Eagles start with a draw after wonderful Smith free kick earns a deserved point late on

A huge first game in the Foxes League Division 5 for Kibworth Town U12 Eagles versus their local rivals Harborough Town 2012 ended 1 -1 with a glorious goal to cancel out Harborough's first half advantage.

Kibworth debutant Flynn Smith equalised for the Eagles with only 5 minutes remaining, curling a 30 yard free kick into the top left corner of Harborough's net.

The first half saw Harborough break the deadlock in a closely fought match between two very determined sides. Samuel Allen, in goal for the Eagles, was unlucky to concede from Adam Flood's long range effort.

Tremendous work by Archie Weatherill to drive from midfield and slot an incisive pass to Edward Seabrook almost saw Kibworth draw level before the break but Seabrook saw his whipped shot miss settling inside the far post by a matter of inches.

In the ascendance now, Harry Moran, Jasper Hammonds, Weatherill and Will Long all combined with quick interchanges to find Benjamin Bashford with a great chance in the penalty area for the move to end in a free kick to Harborough for handball.

Into the second half, Eagles' Captain Felix Munden and Matthew Hill were working tirelessly in the centre of the park to keep the ever impressive Harborough midfielders under control.

Jake Burden and Hammonds, looking composed in a new look central defensive pairing, were growing in confidence and started to put their stamp on the game, inviting both Smith on the left and Long on the right wing to push into the last third and attack the Harborough full backs.

Another good chance for Bashford ended up wide of the left post and minutes later Seabrook was denied a clear shot by the reactions of the quickly advancing Harborough keeper, Tom Perry.

Last Season's Player of the Year, Moran, giving his usual busy performance, was felled 30 yards from goal whilst attempting to spin past his defender. Up stepped Smith to even the score.

Inspired by the strike, it was the Eagles, with their tails up, who finished the game stronger and could have taken the points after Hammonds saw a 25 yarder saved once again by Perry.

Overall, a fair result, and both teams should look forward to the season with optimism.
