Home league match played on 04 May 2014.
Kicked off at 12:00 PM

The UNITS took on H&H in the second of the morning’s double headers. H&H mixed their side up for the 2nd game due to it being their last game of the season but they still had quality players on the pitch so it was important the UNITS did the job properly and got the points. We started with Tom, DJ, Ryan, Sean, Ben, Gilo, Baker, Azza, Jim, Lewis and Seeks. Subs were Greavesy, Trigger, Si, Chinner and Jay.

The 2nd game was always going to lack the intensity of the first but this really didn't play into our hands as we seemed to attack at will but couldn't open the scoring, one crazy goal mouth scramble on 10 minutes resulted in Lewis having a shot saved, then Seeks having the follow up cleared off the line, Baker then took a touch rather than shooting first time and his shot was also blocked on the line before DJ's follow up effort was touched onto the bar amazingly the ball stayed out. Lewis then beat his man in the box and beat the stand in keeper only for the ball to graze the post as we kept on coming but couldn't find the opening goal. Azza tested the keeper from two free kicks and both times the ball was palmed over the bar as we kept on creating.

Hare & Hounds had one chance from a free kick which went over to remind us they were still potentially dangerous. For all the good football we were playing our opening goal was very much route one, Cohen took a quick free kick and played a 60 yard ball forward for Pountney who beat the on-rushing keeper to head the ball over him and into the unguarded net. This settled the UNITS and our 2nd goal was another great team goal when good passing from midfield resulted in Seeks being slipped in and from the by-line he crossed to Lewis who ran onto the ball, took an audacious touch as he rolled the ball under his studs before finishing clinically into the bottom corner, typical Pountney, as we made it 2-0.

HT UNITS 2 v 0 Hare & Hounds 0

All Cuzer said to the boys at HT was to make sure we didn't let H&H back into the game in any capacity and we should be able to enjoy ourselves. An early 3rd goal made this a much more comfortable morning when Jim slipped a slide rule ball into Seeks who shot low and through the keeper’s legs to give us a 3-0 lead and get a goal his mornings work had more than deserved. With the game now won the UNITS had a bit of fun and shuffled things themselves, firstly Chinner replaced Lewis and DJ went up top with Seeks, the maverick full back then went on to miss 3 clear chances before being hauled off for Trigger as Seeks went to centre half and Ben Cohen had 20 minutes to try and open his account for the UNITS as he went up top.

It was the impressive Azza who scored next however when Jim again played a delightful ball to Azza who broke from midfield before clinically finishing into the bottom corner 4-0. Greavesy then replaced Azza going into midfield. It was now constant one way traffic as you would imagine as both sides enjoyed themselves with the results beyond doubt, Jim went clean through but shot wide when he deserved a goal for his efforts, Ben had two chances heading over from a cross and then finishing superbly with this right foot only to be denied by the linesman’s flag.

With 10 left Millette then went up top only to be harshly likened by his so called team mates to John Parkin for his burly leading of the line however he had the touch to set up Greavesy to score a superb curling goal from 20 yards as the UNITS kept on attacking. Millette then went close himself from a tight angle, Trigger beat his man and shot wide with Ben screaming for the pass as his UNITS goal drought continued............Ben's not Triggers! Our 6th and final goal was another great team goal when we kept the ball for 10-15 passes before Greavesy slipped in the over lapping Gilo who raced clear and finished superbly with his weaker right foot past the keeper from 15 yards out as the UNITS were superb to a man in picking up a huge and vital 6 points in our quest for the title.

Man of the match went to Sean Millette for his efforts really over both games when he marshalled the defence superbly to record two clean sheets as well as lively cameo up top bringing back memories of a young Paul Warhurst!

The UNITS now face Station on Friday night with a chance to wrap up the league title should we secure the win against a side that defend well and always make life difficult for the opposition.
