Melbourn Dynamo Leopards U-10 10 Buntingford Cougars 2 HALF-TIME substitute Sam Crago blasted five goals to help Melbourn to their biggest win of the season - and their fifth in a row. Buntingford started strongly and soon brought the Leopards keeper Joe Williams into action. However, Melbourn took the lead with a fine run and shot by Tommy Froggatt. Cougars were soon back on level terms and were frequently getting behind the Melbourn defence. Melbourn, though, started to get their passing game going and a strong shot by Matt Davis and a second goal for Froggatt gave them a two-goal cushion - only for the Cougars to deservedly pull one back just before half-time. It was difficult to forecast the outcome of the game at this point but, with the half-time substitution, Melbourn were extremely strong in the second half. Froggatt completed a well-taken hat-trick straight from the kick-off. Then Sam Crago scored his first from close range and his second with a fine low drive after rounding a defender. The seventh goal was the pick of the bunch as Ben Catley let fly a superb long-range effort. Crago added three more late goals as Buntingford tired.
