RUFC - Youth lose out to Owls

Rotherham United Youth Team Coach, Steve Thornber was proud of the side after last nights narrow at Don Valley to Sheffield Wednesday Youth in the FA Youth Cup.

A last gasp winner from the Owls beat the nine man Millers side, in extra time. The Owls went in front on sixty-four minutes when Mitch Husbands lobbed the ball over Dan Hancock in the Millers' goal. Conor Hiley got an equaliser on eighty-six minutes and three minutes later Joe Gaughan looked to have won it for the Millers. The Owls were rescued in the fourth minute of time added on when Jack Poulton put the ball in the net from fifteen yards out. The Millers went down to nine men during extra time when both Hiley and Fylton-Brown had to go off with what is thought to be hamstring injuries and within seconds of the game going to a penalty shoot-out Paddy Lacey gave the visitors a victory.

Speaking to MillersPlayer after the game, Thornber said that he thought it was the loss of two men that lost them the game, saying, 'they did ever so well but in the end it did tell.

'I thought we struggled a little bit in the first half but in the second period I thought we got on the ball a little bit better but when we went down to eight men it was too much.

'It was a spirited display and we were six seconds away from winning the tie and then ten seconds away from penalties. There are a lot of disappointed people in that dressing room but it's something they can be proud of because we played an Academy team and we pushed them all the way and all in all it's a good learning process for them.'
