St John's School, Leatherhead Junior A vs Lingfield Notre Dame School
On: Thursday, 16 Mar 2017
Venue: at Home
Against a strong side, the team started well enough, though a lack of successful passing on both sides made for a fraught opening. The early loss of Ewan Armstrong to illness was a hit in defence, but the adding of Sam Laslett and Edward Timpson strengthened the back four. Before long, Luke Read had got the side off the mark, before Will Ferguson put the team 2-0 up on the final whistle of the half. The game was still anyone's, however, with LND hitting back hard and wide. Several short corners later saw the game become scrappy, with some sound saves from Tait van Strien and excellent passing by Peter Sinclair and Billy Bishop saw the boys push on. Luke Read scored a powerful second, before a fired-up Ferguson took the final goal through a short corner to seal the win. An excellent victory against one of the strongest sides we have faced.
