Pompey 3 v 2 Pirates
November 6, 2016
Youth Alliance South West Division Season 2016/17 Update.
Going 3-0 behind in the first half leaves a mountain to climb.
Bristol Rovers Academy lost on Saturday 5th November 2016 to Portsmouth Academy.
The Pompey Academy side won 3-2 in a game of two contrasting halves.
Pompey survived a strong fightback to secure a victory over Bristol Rovers at Furze Lane.
They took a first half lead when a long throw was flicked on for Theo Widdrington to nod home.
Matt Mayes scored a second before Harvey Bradbury neatly finished to make it 3-0 at the break.
In a dominant second half display, Jordan Carey and Lewis Ellington scored for Bristol Rovers.
There was a nervy finale, but Pompey saw out the final 10 minutes to claim victory.
Just as in the recent Exeter City fixture the BRFC youngsters gave themselves a mountain to climb.
Matches in the Youth Alliance South West Division on 5th November were:
Cheltenham Town 1 v 3 Oxford United
