Men’s 2XI v Sonning


Men’s 2XI v Sonning

The Men’s 2s beat Sonning 3-1 at home to get back to winning ways despite a truly awful performance in front of a bumper crowd of at least 5.

Dave How gave the reds the lead with a blistering short corner strike through the keepers legs and briefly join Stephen Best as the teams top scorer.

Sonning hit back soon after when the defence fell asleep from a free hit but the top scorer title was quickly regained when Best did what he does best and rifled a drag flick into the roof of the net.

Soon after Gentilezza the Italian maestro dribbled into the D before playing the ball onto a Sonning foot. As the ball trickled toward the line How jabbed the ball over from at least 1 inch to give the team a 3-1 lead. Steve Best called for VAR and a formal protest has been launched to the dubious goals committee in an attempt to award Tiziano the goal. How called the attempt to rob him of a valid goal a travesty.

After that it was all a bit rubbish. The only excitement after that was How shooting from a tight angle when he should have passed to Best (Beat smashed his stick to the ground in rage) and Best shooting from an even tighter angle with how free with a open goal for his hatrick. It would have been interesting how a jug might have swayed the dubious goal panels decision. Sonning missed a flick that was put wide and Captain Mark Bowes went all a bit Chris Hunter and did a lot of moaning and grumping at how none of us could stop the ball or make a simple pass.
