REPORT: FULHAM 2-2 UNDER-18s

4 March 2017

Three own goals mean points shared at Motspur Park

NORWICH City's Under-18s drew 2-2 with Fulham at Motspur Park on Saturday in the Under-18s Premier League.

Both sides struggled to break the deadlock in the first half, with the hosts having the better of the chances, but City absorbed Fulham's pressure well to keep the game goalless going into the break.

The opening goal of the game came in the 52nd minute when Joe Felix had his shot blocked, the resulting corner floated into the box and City stopper Jon McCracken fumbled the ball into his own net under pressure.

The Whites extended their lead eight minutes later when Nicolas Santos-Clase picked up the ball on the halfway line and ran until he was in a one v one situation with McCracken before neatly finishing past the Scotland international.

The Canaries got one back in the 64th minute with the ball being well worked into Fulham's box before Felix's clearance bounced off of his own 'keeper and into the net.

Three minutes later City were level thanks to another own goal. This time Kieran Higgs drilled a cross that struck Felix before bulging the back of his own net.

The young Canaries finished eighth in the league and are now unbeaten in their last three games.
