Saints Win at Home

March 2nd, 2019

The Saints beat visiting Waterloo Rovers FC 6-2 to get back to winning ways.

A Jack Biggs double early in the first half saw us go 2-0 up,  the first a penalty after Greg Preece was tripped in the area.

Waterloo fought back and went in at the break 2-2 and were unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty themselves.

A strong second half performance saw four unanswered goals. Jack Evans put us 3-2 up after Preece’s effort hit the underside of the bar.

Adi Lawford finished well to make it 4-2, Evans sent striker Matty Tong through on goal and the youngster finished with slow shot for 5-2.

Tong was then pulled back in the area and the referee pointed to the spot again, Biggs making no mistake with his hat-trick goal for 6-2.

The visitors were awarded a penalty in the 85th minute after Biggs had fouled, however, Tom Bevan cane to the rescue with a good save.

Full Time 6-2

A much better performance to get us back to winning ways.

Many thanks to PCI for sponsoring the game, a representative from the company chose Greg Preece as Man of the match.
