ROTHERFIELD TIGERS U12s maintained top spot in Division 2 of the Berkshire Youth Development League following a 7-3 victory over Burghfield last Saturday.
Burghfield started brightly and took the lead following a neat passing move.
Rotherfield hit back almost instantly to equalise through Charlie Douglas. More attacking pressure by Rotherfield was rewarded with an own goal and another well taken goal by Douglas to give the hosts a 3-1 half-time lead.
In the second half Drew Preston got on the score sheet with a good finish. Soon after Joseph Parkins set up Jasper Hall to fire home United’s fifth of the match.
Ben Morris showed good vision by setting up team mates which caused more havoc in the Burghfield penalty area which eventually led to another two own goals.
In the closing stages Burghfield hit back to score two consolation goals.
