Victory for the new boys.
29th Aug 2010
County League newbies Goffs Oak saw off Buntingford yesterday, beating them 5-1 at The Bury in a fast-paced and sometimes fractious encounter.
Well organised and quick to the ball, the opposition were a severe test to Buntingford's new-look line-up, but to give the lads credit the 1-1 scoreline at half time was probably desreved.
Town went 2-1 down after the interval; the turning point of the match came when, following a period of exceptionally good play during which time Wes Pullen hit the bar and Marck Stobart also had a goal disallowed, Goffs Oak broke and were awarded a penalty when 'keeper nathan Searle felled a striker through on goal.
Goffs scored from the spot, Town were reduced to 10 men, and that was that.
A wake-up call for Buntingford and a feeling that Goffs Oak won't be in Division One for any more than one season!
We have another tough match on Tuesday at second-placed Knebworth; kick-off is at 6:15pm.
