U18 Report & Goals: Barnsley 2-1 Crewe

26 October 2017

Lee Bell's Crewe Alexandra Under 18's were unfortunate to lose out 2-1 at Barnsley.

Luke Walsh once again got on the score-sheet, but it wasn't enough as the Tykes struck a goal either side of Walsh's effort & then clung on to record all three points.

The hosts took the lead in scrappy fashion, a deep corner from the right was headed towards goal, & the forward pounced to fire in the loose ball after a couple of blocks.

Crewe drew level before half-time when Joe Thompson did well down the left to get to the by-line & commit the goalkeeper, before cutting back for Walsh to steer into the nearside corner.

But despite the heavy spells of pressure from Crewe, Barnsley re-took the lead when the tricky winger cut inside & teed up a striker for a shot that bounced back off the post, only for it to fall to another Tykes man to steer in low at the near post.

Crewe pressed & continued to dominate as they looked for the elusive leveller, and it so nearly came in injury time when Walsh hit the post with a good strike - but it wasn't to be.

Crewe: Booth, Manuel, Sass-Davies (Offord), Barlow, Adibisi, Griffiths, Lynch, Heath (Linton), C.Johnson (Nunn), Walsh, Thompson
