Match Report

Horncastle travelled away to leadenham looking to continue the strong start to the season and extend their lead at the top of the table. From push back leadenham looked to start strong, driving straight into the horncastle half trying to catch them unawares. For all their efforts, horncastle prevailed and immediately looked to hit back. Eventually, Horncastle proved too good and after ten minutes Bennett scored his first with a reverse shot that deflected in of the far post. Through a number of Leadenham errors Bennett was gifted opportunity to score a further 2 goals to make the score 3-0. Leadenham got a rare opportunity not long after on the break with a player glancing a shot past the horncastle keeper. An on form Bennett pounced on another opportunity just before half time to end the first half 4-1 in horncastle’s a favour. Horncastle came back strong after the break, dominating much of the second half. However there was only one goal to come for the rest of the match, Read squaring a deflected ball across to the captain Scott who neatly slotted it in. Horncastle now look to next week with another top of the table clash when they host Cambridge city 4’s.
