Gore Court 6
|Date||Saturday 8th October|
|Scorers||Phil Davidson (2), Duncan Beer (2)|
Maidstone Mens 6s put in another comprehensive performance to beat Gore Court 4-0 in Kent Division 4. Man of the Match Phil Davidson opened the scoring with a mazy run from in his own half, playing a deft 1-2 with Jim Mendoza before burying the ball in the back of the net. The second was scored by debutant Duncan Beer, following quick passing inside the D between Davidson and Mendoza, who put the ball across for Beer to slot away.
Maidstone kept their lead thanks to some impressive defensive work by the back line of Martin, Linstead, Jones, J Dann and Park, and some impressive keeping by Ryan Dann to keep the match at 2-0 at half time.
The second half began as the first, with Gore Court threatening in the middle of the park but with little penetration. As their efforts continued to be thwarted by the defence and keeper, Davidson again broke out from his own half, dinking round the keeper and coolly sliding the ball over the line for his second. Gore Court heads dropped and Maidstone pressed for another, with more intricate passing in the D resulting in Beer slotting away for his second to make it 4-0
Maidstone now sit top of Div 4, with local rivals Holcombe visiting next week
