Felix Styles reports on a comfortable home league victory...
The Blues beat Peterborough 2nds 6-0 on Saturday. At half-time the score was still 0-0 with Cambridge dominating possession but unable to make a breakthrough. However, three minutes into the second half, Sachin Jivanji finally broke the deadlock by firing home from a McLean cross. The Light Blues hit their stride as the second half wore on, hitting the woodwork 3 times - including a missed penalty by Harrison.
Eventually the Blues' superior fitness level wore down the opposition, and a final 15-minute blitz saw Cambridge score 5 more goals to bring the final score to 6-0. Will Harrison converted a second penalty, followed by an opportunistic effort from Sam Bowker. Captain Felix Styles made it four from a short corner, before Will Harrison completed his brace and fresher Wes Howell scored the 6th in the dying seconds of the game.
Coach Chris Marriott was satisfied with this comprehensive thrashing of a direct competitor in the East Premier A. "All our hard work over the winter break and in pre-season is beginning to pay off. The boys showed a lot of patience in possession and were relentless during the last part of the game. A great start to our 2013 campaign but nobody's getting carried away here, we have a long way to go."
