PUBLISHED: 17:50 14 March 2017
Diss Tigers U15s fell a goal down in the first minute and went on to lose 5-2 against Ely.
The game was then end-to-end, with Diss applying pressure before Mower put in a teasing cross which Charlie Norman did well to keep in and square to Andrews who scored from 10 yards.
Olly Budd and Cheal-Ferris were commanding in midfield and Andrews was tireless and Cameron Barnes met a corner to head home for Diss to take the lead. Just before half-time a break from Ely saw them make it 2-2.
Diss were sloppy at the start of the second half and gave away a goal. The game flowed and following a quick break, Ely made it 4-2 from a free-kick.
A number of changes were made to the Diss line-up and they continued to press, but no clear-cut chances for Diss were forthcoming. Another break from Ely resulted in their centre forward going through the middle on his own to dispatch Ely’s fifth of the match.
