Dagenham United Res vs Loughton Lions

Dagenham United coasted home to a 6-1 win In saturdays game as they hosted the new faces to the league, Loughton Lions. 

Dagenham were superb from the get go and quickly found themselves ahead on the Scoreline and in complete control of the game. 

For the second week running, some beautiful passing football on show as Loughton we’re carved open on a number of occasions. 

Early first half goals for Luke Harrold and Jeff Nketia took us into the half time break with the score at 3-1. 

Second half saw Dagenham pick up exactly where they left off and produce some more fantastic defence splitting play, building up from the back once again with every member of the team contributing to the attacking play. 

The Loughton Lions keeper made a few decent saves from a couple of Chris Mascall headers from corners who was so unlucky not to get on the scoresheet himself, but had no chance denying Niven Nkansah’s absolute rocket as he turned and struck the ball into the top bins from the edge of the area. 

Loughton fought back and had a couple of chances, with the keeper tipping one onto the bar and superly denying the Lions striker from close range. 

3 more goals followed from Dagenham as Niven Nkansah, Jeff Nketia and Luke Harrold all got on the scoresheet with braces each. 

All in all a superb team performance, a bucket full of goals and 3 points which pushes the side up to 3rd in the table. 

Very happy and a real statement of intent.
