First Team secure the points

Lancaster 1 v Kensington Dragons 3

The week off did nothing to help the team’s rhythm on the pitch or so it appeared in the opening exchanges in the game where the tempo and quality were lower than expected.  This was matched by limp attempts off the ball to regain possession and the inevitable happened ten minutes in when a counter attack by Lancaster split the defence and the striker calmly opened the scoring.  Dragons however would not wait long to reply as on fifteen minutes a cross from Scott was fumbled by the keeper and Madden was on hand to get back amongst the goals. Five minutes later a goal mouth scramble from a corner fell nicely to the returning Bangoo who placed Dragons in the lead with a controlled shot. This was to be Dragons most productive spell in the match as the half ended and second half began with Dragons taking the lion’s share of possession with but a lack of quality and incisiveness leading to no end product. With that said and seven minutes to go, a good counter attack allowed Nalu-Moso to find Soussi and his finish matched the pass. An opportunity missed in regards to improving the goal difference but the three points remain the priority.
