Lacy's brace helps Under 18s to impressive win
Sway 4 Christchurch Sports 2
The reds earned their second league win of the season against a well-organised Christchurch Sports at Jubilee Field. Ben Haffenden put Sway ahead early on after Aidan Lacy and Cornwell combined well to put him through. Brad Simpkins added a second thanks to some tricky footwork at the edge of the box. Lacy made it three shortly before half time, rounding two defenders before firing home.
The visitors came out with more determination in the second half and soon broke through from the left to pull one back. With the pressure on, Sway continued to attack and went further ahead when Lacy alluded three defenders down the left before deftly lobbing the keeper from an acute angle. Christchurch added a second with a precise volley but Sway defended resolutely to secure the three points.
The win brought some cheer to Sway supporters this weekend following the first team's 3-1 Cup defeat to first division Bournemouth Poppies Reserves and the Reserves' 7-0 battering to Bisterne United at Jubilee Field.
