Furnace Green Rovers vs Keymer & Hassocks
Div 2

K & H notched their 2nd win of the season with a 5-1 win over Furnace Green Rovers

Despite the score it was Furnace Green who had the better of the first half as they asked questions of the back four with some runs from deep on both sides of the pitch.K & H were somewhat hampered as Eddie Emmens had omitted to go to bed the previous night and was gliding around in zombie like fashion seeming unsure of where he was which effectively meant they were playing with 10 ½ men

In the event it was K & H who took the lead after some good work by Gary Thomas saw the ball fall to Toby Raftery just inside the area and he fired home first time.Rovers got back in it when slimmed down captain Ben Watson,playing his first full game for over a year, was adjudged to have handled the ball despite his arms being by his sides.Rovers duly converted with a well taken penalty.They went on to finish the first half strongly as K & H were clearly knocked back by what they considered an unfair decision

They used half time to focus on channelling their resentment and this paid off as they were much tighter from the restart with passes that would have gone astray in the first half now finding the target.Gegor Ross scored the second with a near post header from a Raftery corner.Raftery was again involved when he put Stuart Thompson through for a one on one with the keeper which he coolly finished.Dan Miles came on for Emmens and made a quick impact with a surging run into the box which saw his shot find its way into the net following a ricochet.K & H were convinced they had scored again when the ball appeared to be over the line after Matt Thomas got a touch to a corner but the Ref was uncertain so it was not given.In the event Gregor Ross made up for it shortly after with a firm strike from outside the box

Rovers kept battling throughout but the K & H defence with Fin Fogarty outstanding managed to contain them although keeper Craig Jackson was forced into a fine save near the end
