Rnd One U19s vs Hampton

Under 19’s V Hampton - Sponsored by the Bentleigh RSL
The U19’s were in unfamiliar territory by having 4 people on the bench and although we had control of the game our lack of scoreboard pressure cost us in the end and easy rebound goals allowed Hampton to run over us in the end.
