City suffer defeat in FA Youth Cup

17th September 2018

City's Under-18s have gone out of the FA Youth Cup tonight following a 3-1 defeat at Tadcaster Albion.

Two goals in the final six minutes of the game by Albion striker Jon-Paul Vass took the Brewers into the second qualifying round.

City had initially fallen behind in the 16th minute when Jon-Paul Turbine beat goalkeeper Jake Teale to a cross and turned the ball home from 12 yards.

The home side had been put under pressure for long periods and Aston Harrison nearly levelled on the stroke of halftime when his curling shot came back off the post.

Teale made a fine save with his legs to keep out a far post header from Vass in the 61st minute and City got back on level terms five minutes later when Albion defender Mikey Hodgson turned a cross from Nathan Dyer past his own goalkeeper.

The game looked to be heading for extra-time until Vass ran onto a long ball over the top of the City defence and lobbed goalkeeper Teale with six minutes to play.

Vass scored his second goal of the night five minutes later when drilling home from the edge of the box as City attempted to clear a freekick.
