Week Eighteen Match Summaries

Men's Ones

A 3-0 win puts them just a point away from promotion. Goals came from Dan Lang and Will Prime.

Men's Twos:

Men's 2s welcomed table-topping Crawley to Beacon. Despite being ravaged by absences and injuries Borough made a lot of early running, with debutants Sam Alker and Ollie Sanday impressing in particular. The game became an end to end, but neither team was able to break the deadlock, leaving the score 0-0 at half time. Borough took the lead early in the second half thanks to a sweetly struck short corner by Sam Chick that deflected off a defender's stick leaving the keeper helpless. The Crows doubled their lead within a few minutes later, when Alker drove down the left wing, cut inside and unleashed a powerful shot, which rebounded off the post, but Charlie Phelan was on hand to finish with aplomb. Crawley fought back, but they could not find a way around the brick wall that was Harry Hook, who put in a player of the match performance at centre back. The game finished 2-0.

Men's Threes:

Men's 3s hosted Brighton 8's with a midday pushback. Brighton were quick off the mark and Crows had to defend many short corners. Crowborough worked hard and there were many chances but ultimately we were unable to convert these into goals. The score at half time was 0-3 but Borough continued to keep on battling on but Brighton's defenders were too sharp. Boro's GK Nick Sparks played with skill and enthusiasm to defend the goal but the final score was 0-4 defeat. Player of the match was Torin Bosse for his hard work and impressive passing.
