Fleet Town 1 Moneyfields 4

Moneyfields started this game on the front foot, an early cross from Briggs brought the first save of the match from Beach, then a long ball through to Daniel Wooden set him up with a shooting chance but the ball flew wide. Fleet’s first chance came from a free kick played in for Greg Haydon, his header was saved by Mowthorpe. After a quarter of an hour, a Ben Toye chance was cleared, but Fleet were able to play the ball back into the box, Wilson ran in as Mowthorpe came out, Bradley got the first touch, with the keeper grabbing at his heels, Bradley took the ball out of his reach and slide it into the empty net, to put Fleet in front. Within Four minutes Moneyfields scored twice to take the lead, firstly from a corner, hit across to the far post, produced a shot that was saved, but the ball fell to Ryan Pennery to fire into the roof of the net from two yards, then Briggs ran down the right, he crossed the ball out to the left wing to Conor Bailey who fired home from thirty yards.

After this excitement a quieter spell followed until a 37th minute corner for Moneyfields, as played in right under the cross bar, Beach rose first and punched he ball away. Moneyfields soon threatened again, a free kick taken by Bailey, only found a Fleet head but they could not clear the danger as the ball found its way to Marley Ridge, his shot glanced off the outside of the post. Into the second half, a Moneyfields quick break, brought Beach out to try to intercept, but the visitors slid the ball past him, only to be denied by Chris Musgrove who got back to clear off the line. Moneyfields were given a free kick by the D, as the officials saw the ball striking the arm of a Fleet player as he fell over as handball. Brett Poate fired the ball through a crowded area straight into the net, for the visitors third. Fleet kept coming forward looking for the second goal to get them back in the match, Danilo Cadete continued to tease all his markers, with several good runs down the wing during the match, he played one cross which went right across the box, which came within inches of that elusive touch. Will Efambe played the ball in for Pekun, his effort ran wide. Efambe cut in from the left to shoot, but the ball ran wide of the far post. with time passing and Fleet still looking for a way back in left them stretched at the back, giving the visitors openings if they broke quickly, sub Billy Connor was unlucky to see his shot crash into the post with Beach beaten. Fleet came right back and Efambe saw his shot pushed away by Mowthorpe for a corner, but Moneyfields, well into the added minutes, went straight down the pitch and another of their subs, Paxton got number four.
