With availabilities the best they have been this season, as promised the gaffer made changes and with SK desperate to make amends for last weeks disappointing performance SK went at Hawbush from the off. Pace, movement and some slick, quality football created many chances for SK, but it took them until the 23rd minute before Chris Freeth opened the scoring after good work from skipper Tom Pencheon. Hawbush then equalised with a header from a corner, before SK turned up the gas! Their quick passing football and movement was too much for a young Hawbush side and Corinthians added a further 4 goals before half time, by now, the excellent Chris Freeth had completed a hat-trick and the goal of the first half was scored by the impressive Chris Howell, skillfully turning inside the fullback before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the net…………… 5-1 to SK half time.
The second half started much as the first had finished and Luke Ellor slotted home to make it 6-1. Then a triple substitution by the gaffer on the hour gave SK an injection of energy once again, as one of those subs, Dec Rigby, created havoc and dictated the midfield as well as scoring 2 very good goals, the goal of the game came in the 80th minute as Mick Finn latched on to a superb cross from Dec Rigby and placed a perfect header into the top corner from the corner of the 18 yard box…….Brilliant!! Hawbush then capitalised on a defensive error to make it 9-2 before the hard working Tommy Gregory added SK’s 10th goal.
Skipper Tom Pencheon was outstanding for Corinthians SK, although somehow he was not on the score sheet! He set up 5 of SK’s goals and created several other chances for himself and others throughout the game. On another day he would have scored at least 3 goals
So an impressive and pleasing display from SK.
Next week will see high flying Dudley Lions visit Moor Lane as SK look to build on this performance and continue their climb up the table.
