By Danny Caro, October 19, 2010

FC Team went into the top of the Middlesex County League Division One table after hammering title rivals St. Lawrence 5-1.

Missing midfielder Andy Croll, it took FC Team 15 minutes to get into their stride as Mitch Lassman set up Obinna who hit his shot against the frame of the post.

The game was end to end with St. Lawrence playing some good counter-attacking football, trying to switch play to their star No. 9 but Josh Morris at right back was dealing with him very well.

South had caused themselves problems losing the ball from a couple of their own set pieces but the back four stood firm.

The second half saw more attacking from both teams and only a fantastic defensive header from man of the match Darren Brewer kept South level.
