Sticker Reserves 1 St Stephen 4
Sticker Reserves hoping to consolidate their top of the league position today met their match with a very experienced and organised St Stephen side. The game started at a very brisk pace with both sides making quick breaks from long balls and Sticker were the first to capitalise with new signing Rory Jarvis racing past the St Stephen defence to slot the ball past the keper. 1-0. Sticker now had a good spell of possession and should have scored two more goals after good work on the right flank but both chances spurned. St Stephen came roaring back and two Sticker defensive errors gave the away side a two goal lead. 1-2. To Make matters worse another slip up gave St Stephen another goal before half time to make it 1-3. H/T.
Sticker came out for the second half determined to try and get something from the game but although they had most of the possession could not find a way through the massed experienced St Stephen defence in fact the away sides keeper hardly had a save to make such was the reluctance of the Sticker players to shoot when they had the chance. In probalbly their only real proper attack with four players going forward St Stephen added a fourth and final nail into the Sticker coffin. F/T. 1-4. St Stephen leapfrog over Sticker to take the top spot in the league!
