Two Clean Sheets And An Avalanche Of Goals.
22nd Nov 2012
On Saturday both County League teams kept a clean sheet which is good enough, but the 18 goals scored between them made it a special weekend.
At half time the First Team were just 1-0 up against Kimpton Rovers, and the match was evenly poised with both sides creating chances.
Even at 2-0 the crowd at The Bury could not have foreseen what would happeen within the next 30 minutes.
Louis Gilbert, who scored 12 last season but a disappointing 2 so far during this campaign, hit an amazing patch of form, netting six goals to make the final score 8-0 to Town.
On any weekend this result would be good enough, but the Reserves did even better, put 10 to no reply past Evergreen, with Rufus Pratt and Darren Webb each bagging a hat-trick.
Such a scoreline was unlikely to be the case on Sunday when the Vets faced their Bengeo counterparts, and it proved to be the case.
Trailing 3-1 at half time Town's old boys could not match their opponents, but a gritty second half performance kept the final score down to 4-1.
