Eaton Socon res. 5, Farcet United 1
6th October 2018 :: Hunts Junior Cup
Eaton progressed into the 1/4 finals of the county cup with a convincing victory.
Despite starting brightly, Eaton had Simon White in the Eaton goal with an excellent save down to his right and a Ryan Barnett goal line clearance to keep the scores level. Eaton Finally opened the scoring through a well struck long range effort from Ryan Barnett after a short free kick.
Although not looking in danger of losing the game Eaton struggled to get going in the second half and paid the penalty when another defensive slip was punished with the equaliser. This seemed to spur the home side on and after good work from Lee Griffiths earned Eaton a penalty, Griffiths picked himself up to cooly send the ‘keeper the wrong way and give the home side the lead again.The home side soon made the game safe when Luke Fox deservedly got on the score sheet, but not before another superb save from Simon White, tipping over a Close range header, had kept the home side in front. Kyle Morris got goal number 4 for the home side before skipper Andy Coles scored the goal of the game, ghosting past a couple of defenders before cooly chipping the ‘keeper from 20yds to seal the victory.
M.O.M went to Kyle Martin
