18s extend winning run

4 May 2021

The Owls’ Under-18s continued their recent purple patch with a 4-2 win at Swansea.

An entertaining contest saw goals from Will Trueman, Alex Bonnington and Caelen Kilheeney ahead of a Jay Glover penalty secure a fourth successive victory.

Ben Lloyd and a Charlie Curtis own goal got the Swans on the scoresheet but Wednesday, who were in charge for large throes of the games, just had too much on the day.

The visitors were in front after 11 minutes when Trueman pounced on a loose ball before beating two defenders and drilling into the bottom corner.

Wednesday promptly doubled their lead on 22 minutes. An inviting Glover set piece delivery found Corey Glaves, who span his marker to tee up Bonnington and the skipper finished from close range.

Swansea rallied but the Owls were too strong and it was 3-0 six minutes before the break. This time Paulo Aguas was the provider, laying off neatly for Kilheeney to fire beyond the diving Alex Rutter.

There was a lifeline for the home side three minutes later as good work from Cameron Congreve gave Lloyd a clear sight on goal on the edge of the area and the forward made no mistake.

But any hopes of Swansea mounting a comeback were extinguished on 58 minutes. Basile Zottos was tripped in the area by Ryan Bassett and the impressive Glover stepped up to convert from 12 yards.

The Owls maintained their grip on the game and might have further extended their lead only to be caught on the counter and a combination of Lloyd and Curtis in the air saw Joel Cotterill’s corner fly into the net.

That was the last action of note and Wednesday will look to end their season on a high against Birmingham for the final game of the season next Saturday at Middlewood Road.

Wednesday: Hare, Curtis, Aguas (Sesay 89), Glover, Glaves, Yates, Zottos, Kilheeney (Davidson 81), Bonnington, Trueman (Ashfa 73), Hall
