Round Up: Saturday 26th September: Goal-Fest At The Dale

The day started with the Men's 8th team racing to a three-nil half time lead against Rotherham 4s. Rotherham hit back, and although they never took the lead, pushed our lads hard. In a ding-dong encounter a total of fourteen goals were scored with SHC winning 8-6.

Next up the Men's 3rd team, the current Yorkshire League champions, took on top of the table Halifax. They were swiftly despatched 5-2 although there were some hairy moments with the scores locked at 1-1 for quite a while. 

Mark Mobbs scores for the men's thirds.

The men's 5th team were on the wrong end of a 3-2 score line. They took the lead through Dan Salthouse before conceding a PC. James Subden restored the lead with fifteen minutes remaining which unfortunately just long enough for Adel to knock in two goals and grab all three points.

James Subden scored the M5's second goal.

Then the ladies took over. The 2nd team, who finished bottom of North SW2 last season, put all that disappointment behind them and convincingly saw off Harrogate 2s. They scored four unanswered goals securing all three points, as many points as they collected all last season!

The women's 3s finished off the entertainment with a 7-1 thrashing of near neighbours, Rotherham. They were 1-0 down but went through the gears to finish the job off in style.

So just the 38 league goals at Abbeydale. Is this a record?

Meanwhile, around Yorkshire and beyond even more goals. The Ladies first team lost by the odd goal in seven, going down to Bowdon 3-4. In the day's evening match, the men's first team lost 7-1 to the impressive Loughborough Students. The Men's 2 played in the lowest scoring game of the day, losing 2-1 at Neston, the Men's 7th team secured their second victory with a 5-2 win away at Slazengers and the Men's 4th team were involved in a ten goal game at Adel. Unfortunately, nine of them were scored by the home side.

So just the 73 goals to report on this week.

Oh and the Men's first team went out of the cup on flicks having drawn 2-2 with Didsbury. That’s 77 goals.
