After a week of soul searching following the Lambton results from last week, NCF’s U14’s found themselves on the backfoot early. Some scrappy defending saw NCF concede a goal after 40 seconds to go, one down. They settled in well from there though, fighting hard to lead 2-1 at half time. Jacob Meakins putting Nick Sweeny in for the equalizer and a fantastic strike from Jesse Cameron just minutes later followed some great work from Noah Searle in the midfield. The second half was a tense affair. NCF defended well and played some nicely structured football. Plenty of chances were created, however, the man of the match performance by Mid North Coast’s goalkeeper saw the match finish at 2-1.
