The 1st XI made hard work securing a 5 -3 win at Wanderers FC after storming into an early 3 goal lead.
Our thanks to Mappy for noting the goal timings below,
1-0 – An Own Goal after Billy Liffen pressured the Home Defenders on 17mins
2-0 – An Ashley Daly free kick was only parried by their Keeper. Elliott Gibbs reacted first to the rebound on 19mins
3-0 – Alex Blenkinsop firmly side footed home a delightful Adam Randall cross following neat play on 24 mins
3-1 – Wanderers reduced the arrears with a powerful header from a Corner on 25mins
3-2 – Wanderers converted a penalty on 42mins.
4-2 – Fabio Bagulho slotted home after an Ashley Daly free kick was fumbled on 49mins
4-3 – Wanderers score their 3rd goal on 82mins
5-3 – Blenkinsop fired home for his brace and MOTM award from a Sam Leatherby assist on 86mins.
The 2nd XI played really well to earn a hard fought a 3 – 1 Surrey Cup Win against Reigate Priory Res FC
The Ruts went ahead courtesy of an OG, before the Visitors levelled. However, two terrific second half goals booked the OR’s slot in the next round.
Firstly, Sam Maclean deftly fired home a delightful strike, and this was followed by a Paul Whitthread goal, as he powerfully headed in a Jake Searles cross. Dave Eyles was the OR’s MOTM.
The 3rd XI apparently went 1 nil up via a goal from debutant Alex Hammond, who was also their MOTM. However, the limited news we have so far is that a massive second half collapse ended in a 7 or 8 – 1 defeat.
The 4th XI drew 3 – 3 with Wanderers Res FC. A brace from Abdel Hafidi and a Hamid Bensalim goal. MOTM tbc.
Our Walking Football Team suffered a 5 – 1 defeat against a very strong Pimlico side, Kevin Wilde scored the Ruts goal and our super agile Keeper John Walker was the OR’s MOTM, after he pulled off a succession of outstanding saves.
Best Wishes to the Ruts Sunday XI and Ruts Youth teams tomorrow.
