The young ‘Caps started things off quickly at Swangard Stadium, as midfielder Vasco Fry won a ball inside the box and directed his shot into the top right corner of the net in the second minute of the match to give the home side the early 1-0 advantage.

In the 17th minute, Elagbe Bah lofted an over the top through ball to forward Simon Becher, who’s shot went right outside the far post.
