Eaton Socon A 1, Melbourn FC 2

16th January 2016 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 3A

Eaton Socon 'A' began the first twenty minutes of this game positively with Asa Johnson and Damien Chamberlain causing the Melbourn back four havoc. Unfortunately that's as good as it got for the first half for Eaton Socon 'A'. Melbourn took the lead with a great passage of play and the ball was slotted home.

The second half began and Melbourn began where they left off, piling the pressure on Eaton Socon 'A'. Melbourn earned themselves a second when a cross was not dealt with and left the ball three yards out for the Melbourn striker to grab a tap in. With twelve minutes gone in the second half, Eaton's Dave Watts saw red for a mistimed tackle that could of gone either way. Eaton Socon 'A' then managed to find a way back through grit and determination with ten men, when a brilliant ball from James Taylor in midfield found Asa Johnson through on goal and it was duly dispatched. Eaton Socon 'A' then continued to try and pile on the pressure but it proved to be to little to late for the Eaton lads.
