Under-13s Division Three

FAIRLANDS Whites looked to continue their good league form with an away game to Baldock Knights Templar.

With two players being unavailable for the game due to illness and an injury just three minutes into the game to another, the team were stretched in terms of personnel but fought well for a deserved win.

The first half began with the Whites dominating but the playing areas were tight and they only managed a few half chances.

Cam Mills, the Whites' stand-in 'keeper, had little to do in the first half as the back line of Danny Christ, Daniel Paulus, man-of-the-match Freddy Kelly and Jonathan Griffiths kept things tight.

At the other end Taylor Bennett and Daniel Keegan both had chances that went begging and the teams went into half time with the score level at 0-0.

In fact the first goal of the game came with just 15 minutes of the match remaining when Bennett's cross was fumbled by the home 'keeper and Daniel Keegan tapped into the open net, and the next goal soon followed when Lew Hawes slotted the ball through to Keegan who fired in at the near post.

The third and final goal came as Bennett fought his way past two defenders and put a well placed shot to the left of the 'keeper to put the game to bed.

The game was an exciting one for both sets of fans and players but it was Fairlands resilience that gave them the win.
