Man of the Match Harry Hornigold

First team win at home

Locking Park extended their unbeaten run in the league to 7 games with a comfortable home win against Uphill Castle Reserves.

The game started well for the home side when a Chris Green pass was flicked on by Ryan Harris to Aidan Dancer who tapped passed the keeper on 14. Uphill responded quickly though and it was 1-1 two minutes later. Park made it 2-1 after Harris powered through the opposition defence and smashed a left footed shot passed the oncoming keeper. Although Uphill once again equalised, this time through a penalty given away after Mike Green handled on the line.

The first half had a crazy finish with 3 goals in 5 minutes. The first for Locking Park, Harry Hornigold finishing from another Chris Green through ball. Uphill were next to score to again level the game only for Park to have a penalty awarded, Hornigold bought down in the area. Chris Green stepped up and calmly sent the keeper the wrong way to finish the half 4-3 to Locking Park.

In the second half Locking stopped making the mistakes that lead to conceding goals in the first half and began to dominate the game. The outstanding Ryan Harris got another three goals, the first an effort from outside the box, the second a diving header and the last a lob after the ball fell to him from a Dan Windsor cross.

CES Man of the Match went to captain Harry Hornigold.
