Brentham Reserves 2-2 Kensington Dragons Reserves
An injury depleted Dragons squad of 11 arrived in the leafy suburbs of Pitshanger Park looking to grab their first win of the season. They predictably started a little rusty with 8 changes to the starting line up and conceded a very sloppy early goal from a throw in. The recipient was allowed to wander into the penalty area and hook a shot over the stand in goalkeeper Tony Smith. However they roused themselves gallantly with Emannuel Light and Ade Akerdolu beginning to pull the strings in midfield. Hassan Osman was also providing excellent width from left back and from this area a cross was drifted in for Jon Laycock to read the deflection and hook a pass for the onrushing Justas Krisciunas to head home. They were behind again though shortly after, a set piece causing confusion and the second replacement goalkeeper Ramsay McCulloch hesitated and the striker lobbed him. Once again though the Dragons pressed for an equaliser. Laycock turned into space and fed Ramone Bedeau in behind. His Cross shot looked to be heading wide until suddenly Krisciunas ghosted in at the far post for a tap in equaliser.
The second half was a little quieter with Brentham dominating possession but Dragons looking more dangerous. Kirsicunas almost took the 3 points and match ball but just failed to reach a cross with an empty net begging at his mercy. A second draw but again the Dragons can take heart from a performance of true grit. only one point but in difficult circumstances a very good result.
