3rd XI vs Burnt Ash (Home) | 12 Oct 19

Won 7-2

Scorers: Matt Lea x3 Matt Hammond x 2 Rich Sabin x 1 Max Messenger x 1 Shane Godwin x 1


Canterbury 3s were hoping for a similar goal fest from last week but a tighter defence so not so many conceded when they welcomed Burnt Ash at Polo.
Canterbury dominated the earlier exchanges and Matt Lea opened the scoring with straight flick from a PC. There were a number of further chances but the score remained 1-0 at half time.
Canterbury came out in the 2nd half confident their dominance which meant Burnt Ash were “parking the bus” and hoping for a break away would pay dividends and eventually it did Matt Hammond this time converting from a PC.
The flood gates then opened as Matt Lea added another couple, Matt Hammond, Max Messenger and Rich Sabin all added to the tally. Burnt Ash did nick a couple back from a PC and a break away but Canterbury secured the 7-2 score line when Shane Godwin scored with and Ozzy versini of the Irish from a PC towards the end of the game and there it stayed, 3pts and early pace setting at the top of the league.
