The match could have ended 10-10 there were so many opportunities but Arlesey just managed to convert the extra two goals with Jack Jones saving well from the penalty spot.

Luke Cooper had a great first half in midfield and the defence as a whole did well to keep the score at 2-1 to Arlesey at half time with the Blues goal coming from Robert Stephens to make it two in two for him.
