Excellent dying swan impression
Numbers were never going to be a problem this week with so many keen to repeat our early season victory against Wisbech but on home territory this time. Thanks to those who kindly agreed to step aside this weekend or make the three day round trip to Spalding with the M4s!
Once the usual late afternoon lethargy had been overcome the home team found their groove and started to pressurise the Wisbech defence. Our efforts were soon rewarded with an early short corner which MoM, Simon T, fired into the top corner of the net with deadly precision. The South midfield and forwards continued to press and one such attack ended with Howard S scooping the ball from underneath the grounded Wisbech keeper towards John G, waiting to unleash a very elegant reverse sweep into the unprotected goal. Another skillful strike from Rupert E left the home team with a comfortable three goal lead at half-time.
The second half started with one of the Wisbech players taking a nasty blow to the side of the head from a deflected Simon T shot. After a visit to our on-site A&E department we understand he is absolutely fine and very proud of his wound!
Another Simon T strike found Howard S lurking in front of goal, ready to instinctively deflect the ball into an open net and deprive his fellow midfielder of what would have been a well deserved hat-trick, for which the latter received several well deserved LoM votes!
Despite some opposition adventures into the South D, which were skillfully neutralised by our defence and some instinctive saves from keeper Michael G, the home team continued to dominate for the remainder of the second half with further goals from Simon T and the irrepressible Rob B.
MoM overwhelmingly went to Simon T for an outstanding performance that helped inspire a famous M5s' victory.
LoM went to John G for tying his legs in knots with an opponent's stick and ending up face down on the astro.
Our unbeaten record in 2019 continues!
