A drizzly day, a heavy, boggy pitch, and another three important points for the Sun in their quest to achieve promotion on Saturday afternoon.
Sun had the perfect start when, a minute into the match, a free kick was awarded to Sports and up stepped the confident George Hobson who floated the ball beautifully into the net leaving the Bengeo keeper flat footed and the Sun faithfull rubbing hands in glee at the thought of another goal-fest.
Sun kept the pressure on and soon, youngster Youssef Enajar pounced on a terrible clearance but his shot lacked power enough to beat the Bengeo keeper.
Sun’s custodian Luke Furlong was hardly need in the first half with the exception of a couple of roll back which he dived, probably just to help keep himself warm!
Halfway through the half and a George Hobson free kick was pumped hard and high towards the back post, finding Paolo Deritis, who headed the ball back from the by-line where Tom Herbert smashed the ball into the Bengeo goal from around eight yards.
Josh Towle was making a nuisance of himself up front and although he never made the score sheet he certainly gave the Bengeo full backs problems, while at the back the partnership of Gary Wallace and Joe Horwood gives the Sun defence a lot of security, height and experience from their days in the Spartan South Mids Premier League.
Moving forward with the ball, Wallace passed it to Hobson, who cheekily back heeled the ball to Enajar who found time and space to fire a wicked shot which whizzed just over the bar and as time edged closer to the break, Josh Connolly picked up the ball in his own half and dribbled through the Bengeo defence before lashing a shot which rattled off the crossbar.
Ten minutes into the second half and Josh Connolly again found room to manoeuvre around the Bengeo backs and curled in a cracker of a goal to put the result to bed.
George Hobson is another of those players who has played at a much higher level of football, and it showed when another cheeky flick sent Tom Herbert on his way into the area and he pushed the ball into the path of Josh Towle who was unlucky not to get a shot off when a Trinity player just beat him to the punch.
From the corner Herbert had his header headed off the line and when the ball was pumped back in it was Josh Connolly who had his headed attempt hacked off the line.
Bengeo Trinity were feeling the pressure as the Sun mounted more and more onto them and Hobson had a shot clip the crossbar after another flurry of long range efforts were denied by the tiring Bengeo defence.
Bengeo’s best effort came midway through the half when a long shot was connected well but bounced down and away after hitting the crossbar.
On came new signing Jack Robertson for the final ten minutes, who previously played for Colney Heath last season, and he was soon making a name for himself when he took one touch from a Hobson pass and hit a low shot beating the keeper to make it a goal on his debut for the Sun’s silver fox!
So another three points for the Sun, but they still stay in fourth place with games in hand over the teams above them, including league leaders Bovingdon Reserves, who they play at home in the most important match of the season next Saturday.
