Sawston United 2, Eaton Socon 6
4th October 2014 :: Premier League Cup
Eaton went into the game knowing Sawston would be keen for revenge after a recent defeat in the league.
Sent out to start quickly Eaton did just that with crisp passing and movement from the off. They were rewarded in the first 4 mins, when a dangerous cross from 1st team debutant Dan Fanconi wasn't dealt with by the Sawston Keeper, and Adam Boothby pounced to make it 1 - 0. The second came from a well delivered Dave Watts corner, met by some great movement from Boothby at the front post. Boothby was again involved in the third, too hot to handle for the Sawston defence. Drawing a foul 25yds from goal, Scott Kingsbury then struck a well hit effort from the resulting free kick that found the back of the net. Eaton were to get the fourth by half time with another pin point corner from the impressive Dave Watts, met by Dan Woodhead whose downward header gave the keeper little chance.
The second half started slower and Sawston scored against the run of play, before Eaton's defensive stalwart Dan Woodhead was injured with a late tackle that left him needing hospital treatment. With Woodhead off it took time to adjust and Sawston were able to score a second. With Sawston having the momentum Eaton needed to get back to a passing game, denying their opponents the ball. This paid off with a quality passing move resulting in Boothby being brought down in the penalty area, and then scoring his hat-trick from the spot to make it 5-2. Eaton them dominated the game through Davies and Kay, before a tireless display from Kingsbury was again rewarded when he found space and clinically finished to make it 6 - 2.
A notable display from the lads with Kay being awarded MOM. Managers Kevin and Chris were impressed with the performances of everyone, and of note was an ever improving Andy Clare who is developing into a constant threat for opposing teams, as well as offering quality work in our own half.
