Match Report - 13 Dec 2014, Borden Village FC 1st XI beat Tudor Sports
Borden Village returned from South London with three valuable points in the bag after competing in a closely contested match against Tudor Sports.
It was the villagers who had the better of the opening stages pressing the opposition from high up the field and having the majority of possession. George Latham looked certain to open the scoring after intercepting a poor back pass but having rounded the keeper but from a difficult angle his shot went inches wide. With Sam Brown Liam Baxindale and Jack Goodger controlling the midfield they created a number of half chances but could not find a way through a resolute defence. Following the break the home side stepped up a gear and it was Borden’s turn to be on the back foot but the defence ably marshalled by Ben Taylor held firm With 20 mins remaining Borden took the lead and it was substitute Martin Kemsley who broke the deadlock when from outside the box he fastened on to a loose ball spotted the keeper off his line and fired in to the top corner. The final stages of the match saw the home side desperately searching for an equaliser but Borden were determined not to let it slip this time and when forced to concede a number of corners keeper Charlie Donohue proved to be on top of his game demonstrating his safe handling when taking the ball under pressure. With six points gained from their last two league games Borden climb another two places up the table and away from the relegation zone.
