Hardwick A 1, Eaton Socon A 3

21st March 2015 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 3A

After a slow start to the game in blustery conditions Eaton started to control the game from the middle of the park with the instrumental pairing of Dan Smith and James Taylor pulling all the strings. Hardwick were restricted to pop shots from outside the box. Eaton then took a deserved lead when Luke Jakes opened his Eaton account with a fine strike after being played through by player manager Chris French. Eatons defence held strong and went into the break with the lead. The 2nd half once again started slowly for Eaton with Hardwick equalising from a free kick. Not to have there hard work undone Eaton quickly gathered themselves together and started to push again. Eaton took the lead after some great work from Asa Johnson that he finished of at the 2nd attempt. With 10 minutes to go Hardwick throw caution to the wind and went for it but Eatons defence stood strong with 2 fine saves from Joako in the Eaton goal and a goal line clearance from French before some good interplay between Dan Smith and Substitute Rob Hazzard was finished of with the goal of the game when Hazzard let fly from 30 yards to Lob the unfortunate Hardwick Keeper.
