Saturday 5th December. Ashington Cougars 13 Black v Upper Beeding.
After a fairly even first 10 minutes the Cougars grew in confidence as the game progressed and started to apply pressure on Beeding’s goal, creating several half chances before Jamie Gallagher put the home side 1 – 0 up.
Some excellent last ditch defending from Oliver Rencontre , Jack Evans and Alex MacPherson kept Upper Beeding at bay until Thomas Fitzpatrick ran on to a perfectly weighted through ball from Oliver Rencontre to extend the lead with a customary clean hit shot, leaving the keeper with no chance.
Shortly after Jamie Gallagher scored his 2nd and the teams 3rd goal, bamboozling the Beeding defence with an excellent piece of individual skill.
Just before the half time break Harry Lech put the Cougars in control, showing a cool head in front of goal and extending the lead to 4 – 0.
The second half saw Beeding push forward trying to get themselves back into the game but the Cougars were solid and looked comfortable for the most part, a late consolation goal from Beeding meant the game ended 4 – 1 to the home side.
