The Jewish Chronicle - - Sport -

FOOT­BALL LML Un­der 18s missed out on a place in the fi­nal of the Wat­ford Friendly League Chal­lenge Cup af­ter go­ing down 3-1 against Har­vesters North.

The Li­ons went into the semi-fi­nal on the back of a dread­ful run which has re­sulted in just one win in the past five matches in all com­pe­ti­tions.

Har­vesters, who have just re­tained the league ti­tle, broke the dead­lock five min­utes be­fore half time with a penalty fol­low­ing an in­fringe­ment from Richard Kano­lik.

Li­ons claimed a de­served equaliser when top-scorer Ja­son Gold­stein latched on to a mar­vel­lous through ball from Joel Ross be­fore ex­pertly head­ing over the on­rush­ing keeper.

The hosts were un­able to hold out for ex­tra time as Har­vesters clinched a place in the fi­nal on May 11.

The in­tro­duc­tion of David Do­brin pro­vided some much-needed im­pe­tus into the Li­ons side but they fin­ished sec­ond best. Li­ons will now look to clinch sec­ond place in the league from their two re­main­ing games.

Li­ons: Scott-Libby, Co­hen, New­man, Kano­lik, Co­hen (sub: Green), Wein­berg (sub: Julius), Gold­stein, Kay (capt), Elf (sub: Do­brin 70), Orgel, Ross
