Maidenbower Colts U15 Black Team boosted their promotion charge after winning a titanic tussle with local rivals Panthers.
Colts produced their best performance of the campaign to settle a derby-day clash that had drama, excitement, and a contender for goal of the season.
Man-of-the-match Leo capped a talismanic display by giving Colts an early lead with a free kick from the halfway line that deceived the keeper.
Panthers hit back with two quickfire goals before JP slotted a deserved equaliser from just inside the box.
Jakub then conjured up a magical winner with a 25-yard thunderbolt that flew into the top corner.
It was an outstanding effort from Colts, who defended resolutely and stamped their passing game on the midfield.
Manager Mitch Parratt said: “I am so proud of all of them. The starting XI were brilliant, as were the subs. This shows if we play our game, we can beat anyone.”
