First Team title challenge back on track!

Kensington Dragons 4 v 2 Chiswick

The intent of Dragons’ title ambitions were to be confirmed against Chiswick as to whether they could bounce back after a disappointing defeat last week. A few changes to the line-up were made and the first 20 minutes showed justification if such with possession and chances dominated by the home side but the same lack of decisiveness in front of goal kept it goalless. Chiswick were happy to play on the counter attack and it was from one of these attacks that the score was opened when a raid down the left was not stopped and with time and space granted on the edge of the area, the Chiswick striker curled a neat finish into the net. To the credit of Dragons they did not panic, just continued to create chances and a precise ball from Hamilton Bowler found Steve Cahill who drove into the box and cut back for Geoff Nalu Moso to open his account for the season. One quickly became two for the home side when Chiswick failed to clear a corner allowing Seymour Scott to run at the defender and draw the foul and penalty which was converted by Tom Madden. Just as quickly going into the lead, Dragons were pegged back when Chiswick’s best player on the day capitalised on some weak defending to bring the team in at the break level. A higher intensity was set by the home team after the restart and just over the hour mark Cahill headed in powerfully from a nice ball into the box. Chiswick were all at sea at this point and Nalu Moso was in no mood to let a chance for his brace go by, drilling in a half volley. The score line was flattering to the opposition in the end but Dragons will look to gain momentum from this performance.
