Liberals in full control

GAINSBOROUGH SUNDAY PREMIER LEAGUE

Elkesley 1

Real Liberal 3

REAL controlled this game from the start, going on to pick up three points.

Elkesley could have gone ahead through a penalty, but Beeby fired it over the bar.

Real won a penalty of their own when Crawford was knocked down in the area, C. Mettam finding the top corner.

Real were now dominating and from a corner Larocca powered an unstoppable header into the net.

However, they missed three or four chances to put the game to bed and after a misplaced pass Elkesley made it 2-1.

But Joe Owen picked the ball up on the halfway line on the right wing and after beating five men played the ball to P. Mettam who used great strength to hold the ball before squaring to Shepherd to score and put the game safe.

Man of the Match was Joe Owen.
