Mens 1s hit 7 again, in tough day for Watton

The men's first team ran out comfortable winners against sudbury, scoring 7 for the second week in a row.

The game started in cagey fashion with both teams trying to find the breakthrough, but it was Watton who struck first. Sean Billington found space and was on hand to deflect a shot in for his first of the day. Watton extended the lead with Caine Lloyd using all his samba skills to find space and flick the ball past the keeper. ...Sadly Caine pulled something in his leg shortly after and Watton missed his silky midfield skill, but still managed to extend the lead to 5-0 at half time. Sean Billington mis hit from 3 yards out to scuff it past the keeper, Daniel Rix got in on the act with a great solo run and reverse stick finish and then won a penalty flick which Sean tucked away for his hat-trick.

The second half became a bit of a scrappy affair with Watton losing a little discipline in their hunt for more goals. Mike farrow stepped up from centre back and played as makeshift centre mid for the injured Caine Lloyd, he managed to lay on further goals for Sean Billington, after finding him in space at the back post, and a lovely one two setting Henry Garner free to finish with style for his 5th goal in the last 5 games. Sudbury got a consolation goal at the end with their rapid winger making a great run across the D and somehow finding space to tuck the ball home on the reverse. Final score 7-1

The Mens 2s had a more difficult day as they lost 5-1 away to top of the league Norfolk Nomads 2s. Dan Pointer scored the consolation goal for the Men but the 2s included 5 back to hockey players in it who all learned from their experiences against league leaders.

The Ladies teams all lost today as the 1s lost 2-0 away to UEA, the 2s lost 3-0 at home to 2nd in the league Broadland 2s. Meanwhile the ladies lost there home match against local rivals Breckland 3-0.

Onwards and upwards!
