Hillingdon Abotts 1 v 7 Kensington Dragons Firsts
Dragons were able to go ahead with their game on a weekend that could have easily been another postponement. The pitch was very heavy and in no way lent to the Dragons style of play. With that said, the team started brightly and used their initiative to understand what type of football would be most effective in what part of the pitch. This quick adaptation to the conditions allowed them to take the lead in ten minutes when Madden put Soussi in the clear who finished with ease. Fifteen minutes had elapsed until the next goal and it was the same combination that made and scored it. The half continued with an array of missed chances with Madden and O’ Donoghue rattling the woodwork. The opposition in one of their limited possessions in the Dragons half created a corner and poor defending allowed a free header and a goal back. Knowing that as a team their football would still create chances meant there was no need to panic. Nalu Moso was crudely taken down in the box and had to come off with injury leaving Madden to step up and convert the spot kick with some precision.
The Second half took the same amount of time to get into the swing of things and a good bit of football ended with Scott crossing to Salmin to score his first. The bit was between the Dragons teeth and wave after wave of attack then ensued but with no end product until the last fifteen minutes when Salmon, Soussi and a first club goal for Malone completed the scoring with a satisfactory goal margin on a frustrating and in areas unplayable pitch.
