After last weeks fairly straight forward win the 3's were back in cup action against Reigations AFC.
Admittedly we had never heard of them, and our homework led us to believe this could have been fairly straight forward.
Difficult week with 17 players available to skipper Green, but a problem you want more often.
Team was pretty much the same as the previous week, with Lee coming back in for Williams the only change.
Reddington and Howard returned to make it definitely our strongest squad this season.
Back on our "home" pitch over the allotments this allowed our midfield to get on top of the opposition from the kick off.
It only took 5 mins for the pressure to tell.
Good work from Porky down the left led to a free kick near the touch line about 30 yards from goal.
Green stepped up to send a low fizzing ball into the back post that nobody could get a touch on, so flew into the back of the net.
We continued to stay on top, but a bit of confusion at the back from one of the many long punts from the back allowed the ball to drop to their number 9 who (I believe) just threw his toe at the ball and luckily flew past the unused Jack.
Undeserved but annoyingly typical of us at times over the last few years.
They had a bit of possession after the goal, but was quickly snuffed out with 2 quick goals.
Porky found himself clean through on goal with Green square or the keeper to beat, he chose to lob the keeper who got a hand on the ball, but the ball was rolling to the net.
With a covering defender closing in, Green made sure of the goal by tapping in.
Less than 5 mins later a great ball from a White corner allowed Hunt to rise like a salmon to power the ball home.
We had a number of chances to extend, a well saved volley and a free kick off the bar from Green probably the best of them.
Complete domination in the middle allowed for the amount of chances we had.
Green made all 3 changes at half time, and one instantly paid off.
From the KO a long throw from Howard was flicked on by Hunt, Green brought the ball down with his left foot then back heel volleyed the ball in with his right.
The oppo started to tire badly, and we made full use of the rolling subs by changing it every ten minutes.
There was still time for a quick time Porky double, both goals similar both excellent finishes low under the keeper.
And both goals included great build up play with Green, Howard and Amico interchanging passes on both occasions.
We got un-done with another long toe punt up field with Jack left in no mans land and to be fair a decent finish by their forward to make it 6-2, this concluded the scoring for the day.
We move on to the 3rd round of the AFA cup against Nottsborough (at home), with a good chance to dump one of the favourites out before the final stages.
