Cup Exits as Vets Shine.
11th Oct 2009
Both the Firsts and Reserves we eliminated from the Herts Senior County League's Aubrey and Reserve Cups yesterday afternoon.
Both sides faced their London Lions counterparts and both scorelines were the same; 7-0 to the opposition.
The First Team could have been 2-0 up well before Lions hit the back of the net after 15 minutes, but failed to take their chances.
Town went into the break 3-0 down, although yet again missed chances were the order of the day.
Lions scored a fourth early in the second period, but it was not until the final 15 minutes that they scored a further 3 goals against a tiring and demoralised home side.
The Reserves went in at half time down to a just one 40th minute goal, but crumbled during the second 45 minutes.
One bit of good news for the weekend was the performance of the Vets who beat Royston Town Vets 5-3.
Indeed it was a spirited fight back, having been 2-1 down at the interval against, as always, strong Royston opposition.
