Despite missing some key players and a recent defeat Cougars didn’t look deterred and started well looking the stronger team in the opening salvo. The pressure led to an early break through when Ned Sigston ran onto a through ball from Jamie Gallagher and forced the Dorkinians defence into an error leaving him clear on goal and finishing well to put his team ahead.
Dorkinians reacted well and but for some solid goalkeeping from Connor Lord could have easily got themselves back into the game. However it was the Cougars who extended their lead when Ned Sigston turned provider as Jamie Gallagher ran from deep to finish with his usual efficiency.
With ten minutes remaining an inspired performance from Matt Duncan was topped off with a perfectly weighted pass to Jamie Gallagher who scored his second goal of the match to put the game beyond Dorkinians.
The last 5 minutes saw Dorkinians throw everyone forward in an attempt to get a consolation goal but Connor Lord seemed determined to keep a clean sheet - making an excellent save when pushing the ball wide of the post with the last attack of the game
