Bridlington Rangers Pumas Under-12s lost out 2-0 at home to Lambwath Rangers in their Hull & District Youth League game on Sunday.
As the match kicked off, Drypool League leaders Lambwath were the slightly better side, pinning the Pumas in their own half and restricting them to breakaway chances.
For all their territorial advantage Lambwath couldn’t create any goalscoring opportunities and both goalkeepers had little to do, so it was no surprise that the teams went into the interval level at 0-0.
A mix-up between the Pumas keeper and a defender in the 34th minute allowed an alert Lambwath forward to nip in and finish easily for the opener.
In the 48th minute Leon Winter was adjudged to have brought down a Lambwath player and the resulting penalty was scored to make the game safe at 2-0 .
A Pumas free-kick just before full-time produced a fine save from the visiting gloveman.
Although the Pumas didn’t produce their best football this was a battling effort from all involved and no one gave up against the bigger Lambwath outfit and could have come out of the game with a point if not for a couple of errors.
The Pumas man of the match was Winter, who was solid at the back and didn’t give the Lambwath striker a look at goal.
The other star player was Joel Jewitt in midfield, battling from the off despite a couple of knocks.
