Royal Navy U23s bounce back to keep Inter Services hopes alive

Despite losing to the Army last week, the Navy could still win the title after beating the RAF in Portsmouth.

The Royal Navy have kept their U23s Inter Services title hopes alive with a win over the RAF in Portsmouth.

A second-half double from Owen Aquilina was the perfect recovery from a disappointing loss to the Army last week.

The RAF did get on the scoresheet as Matt Hendry took advantage of a defensive mistake but a 2-1 loss is not how they wanted to start their tournament.

The Navy will be hoping for a narrow RAF win over the Army in the final game of the tournament as they hope to win the title on goal difference.

The RAF know a big win will see them crowned as champions, while the Army have the simple task of just winning to be victorious.
