Eaton Socon 4, Hemingfords United 0
1st October 2016 :: Premier League Cup
Eaton Socon 4 Hemingfords Utd 0 Eaton booked their place in the quarter finals of the Cambs Premier League Cup with a fine 4-0 win over local rivals Hemingfords. Eaton though are rapidly becoming a second half team as once again they had an awful first half creating nothing of note and allowing Hemingfords to dominate for long periods and it was only the solid back five that kept Eaton from going behind. Though Eaton did come to life in the last ten minutes of the half and man of the match Andy Clare was involved in a lot of the good things Eaton produced. Hemingfords had chances to get in behind the Eaton back four but timed their runs poorly and were constantly caught offside.
So 0-0 at the break and this was the sixth game in a row that Eaton had failed to score in the first half. A change was made at half time with Rhys Williams being introduced to the midfield and Eaton looked once again a diffrent team, and it wasnt long before the deadlock was broken when great work from Micky Banbury found Ben Wilks who toe punted the ball past the Hemingford custodian. Eaton stretched that lead on 57 minutes when great work from Bassett found Banbury in space and he slotted home from close range, and Bassett got on the score sheet himself when again good work from Banbury found Bassett who beat the keeper from six yards. The scoring was completed when Wilks scored his second on 79 minutes and Eaton booked their place in the next round.
The Ressies threw away a two goal lead at Fordham finally going down 3-2. Eaton started brightly and got themselves into a great position with goals from Ward and Stockwell, but Fordham pulled one back before half time and gained the momentum in the second. The cause was not helped by the dismissal of Aiden Stockwell and this allowed Fordham to dominate the game and get the three goals that gave them the points. The Ressies and Sammy ahve lost two close games in revent weeks and will be looking to put that right against Fenstanton next Saturday.
The A team are flying in 3A with a fine 4-2 win at home to Hundon Res. Damien Chamberlain was the hero of the day with all four goals that puts the A team in second place in the league. Another good day for the Eagles and we mpve on to next Saturday.
