Reds reserves concede late goal to lose 2-1 to Aucklanders

posted in: Men, News, Northern League

Cambridge’s reserves ended their season with a narrow loss when they conceded in the 88th minute to provide visitors Metro FC with a 2-1 victory.  

The loss was a bitter pill for the Reds as their form since mid-June has been much-improved and their last six games decided by single goal margins.

Cambridge took the lead in the Lotto NRFL second division reserves encounter through Devon Andrews in the 25th minute.

However Metro’s Sam Adeyinka found an equaliser just four minutes later.

The teams turned around 1-1 at John Kerkhof Park.

Both teams generated chances in the second half but Metro’s captain Kieran Sulikosky scored the winner with time almost up.

The result means Cambridge finishes 10th in this season’s reserves competition.
