Havering Mens 3s 5 Thurrock Mens 2s 0

Mens 3s started the game with a high tempo, with the central midfield duo of Richard Cast and Mike Gilbert dictating the pace. Havering took the lead when Barry Marler spread the ball wide to Amar Mangat, whose run to the by line and subsequent cross, found Barry Marler again, to slot home from close range.
A second goal soon followed, when a clearance from defence, found Richard Cast all alone in the midfield, and like the parting of the Red Sea, the Thurrock defence let him walk into the D and unleash a shot into the back of the net.
Havering continued to press, with good runs and skill from Bill Birbeck and Amar Mangat and a third goal came, when Barry Marler flicked the ball into the net. Just before the break, Matthew Kennedy pounced onto a loose ball, to make it 4-0 at half time.
In the second period, although Thurrock created and had short corner opportunities of their own; through good defensive discipline and fine goalkeeping from Graham Walker, they could not reduce the deficit. Indeed, it was Havering who scored from a short corner, when Richard Cast fired a shot just inside the upright, to score his second of the game.
Havering had several chances to increase their lead, with both Marler and Cast having opportunities to complete their hat tricks, but the score line remained 5-0, for a comfortable Havering victory.
