Chapman Scores In AFC Wimbledon U/21 Draw

February 8, 2017

Bermuda’s Judah Chapman scored in the 68th minute for the AFC Wimbledon Under 21 team as they played to a 1-1 draw against Barnet.

The club’s match report said, “An impressive performance from our Under-21s just failed to yield the ultimate reward at Barnet.

“Judah Chapman’s goal in the 68th minute appeared to be enough for victory in a Central League Cup group match at The Hive, but Joe Payne levelled matters in the latter stages and it ended 1-1.

“Under-18 midfielder Chapman, who was handed a start after his fine displays in the FA Youth Cup run, looked well at home alongside Dan Gallagher, and he sent through a lovely ball that fed Toyosi Olusanya, but his claims for a penalty were turned down.

“As the first-half progressed, Wimbledon began to really spread the ball about effectively and a fine move involving Kaja and Oakley set-up a shooting chance for Olusanya, but his shot was blocked.

“With an hour on the clock, striker Jayden Antwi entered the fray for Olusanya – and it didn’t take long for the substitute to make an impact.

“Wimbledon’s top scorer at Under-18 level turned provider when he twisted and turned to create space on the left, before sending over a great cross that Chapman diverted in via the crossbar with an athletic finish.

“Wimbledon did not settle for just the one and a fine lob to the back post from Bellikli just evaded everyone in the middle. A second goal just would not come as the match entered its final stages and Barnet punished Wimbledon for failing to make the most of their opportunities.

“With three minutes to go, Joe Payne was allowed too much space on the left to run through on goal and he produced a lovely finish that left Joe McDonnell with no chance. ”
