Eaton Socon 7 Fowlmere 3
And so the curtain comes down on another league season and Eaton's victory tonight could see them finish third .. their highest ever finish in the Cambs Premier. With the Eagles winning their last three league games and Lakenheath losing tonight and on Saturday Eaton suddenly have a great chance of grabbing that third spot. Tonight though (even though the score suggests otherwise) they were made, for the first half at least to battle for the three points. The night started brightly as Dean Parratt latched on to a Mayson Byatt pass and Cooly finished.. 1-0 on three minutes. But Fowlmere who are in a real relegation battle really put Eaton to the sword for the next 35 minutes.. David McDorough scored a well taken goal to level things up, and minutes later poor marking at a corner saw Fowlmere take the lead. Fowlmere continued to dominate up to the 40th minute, but allowed Eaton the chance to equalise but Bassetts effort was saved. So 2-1 down at half time .. a few well chosen words and Eaton came out and equalised within 30 seconds when a great ball in from Byatt eluded everyone and a Fowlmere defender put through his own goal. One minute later Eaton had the lead.. a great ball from Spavins down the right found Bassett racing clear and he despatched the ball past the advancing Fowlmere keeper. And it got worse for Fowlmere as Eaton scored their third goal in four minutes when Bassett and Parratt interchanged passes and Parratt raced clear to make it 4-2.. some start to the second half. Fowlmere were under the cosh and the lively Parratt hit the post .. then had another great chance but shot straight at the keeper.. he just could not finish his hat trick. And as always Eaton were made to pay when Fowlmere pulled a goal back to make it 4-3.. however the game went back Eaton's way a minute later when Fox finished smartly to make it 5-3 .. Whittingham then made it six and to put the cherry on the cake goalkeeper Andrew Wale slotted home the 7th from the penalty spot. So it finished 7-3.. this was the Eagles 20th win of season.. so on to Bank Holiday Monday at the Cambs Kershaw League Cup Final.. another huge game and a chance to put another trophy in the cabinet .. but I am sure Lakenheath will have other ideas ...
