Match Report - 13 Oct 2012, Borden Village FC 1st XI beat Sevenoaks


Borden defeated previously unbeaten Sevenoaks on Saturday in an entertaining game played at the playstool. In the opening ten minutes the visitors brought the game to Borden but the home side looked organised when coping with danger. It was Borden who opened the scoring slightly against the run of play when the visitors failed to clear their lines and Tommy Price fastened on to a loose ball and buried into the bottom corner. The goal unsettled Sevenoaks and within ten minutes later the home side won a free kick just inside their opponents half Sam Brown delivered a fine ball deep into the far post where the unmarked Tommy Price headed powerfully home. The visitors tried to regroup and for the remainder of the half play was pretty even with neither side giving any quarter. Following the break Sevenoaks upped their game in search of a goal but Borden’s defence ably marshalled by Mark Green held firm. Mid way through the half Mark Roberts delivered a free kick into the box Lee Hudson headed the ball back across the six yard box and Price made no mistake to claim his hat trick The goal effectively killed off the visitors and with ten minutes remaining George Latham who was a constant threat all afternoon beat the offside trap ran through and coolly placed his shot wide of the keeper to give Borden a well deserved win over the league leaders Afterwards Borden’s manager Nick Brown said “the lads gave everything they had and are now bonding as a team a win like this has been long overdue and should provide the platform to kick on from here and hopefully climb the table”
