13/10/2018 Kimberley Miners Welfare 4 – 6 Hucknall Warriors
After an even first half, Hucknall Warriors took control to send themselves top of the table on goal difference. Immediately Warriors started well, grabbing an early goal in the opening minutes. Kimberley Miners Welfare (KMW) responded impressively, getting an early goal of their own to leveling things at 1-1. Mid way through the first half, Joel and Jared score for Warriors to make it 3-1. KMW ensured however, that at half time the game was not out of their reach, nicking a goal right before the interval to make it 3-2 at the break.
Sloppy defending from Hucknall Warriors after the restart saw KMW score two quick goals, leaving Warriors 4-3 down 10 minutes into the 2nd half. This appeared to be a wake-up call for the lads, as they dominated from here on. They quickly had themselves an equaliser thanks to an outside the box effort from Reece. With the scores at 4-4 and the clock ticking, Warriors’ dominance of this period of the game began to show. They began to force mistakes out of the KMW defense and more goals looked a matter of “when” rather than “if”. A goal scored by Cory 5 minutes from time put Warriors in front, and then another from John sealed the points for Hucknall Warriors.
