Field day for Loddon scorers

A great goal-fest for Loddon in their 10-1 win over Gayton was helped in no short measure by the contribution of a tight defence, especially Way and Baylis.

A great goal-fest for Loddon in their 10-1 win over Gayton was helped in no short measure by the contribution of a tight defence, especially Way and Baylis.

The first 20 minutes of this encounter saw both teams evenly matched.

Loddon perhaps just edged it on chances created, with Ricky Summons crashing a left-foot volley onto the bar on three minutes and Dan Andersen finding the side netting on 12.

It took until the 23rd minute for Loddon to break the deadlock. Gary Summons stepped up to the penalty spot and sent the keeper the wrong way after a push on Hancock.

Two minutes later Battisson headed on for Wright, but his effort was cleared off the line. Hancock picked up the loose ball and Ricky Summons fired home for 2-0.

Way and Baylis dominated at the back and allowed Gayton very little space or time by getting to the ball first.
