Lavin res­cues South

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT -



FOOT­BALL A penalty from Adam Lavin helped South Manch­ester rally from two goals down to progress to the semi-fi­nal of the Peter Mor­ri­son Tro­phy.

The Reps came out of the blocks and showed their de­sire to progress with a cou­ple of early chances.

South thought they had struck first when Saul Shapiro found the net, only to be ruled out for off­side.

The MJSL team cranked up the pres­sure, mak­ing their dom­i­nance count through Adam Shiff­man.

South were rat­tled and cre­ated some open­ing, the best com­ing from the left foot of Toby Levy, forc­ing Jor­dan War­rents to save bril­liantly to his left.

Gabe Silva dou­bled the MJSL’s lead with a bul­let header into the top cor­ner with half an hour to go.

Tom Can­tor then gave South a life­line, nod­ding home a cor­ner from Toby Levy. Lavin equalised be­fore slot­ting home from the spot to com­plete the come­back.

South man­ager Neil Collins said: “It was a great game of foot­ball, show­cas­ing the north well.

“We were lucky and didn’t de­serve to progress, but the boys bat­tled and dug deep.

“It’s back to Lon­don for us next week, for a change, and we look for­ward to rep­re­sent­ing the north in the semi­fi­nals against the Lions.”
