Match Report

After a sloppy start last week, we put it right this week going ahead quite early thanks to Gary Adams smashing the ball home after a good save from the keeper. Hornchurch had chances to equalise but couldn't take them, Scott Meyers then played a great ball out from the back to catch Hornchurch defence cold and thanks to a confident Gary Shea run, he finished the move off calmly making it 2-0 and we went into the break with a comfortable lead. Both sides had chances early in the second half but after a great run from Ricardo into their box, he was taken down and we were awarded a penalty. Ricardo dusted himself down and slotted the penalty home for the referee to say that it had to be retaken, he confidently went the same way, making it 3-0. The confidence was showing from the boys and we made it 4-0 after a lovely ball from Josh which put George Martin in front of goal and he finished off a great move with a delicate finish off the post. Mike was unlucky not to get his first clean sheet of the season as he was beaten by his own man Zak with an own goal after he tried to clear the ball and inevertantly put it past Mike to make it 4-1. Hornchurch then created some more chances but couldn't find the net. The result was wrapped up with a lovely finish from Matt who added a 5th after another great ball from Josh making it 5-1 and finishing off the scoring for the day and giving Dagenham their first win of the season.
