Fulbourn 1-3 Foxton
Foxton were back in action this week, away to Fulbourn.
Fulbourn have been struggling this season so far with only one point in the league, so Foxton were looking to capitalise on the opportunity for points. They made a pretty good start and could’ve taken the lead inside the first couple of minutes, but Gregg’s header from Liam’s corner went just wide.
Foxton then had a scare at the other end when a clever, early Fulbourn free kick, found their striker through with Louis to beat but he saved well at the feet of the striker.
Foxton then took the lead, when this time, Gregg’s header from a Liam cross beat the keeper and nestled nicely in the net. Justin nearly doubled the lead straight away after a good one two with Gregg, but the home keeper saved well.
Gregg was again in the action on 15 minutes, after a good move down the left. Justin teed him up at the far stick but his shot crashed against the cross bar.
Fulbourn then broke straight up the other end and equalised, when a cut back from the left found an onrushing player who slotted past Louis.
Foxton went back on the attack and a low rasping shot from Luca was again well saved by the home keeper. Fulbourn had a couple more shots themselves, which Louis saved however.
The last telling moment of the half saw Graver head over the bar from a Jacko corner.
The second got underway and it was Fulbourn who had the first opening, but again, Louis saved well.
Following this, the game became a bit scrappy as both side looking to gain control, and with neither side causing many problems for their opposing defenders.
On 70 minutes, Foxton took the lead when Ada’s corner found Eliot Keating. His shot took a slight deflection and crept in at the near post.
The goal took the wind out of the Fulbourn sails, and the score soon became 3-1, when Justin scored well from 20 yards, after he had picked up Jacko’s cross field ball.
Foxton were then able to see the game out, and nearly claimed a fourth just at the end, after a good move down the right and squared ball, which found Ada, but his first time shot could only hit the cross bar and fall safe.
