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.
