3-0 loss for youngsters
THREE late Sunderland goals condemned Albion’s Under-18 side to a heavy defeat on Saturday in the Barclays U18 Premier League.
Tyler Roberts and James Smith both had chances during a tight opening 45 minutes, but neither forward could break the deadlock.
With the encounter seemingly heading for a goalless draw, the visitors found an extra gear and opened the scoring in the 78th minute.
The Black Cats then added two more goals in the last six minutes to inflict a 3-0 defeat on the Baggies youngsters.
ALBION: Hall, Wilson, Barbir, O’Shea, McCourt, Field, Edwards, Elbouzedi (R. Nabi 78), Scrivens, Smith, Roberts.
Unused subs: Pryzbek, Pierce, Okoh, Piggott.
