Goalscorers: Will F x 2, Will Earl, Ollie Earl, S Aldous, Ed Willan, Raphael F
The road to glory is never easy for the famous M6s and the saga continued, amidst a hailstorm, a pothole riddled journey to the middle of nowhere and a much more youthful opponent in the guise of March 2s. After a nervy start Raphael's excellent flick finish gave City an early lead but minutes later a mix-up in defence allowed the hosts a soft equaliser. March were buoyed by this and with their energetic approach play caused the not so young City defence some worrying moments. However, City had five players under 15 this week and it was Will F who completed a clever reverse stick finish to restore City's lead. At half time with a slender 2 1 lead the game was very much in the balance, unlike the rain which was very much on the heavy side.
City started the second half brightly. Using the good possession wisely, moving the ball back and round creating numerous chances. Despite some poor finishing and a March keeper who was on his A game, City still managed to score five goals in the second half. An Ed Willan flick crept through the unsighted keeper and a minute later a certain S Aldous deflected a penalty corner into the goal. March became deflated and hardly got into the City half who added further goals including one each from the Earls (one of three father and son combinations) and another neat finish from Will F much to the delight of his mother cheering on from the touchline. The 7 -1 final score may possibly be a bit harsh on March, but the M6s are playing some of their best hockey of the season. even the home supporters were complimentary of City's style.
Two games to go and can Bill Davidson get on the scoresheet for the second time this season? Rumour says he hit a post on Saturday. There were no green cards this week which was a bonus. Next Saturday we welcome St Neots for our final home match of the season; might be a game to watch.
