Posted on October 9, 2006
Saints tame the Lions!
Watling Saints - 4; Eaton Bray Lions - 2
The South Beds Saturday League has produced some cracking matches this season and this one would be right up there with the best of them.
Table toppers Eaton Bray Lions came into this game in great goalscoring form, having bagged eleven last week and with the Saints still licking their wounds after being de-railed in last weeks shock loss to luton-on-track, both teams had a lot to prove.
Saints captain, Chas Tickle playing against his former side chose to kick into the sun and in superb conditions for football of the highest standard it was Lion's who drew first blood when Nathan sears poked the ball home, before the saints had even woken up.
Saints gradually got their game together and for all their efforts were awarded a penalty after twenty minutes ,which James Green cooly slotted home, Kyle Davison's first goal of the season and a Darrell Millers trade-mark goal quickly followed up Greeny's penalty to make it 3-1 to the saints at half-time.
The second half started with both teams producing end to end exciting football ,Saints two goal lead never really looked safe during the second half and when lions Jake Higgs scored with five minutes left, the pressure was on the saints defence not to concede another. But it was left to Saints Aaron Maher, scoring the goal of the game, that sealed the points for the home side, when he majestically lobbed the keeper from outside the box, after spotting him off his line to make it 4-2.
Ryan Shilleto was awarded Saints man of the match for his fine display in defence. Saints are away this coming Saturday when they visit Memorial Park B.
