Match Report - 07 May 2014, Borden Village FC 1st XI beat Guru Nanak
This long awaited fixture lived up to expectation with no quarter being given in the early stages. Straight from the kick off Borden Village attached strongly but the visitors defended well and began to test the Borden defence. In the opening ten mins play was from end to end with the home side looking more likely to score, but three minutes later they conceded a free kick. Guru Nanak delivered a deep cross into the box where one of their players found plenty of space to head home past a helpless Luke Titshall. Borden then found another gear and on the half hour the visitors failed to clear a corner and Paul Teague pounced on the loose ball to put his side back on level terms. Within 5 mins the home side took the lead and it was Teague again who planted the ball wide of the advancing keeper. The second period saw the home side find their form and before long Guru Nanak desperately defending being placed under intense pressure, once again Borden were guilty of wasting chance after chance, but with 15 mins remaining they were awarded a free kick. Up stepped Paul Teague to float in a superb ball which took a swerve, bounced, and deceived everyone including the Nanak keeper, spinning over the line to give Paul Teague a well deserved hat trick. There was now no doubt who was in the driving seat, and Borden should have added to their tally, but 4 games in 6 days were taking their toll, and all credit to them for securing all three points and spoiling the party for Guru Nanak who at this stage of the season hoping to complete their league programme undefeated.
