Forss on target as youngsters draw at Everton

Baggies halt losing streak

ALBION’s Under-18 side earned a credible 1-1 draw at Everton on Saturday morning – a result which ended a run of five straight defeats.

Marcus Forss put the Baggies ahead after just 90 seconds with a smart finish from inside the penalty area following impressive work by Taylor Morrison down the left.

The hosts grabbed an equaliser before half-time and threw plenty of pressure at Albion after the restart, however Jamie Smith’s men stood firm and held out to claim a share of the spoils.

ALBION: Keranovic, Meredith, Piggott, O’Shea, Morrison, Tulloch (Holsgrove 23 (Wilding 75)), Nabi, Dool, Bradley, Forss, Pierce (McCourt 90).

Unused subs: Pryzbek, Artymatas.
