Wednesday’s Under-18s went down 1-0 to Crewe in harsh circumstances on Saturday.
Despite a promising start and even better finish, the Owls returned over the Pennines with nothing to show for their efforts.
They began the game well and came close to taking the lead, hitting both the post and crossbar.
But as the Owls continued to press, they were hit on the counter just before the interval and went down the tunnel 1-0 behind.
Wednesday went on to dominate the second half, creating a wave of chances but a combination of the woodwork again and dogged defending kept the visitors at bay.
The Under-18s are next in action against local rivals Sheffield United next Saturday, 5 December at Middlewood Road (12.30pm).
Entrance is free and all supporters are welcome to attend.
