Match report: U18s return to winning form at the Academy

18th February 2017

Liverpool U18s returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Academy on Saturday afternoon.

Glen McAuley provided another glimpse of his potential in front of goal to put the young Reds ahead in the first half, but the visitors quickly drew level through Joshua Hesson’s deflected equaliser.

Neil Critchley’s team took control of the second period and despite the best efforts of the visiting goalkeeper, ultimately claimed the points through Rafael Camacho and Okera Simmonds.

After a period of exerted pressure from the home team in the early stages, McAuley opened the scoring on 24 minutes with his 14th goal of the season.

Finely taken it was too, with the 16-year-old sharply moving onto a pass over the top, striding forward into the space and placing an excellent finish into the bottom corner.

Critchley’s team – without the likes of Yan Dhanda and Conor Masterson, who are currently away with the first team in La Manga – had previously gone close on several occasions.
