Under 18 Win Grand Final
UNDER 18'S WIN GRAND FINAL
The Kyneton District Soccer Club Under 18's won the BASL grand final on the weekend defeating Castlemaine Gold Yahoo's.
Coming from fourth on the ladder, the team found it's groove late in the season. The game started as a tight tussle with neither side prepared to give any ground and the defences both on top. Kyneton found the early lead however through a Bryson Gilbert goal to go into halftime 1 nil up.
The second half was a back and forward affair, with Castlemaine looking for the equaliser and Kyneton looking for a second and a cushion to work with. Castlemaine found the equaliser with least then 10 minutes to go and at full time, scores were locked at 1 all.
A short break and 10 minutes each of extra time is what the lads from both teams had to look forward to. Both teams attacked looking for the winner and with less than 5 minutes of the second half extra time left, a Bryson Gilbert shot from 30 metres beat the keeper over his head to find the winner for Kyneton.
Both Kyneton and Castlemaine played the game with great intensity and in the spirit that befits a Grand Final and showcased what the sport is all about. Well done to the lads of both teams on successful seasons.
