Another win for the 3s. The team has only lost one in the last five and now sit in fifth place, just three points off second with a game in hand. New Beccs dominated a good game and should have scored more. The opposition barely troubled Leon in goal, with Hugh, Ray, Dan and Paul Evans sheparding their attacking players handsomely. They were man-marking the 3s forward players quite effectively but the rotating midfield combo of Will Bishop, Johnny Mac, Vincenzo West, Boris and young Luka Jackson making his debut were getting a good supply forward. Beccs' first goal came when the Bishop brothers combined, Danno feeding Will who carried the ball forward to the last defender before slipping a pass to Steve just inside the D. He finished first time past the advancing keeper. Sevenoaks equalised almost immediately but New Beccs' second came before the half time break. It was almost a carbon copy of the first, this time with Steve the provider and Boris striking past the goalie. At the half time teamtalk New Beccs agreed to play the ball from midfield into wide spaces, which provided many more opportunities for New Beccs to attack. A series of short corners followed without success until Boris pulled of his party piece, accepting the injected ball from Andy Skip and smashing the ball in from a tight angle. Luka had a great game, causing all sorts of havoc with Sevenoaks lumbering midfield.
