M6s vs Sevenoaks – 7th Dec 13

Old Bordenian 4 – 2 Sevenoaks 

The Old Bordenian 6th team returned to winning ways with a performance at times reminiscent of some of their swash buckling performances of last year. They surprised Sevenoaks by taking the game to them from the start and, with precise passing and good movement, they started to open up the home defence. The OBs were rewarded when, after breaking from midfield, Geoff Lamb found Kev Cracknell, whose delicate touch was enough to find Dave Meaning ghosting in at the back post to score from close range. They should have had a second goal when they were awarded a penalty flick, following a goal line foot stop, but Lamb’s effort, was not his finest, as the ball dribbled towards the ‘keeper


They did eventually score a second, when after a lightening sweeping movement that cut through the home defence, Cracknell was again the provider for a Paul Clunn “slider”special


As expected, Sevenoaks started the second half strongly, but with ‘keeper Ford resolute in defending his goal, the OBs survived a period of pressure, before Terry Bollard added a third goal off an incisive Meaning pass. The home side pulled a goal back after a period of dominance, but with the entire defence of Ash Rehal, Sam O’Brien and Jamie Henley pushing the team forward and Paul Smith pulling the strings and the relentless James Steers driving the midfield of Stirling Campbell, Meaning and Lamb goalwards. It was no surprise when the OBs added a fourth, albeit a slightly fortuitous goal, when Meaning’s goalbound strike was helped over the line by the home ‘keeper. Although Sevenoaks did get a further consolation strike, at that stage the game was safe.
