November 11, 2008

London Lions 4 Standon & Puckeridge 2

London Lions turned on the style once again as they beat 4th placed Standon & Puckeridge 4-2 at Rowley Lane.

When the Lions are good they are very good and if they can just fine tune their possession and passing of the ball to a far more consistent level then they could be exceptional.

The first 25 minutes was a little disjointed as both teams looked to get a foot hold on the game. It was the visitors that drew first blood with an Adam Myeroff own goal giving them the lead.
