Under 14's Victory
On Friday 9th October, the Under 14's Football Team, played their first fixture of the season in the West Lothian School Sports League, in an away game to James Young High School in Livingston. They produced an excellent comeback to take all three points in a 4-3 victory. After dominating possession in the early stages and creating a number of good chances, unfortunately these could not be converted. As a result James Young took confidence from this and started to impose themselves on the match. Against the run of play James Young took the lead with a neat finish. However, this only seemed to motivate the Whitburn team who again quickly took a stronghold in the match. Driven on by Kay and Gourlay the boys were soon level and raced into a 4-1 lead with some excellent finishes and link-up play from Kay and Gourlay. Despite a late rally from James Young including a missed penalty to level the game our U14's managed to see the game out for a well deserved first victory of the season.
Final Score: James Young HS 3 - 4 Whitburn Academy
