Seniors newly-formed strike force shows promise
The Fountain 5-3 Bromley Green
Fountain dominated the first half at Sellindge with a four-goal lead. Green rallied but ;eft things too late. Prince Woghiren pulling one back after beating the defender and the goalkeeper and side footing home into the empty net. Fantastic finish! Second goal came from a terrific corner from Saturday Reserve player Kiaran Canton finding Wayne Donovan on his debut with a side footed volley into the far corner. Greens third goal came from great work from Chris Boxshall on the right wing playing in Donovan who unselfishly picked out Prince to finish nicely past the keeper for his second of the game, netting his first goals for the club since his arrival from London. Congratulations to Jake Edwards our Green Player of the Match. Alex Hebbes.
Baypoint 2-3 Bromley Green 3 … photos to follow …
After a 3-3 draw last week at the Waterside, the team approached this week with a big bounce in their step, believing they could go one step after not making their extra player count last week.
The game started and within the first 5 minutes the Greens won a corner on the left which Jamie Turner whipped in to the centre of the box where it was met on the volley by Rhys.
This settled the Greens down and we played some good football, being the superior team.
Midway through the half, a silly foul on the outside of the box led to a free kick which was converted after a good save but the spilt ball was stabbed home by their forward.
5 minutes before the end of the half the opposition defended a greens corner but the ball fell to Riley on the edge of the area who finished with aplomb from the outside of his left foot into the top right corner with the keeper nothing but a spectator.
The second half started and the game became more niggly with lots of fouls committed by both sides.
Midway through the second period, the home team had a corner which was miss-hit and somehow managed to get through PJ and Jamie in goal to level the scores.
This set up a tense finish to the game with both sides desperately wanting the next and hopefully winning goal. Tempers started to fray further but the Greens managed to press more coherently with a breakaway that led to Stevie Outeridge slotting home the winner from 10 yards. The home side pressed more in the final minutes but the defence held firm.
Riley was voted the player of the match in what was a very tough call – when any player could have won the award from today’s game; but the skill in taking his goal put him in front.
It was a great team performance and shows all the players what they can do!
