Longstanton FC 0, Eaton Socon A 2

21st September 2019 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 3A

The A team finally got there season underway on there third attempt this season. After a disappointing couple of loses Eaton found themselves playing against a well organised longstanton team. But Eaton finally begun a game with energy and urgency that was needed and created the best opportunity of the half when the front two caused a defensive error and Damian chamberlain was put through, unfortunately the keeper made a great save and it stayed 0-0 at half time. Eaton kept the pressure on and it finally payed off with Sam Ward being fouled inside the box. Sam then got up and dispatched the penalty emphatically sending the keeper the wrong way. Eaton seemed to have extended there lead 10 minutes later, from a long throw from Dexter saw the ball poorly cleared which was then crossed back in by Dexter for Sam Ward to nicely side foot into the bottom corner, only to be disallowed by a questionable offside decision. This was not to matter as 10 minutes later the sustained pressure from Eaton lead to a corner, where Ashley Howard nodded the ball home at the far post! 2-0! Next Saturday sees the A team playing away at Hampton in the cup.
