Celebrations for Baston in cup final
Baston caused an upset as they came from behind to beat Deeping Rangers Blue 2-1 in Sunday’s Peterborough Junior Alliance Under-12 League Cup final.
It represented a first defeat of the season for champions-elect Deeping and saw Baston claim a trophy in their inaugural season.
Baston had the better chances of the first half and went close to opening the scoring in the third minute when Keelan Walker’s header hit the post.
Deeping started the second half brightly and went in front two minutes after the break when Finlay Henderson turned the ball in from a corner.
Baston responded almost immediately and Vinni Ball’s burst forward drew a free-kick on the edge of the area which Oliver Tooth headed into the far corner.
Six minutes later and Baston were in front when Ball launched a throw into the area and Adam Blackbird fired the loose ball home.
Deeping pressed hard for an equaliser in the final quarter of the match but could not breach Baston’s defence again, with James Roberts pulling off two good saves to keep the lead intact.
These two sides will face each other again in the Lincolnshire FA Under-12 Cup final at Stamford on May 6.
