Tonbridge Angels Under-18s put in a spirited second half despite going down to 10 men after goalkeeper Keiron Hounsell had been sent off just before half time for foul and abusive language directed at the referee. The goalkeeper felt aggrieved that a challenge at the feet of a Maidstone striker had gone unpunished and vented his anger at the official. Tonbridge went a goal down after eight minutes when the keeper charged 25 yards from his goal to clear but was beaten to it by Lucas Murrain who touched it into the empty net. The visitors increased their lead after 28 minutes when a ball pulled back from the bye-line was touched in by James O'Holoran from close range. Tonbridge responded immediately and after a good effort from Tashi-Jay Kwayie was saved, Oliver Baker rifled home the rebound. The goalkeeper's mad moment made the second half an uphill struggle but they acquitted themselves well and outfield player, Liam Smith made a couple of excellent saves as replacement keeper. Both sides had second half chances, but considering they were a man short the Angels made a good fist of the second period.
