This game was expected to be harder than that of the previous week. The lads started off looking really very sharp, with crisp passing and movement cutting into and penetrating the opposition defensive lines. As Ryan was not available Shane was elevated to partner Ali up front and he produced the goods finishing off a good movement by Jared, Campbell and Harry to put us one up. It must be said that the 'Kings' goalkeeper was very good and kept the score respectable denying first Harry, then Ali (twice), Shane and Elliot before Shane hit a rather speculative ball goal-wards which he spilled into goal at the high far post. To Shane's credit the ball had been imparted with an extraordinary amount of spin which made saving it hard work.

The first half finished with our boys totally dominating the opposition. The second half turned out to be very different and was a dour battle, with Three Kings getting very physical and pushing up to press us at every opportunity. As the game wore on the home side scored with about 10 minutes left and the boys had to knuckle down and fight for the points. Again showing discipline despite an indifferent performance from the official we held out to secure our second win out of three.
