Poor Start

Maidstone began their league campaign very poorly.  In blistering heat the home side failed to settle and Sevenoaks were able to capitalize on the disorganization in their opposition to take a 5 goal advantage to the second half.  Some restructuring at half time saw Maidstone manage to get a foothold in the game early in the second half.  Centre Forward Matt Evans received a the ball  on the edge of the area, he drew the advancing keeper before deftly flicking the ball to his right with a disguised reverse stick, the advancing Jack Slattery was able to coolly slot the ball into the open goal.  The possibility of a monumental fight back was short lived and soon Sevenoaks regained control and were able to double their first half total, Maidstone added a second on the final whistle with a well struck short corner strike from Richard Chilcott but it was too little too late and Maidstone were left to lick their wounds in preparation for the next fixture.
