Match Report - 15 May 2011, Maclay Football Club Red drew with Echoes (FINAL)
Maclay were unlucky to lose this WHYL U15 Senior League Cup Final on penalties to a very hard working Echoes team. What made things worse was the fact that Maclay were only 3 minutes away from victory when Echoes equalised.
Echoes took the lead after 6 minutes despite Maclay creating a number of good chances before that. Chris Heath equalised with a strong header in the 26th minute and the teams were even at half time. Maclay found things a lot easier in the 2nd half with the strong wind behind them and Jack Wiggs' goal gave them a deserved 2-1 lead before Echoes late equaliser. Extra time was fairly uneventful although Maclay came closest to snatching a winner.
The inevitable penalty shoot out saw Maclay hit the target with all 8 penalties but ultimately lose 5-6 when the Echoes keeper made some fine saves.
Echoes (FINAL) 2 - 2 Maclay Football Club Red (Lost 5-6 on penalties)
