Leighton complete second win of the season
Better finishing the difference against determined Windsor side
Leighton Buzzard 3s 3 - 0 Windsor 3s
The 3s enjoyed their best performance and best result of the season so far, against a determined Windsor team.
Leighton took an early lead: Alex Hewett cut into the D from the right hand side and played the ball to Peter Gale, Gale's lifted pass to the far post was calmly controlled by debutant Finley Bell-Taylor, who lifted the ball over the keeper to open the scoring. Back came Windsor and they found the net with a skilful deflection but fortunately for the home side the initial cross was fired in at a dangerous height and the goal was disallowed.
With Leighton's keeper Jim Galloway in dominant form and player of the match Grant McWalter defending expertly, Leighton grew in confidence. General play was even but Leighton were better at converting their chances. With half-time approaching a sweeping passing move saw Bell-Taylor fire home for his and Buzzard's second.
Both sides fought hard in the second half, with Leighton skipper Marc Scott at his resolute best. With five minutes remaining Leighton won a short corner. Bell-Taylor controlled Stuart Hart's injection and drove the ball around the top of the D. Sensing an opportunity to strike he fired the ball to the back post for the on rushing Hewett to guide the ball past the keeper and into the goal. A great way for the 3s to seal their second win of the season !
Final score 3 - 0
