CB Hounslow Social Reserves 0 v 3 Kensington Dragons Reserves
Kensington Dragons Reserves faced C.B. Hounslow Reserves in an away league game. All the team had to do, was to bring another 3 points to stay alive in the run in for the league championship!
There were 3 changes in the line up. Matt Finch came back on the left side of the defence line. On the right played James Shirley and in front of him ‘new- old’ Steven Cahill. As both flanks were almost brand new the core of the team stayed the same with all the supporters looking forward with confidence and hope for a win.
The first half of the game was boring and very unfortunate for the Dragons. The opponents had a simple strategy; kick the ball as far away from their own goal as possible and apart from 2 shots on target they didn’t do anything. Unfortunately Dragons were far away from their normal level. Most of the time the ball stayed in the central area and neither team could force their own patterns of play.
The half time team talk was needed to get the team back to their ‘Dragons’ game. The players responded and took the lead a few minutes after the game restart. Elhabib Oumar opened the game when he dribbled through the opponent’s defenders to score another goal to add to his season tally. 2 minutes later Kamal scored his first goal for the Dragons after Andrew Scheck’s low cross into the box and gave a 2 goal advantage for the away team. It was clear that nothing wrong could happen from this point and the coaching team decided to make 2 subs. Justas Krisciunas replaced Elhabib Oumar and Mo Al Faisal replaced team captain Adam Finch. A few minutes later Jamanhi Henry scored the 3rd goal and Dragons took all that they wanted. Another 3 points see Kensington Dragons Reserves at the top of the table with 3 games to play. A clean sheet for the team saw the man of the match award go to CB John Hammond.
