From the Club website....

QPR Under-18s left it late to win in dramatic style against Swansea City at Heston on Tuesday afternoon.

The R’s started brightly and got an early lead on 10 minutes through Chima Eze. The ball was crossed in deep and played back across goal by Omar Eisa to Eze, who side-footed it home from just inside the six-yard box.

The Super Hoops continued to press and looked to extend their lead, again through Eze who had a couple chances just before half-time.

Into the second half, and Eze received the ball with his back to goal on the edge of the box before laying it off to Micah Anthony, whose shot looked destined to ripple the net before smashing against a defender’s face.

The Swans then started to grow into the game and eventually equalised 13 minutes into the closing period, as Rio Campbell shot low and hard into the bottom corner.

Furlong’s men subsequently pushed to try and re-establish their advantage. They almost did so following a corner that was only half cleared as far as Henry Hawkins, but his shot was just wide.

With 73 minutes on clock, Deon Woodman made an excellent challenge on the halfway line to win back possession, Micah Anthony then picked up the loose ball and broke down the right before playing it across to Harun Hamid, whose shot was saved by the Swans’ goalkeeper.

Hamid was then at the heart of the action once more, showing neat footwork to skip away from a couple of defenders before laying the ball off to Elijah Anthony, but his shot went marginally wide of the post.

With seven minutes to go, the R’s retook the lead from a Harrison Murphy free-kick which was whipped in and headed home by Hamid, who used the pace on the ball to direct it goalwards past a stranded Swansea goalkeeper.

Then, one minute into stoppage time, Swansea were awarded a penalty which was converted by Cameron Congrev, leaving sub 'keeper Harry Cant with little chance.

But just when it looked like the R’s were going to drop two points, up stepped Murphy on a free-kick which he whipped over the wall and against the underside of the bar.

Many thought the ball had dropped over the goal-line until the linesman put his flag up and the referee signalled for an offside. However, the linesman called the referee over to let him know the ball had indeed crossed the line!

The referee then pointed to the centre circle, which was met by a delighted roar from the Rangers bench. This was the last kick of the game, with the R’s running out 3-2 winners in dramatic style.

QPR: Little (Cant 76), Jude-Boyd (E. Anthony 45), Bagan, Aoroha (M. Anthony 45), Woodman, Hawkins, Obeng, Hamid, Eze, Murphy, Eisa.
