Our remembrance weekend game against ISCA was played at Bull Point this Saturday.
We held a minutes silence before the game, which was impeccably observed by both teams and supporters.
Dominic Lyons continued his rich vein of scoring form with an absolute rocket from a short corner that despite the keeper getting a touch, he couldn’t keep out.
Debutant Jack Green continued the scoring with an initial saved shot that the keeper parried straight back to him and he finished easily.
Jack continued to cause problems down the left have side with his pace and skill which ISCA struggled to deal with for the duration.
John A Rigby got amongst the goals too to make it 3-0 with his trademark work-rate and vigor paying off in the final third.
ISCA, who had been threatening throughout did get a goal back through a pin point drag flick from a short corner to make it 3-1.
Dom Lyons however wasn’t willing to let them get back into the game so easily, when he intercepted the keepers clearance to finish with aplomb to take us in at the break 4-1, and take his tally for the season to 8 goals in 7 games.
We came out of the blocks a bit slow in the second half and ISCA dialled up the pressure.
A mistake in defence did gift our opposition a goal, with them also getting another short corner which they scored from to take the scoreline to 4-3.
It could have been more had it not been for some excellent shot stopping from resident man mountain Geoff Flowers.
Rather than panic and drop back we continued to play our game, and with James Vine and John Brown standing tall at the back and despite ISCA pushing higher and higher they were unable to get through.
Ewan Dodson continued his fantastic form on his return from injury and he scored a great goal to take the score to 5-3.
Just before the end of the game, a diagonal crossfield pass from Jon Shaw was taken in his stride by John Rigby, who supplied Ewan Dodson who chipped the ball over the keeper in a goal any striker would be proud of.
The game finished 6:3 against an excellent and feisty ISCA side with Max Dymond, Simon 'Frankie' Fraser, Jim Morley all having excellent games against skilful and hard working opponents.
Man of the Match was shared this week, with Ewan Dodson and Dom Lyons deservedly picking up the points as voted by the team.
Geoff Flowers got Donkey of the Day for forgetting his shoes and having to go home to ensure he could stay on his feet during the game!
