Little Paxton

THE U8s suffered their first defeat of the season, when they lost 3-1 at home to Ramsey B.

In a game that was pretty much end-to-end, it was Ramsey who took advantage of

Paxton's misses.

Paxton took the lead midway through the first period when a long range shot from Sean Haran took a horrible bobble just as the goalkeeper was about to make a simple save, and the ball ended up in the net.

That was pretty much it for Paxton after that, as they spent the rest of the game chasing down a hard working Ramsey side.
