Highlights: Dag & Red 1-5 U18s

28 September 2016

Brandon Thomas-Asante scored twice as MK Dons Under-18s recorded a convincing 5-1 away victory over Dagenham & Redbridge.

Thomas-Asante scored either side of half-time for Ed Rubio’s side, who added further goals through Peter Kioso, Sam Nombe and Dylan Asonganyi.

Kioso opened the scoring after just eight minutes when he latched onto Bradley Bell’s headed flick-on and volleyed past the Daggers goalkeeper. 0-1.

The hosts equalised just seven minutes later despite Nathan Pickworth’s best efforts in the Dons’ goal but Rubio’s team were able to regain the lead before half-time courtesy of Thomas-Asante’s 31st minute penalty. 1-2.
 
Newly-turned pro Thomas-Asante grabbed his second goal of the game 20 minutes into the second half, heading home from close-range after Bell had lifted Kioso’s cross over the goalkeeper to the far post. 1-3.

With three minutes remaining the young Dons extended their lead further through Nombe, who found the net with a terrific right-footed strike across goal. 1-4.

Substitute Asonganyi capped off a fine away performance in stoppage time with a neat finish into the bottom left corner after dummying his man inside the area. 1-5.

Starting XI: Pickworth; Kioso, Jackson (Evans 60), Omar, Stratton (Wright 46); Kasumu, Osei-Bonsu; Nombe, Logan (Asonganyi 78), Bell; Thomas-Asante (Martin 78).
