Everton U18s lose to a late goal against Liverpool in mini-derby

Everton U18s are at the Liverpool Academy to take on their local rivals in the U18 Premier League on Saturday morning.

The Blues were trailing 1-0 at half-time, having fallen behind to a goal inside the first minute. It was somewhat unlucky as Zan Luk-Leban had made a smart save only to the loose ball cannon off a Liverpool player and into the net.

The young Everton side did everything but score in the rest of the match, putting on a fine show until added time when they thought they'd salvaged a share of the spoils, with substitute Rafa Garcia fouled inside the box. Tom Cannon kept his composure to successfully convert the penalty to seemingly rescue a point before, unbelievably, they gave up a late goal to present Liverpool with a 95th-minute winner.

Everton U18s: Leban, Mallon (72' Quintyne), Lowey [Y:76'], Kristensen, Welch [Y:42'], Hagan, McAllister (68' Jagne [Y:76']), Butterfield, Cannon, Warrington (79' Garcia) Whitaker.
Subs not Used: Stewart.

Tom Cannon scored a penalty in the last minute of ordinary time, than Liverpool scored the winner in the last minute of the game, thus scoring in the first minute and the last minute of the match – this is according to an Evertonian on another thread.

Must have been too windy.
