Report: QPR U18s 2-5 Bristol City U18s

City Under-18s thrashed their QPR counterparts 5-2 after a stunning first-half display.

Trevor Challis’ side found themselves 4-0 up after 30 minutes and the home team never really recovered. 

Cameron Allen got the ball rolling early on, deflecting Opi Edwards’ shot past the QPR goalkeeper. 

Edwards added the second, running through on to Harrison Reeves’ pass and winning the one-on-one battle with the advancing keeper. 

Reeves turned scorer himself soon after with a brilliant individual effort, slotting home after a jinking run. 

The rout continued as Kel Akopbire popped up at the back post to fire home a volley from Edwards’ cross. 

After half-time the Hoops pulled a goal back, but any hopes of a fightback were extinguished as City scored again immediately from the restart. 

Reeves grabbed his second of the game and City’s fifth with another fine solo goal. 

QPR reduced the arrears once more but by then the game was already over as a contest. 

Coach Challis said: “We pressed QPR high up the pitch and created a lot of chances. The most important thing is we were ruthless. We had five chances in the first half hour and scored four times. 

“I’m really pleased with the performance, it’s definitely the best of our season to date.” 

City Under-18s: Carey, Durrent-Williams, Turner (Parsons), Harvey Smith, Ali, Harry Smith (Llewellyn), Morton, Akpobire, Edwards, Reeves (Barry), Allen.
