season to rescue a point in the Under-18s’ opening PL Cup fixture against Norwich on Saturday afternoon. 

The wind often causes havoc on the tempo of under-18s games, and this was no different. Both sides struggled to put together meaningful passes in a scrappy opening which suited the hosts.

Jay Stansfield was the first to test Joe Rose after Sylvester Jasper found a fortunate rebound come his way to ignite the swift move. Norwich put their own slick move together moments later after Zac Dronfield forced Damian Las to push behind a swerving strike. 

The Canaries were stamping their authority on the game and continued to press aggressively. Tony Springett drove inside as Las watched it sail over his crossbar. Josh Giurgi then took his turn to crack a shot inches wide from the edge of the box.

The pressure the boys had been taking couldn’t be withstood any longer on the stroke of half time. Tyrese Omotoye received the ball on the turn to fire past Las.

Jasper flew out of the traps for the second half, and as he did in the reverse fixture, Rose made another fantastic stop to deny him. The impact subs then combined to create an opening. Terry Ablade’s cross found the head of Jean-Pierre Tiehi whose downward header was equalled by Rose.

A stunningly precise Luca Murphy pass was met by a sumptuous first touch by Stansfield who rounded Rose but was crowded out at the last. Adrion Pajaziti’s first time effort looked to be destined for the corner but the trajectory took it away from the post.

The subs linked again to find the leveller. Tiehi slamming home Ablade’s powerful cross. There were many similarities to the 3-3 league draw as Fulham persisted to knock on the door. Ablade found the ball inside the box as Norwich threw bodies on the line to hold out for a draw.

What That Means:

We open our PL Cup account with a draw with the other fixture in our group being Everton vs Sunderland. 

Notable Talking Points:

  • Mika Biereth’s string of goals from the bench rewarded him with a start in Norfolk.
  • Jay Williams made his first start since signing from Newport County last month.
  • Jean-Pierre Tiehi netted his first goal of the season.
