Match Report

Horncastle men’s firsts travelled away to st Neots full of confidence of the back of a big first home win. Starting the game pressing high, horncastle restricted the home side to their own 23 and it didn’t take long for the first goal to come with Garcia finding Bennet with a through ball who calming took it past the keeper to slot in. Horncastle continued to pile on the pressure and the second came swiftly after with Seymour playing J.cullen down the line who hit a reverse cross to find Bennett who deflected in for his second. A scrappy third came from the captain Scott who was in the right place at the right time to see his shot deflected in off a defending foot. St Neots grabbed a last minute goal from a short corner to see the first half end 3-1. Changing formation at half time Horncastle soon grabbed their fourth, Harris finding Bennett who again calmly took it round the keeper to reverse flick for his hatrick. Five minutes later following a through ball from white, Bennet was round the keeper once again and in on an open goal. He selflessly slipped the ball to Read for his first goal of the season. Through a lack of concentration on defensive short corners st Neots saw themselves claw back two goals with ten minutes to play. Another solid performance was finished by Scott who was slipped the ball to slap home his second and end the match 6-3 seeing a hard working Horncastle victorious. Next week they hope to continue their away record when they travel to Peterborough. Man of the match: Jack Hood
