Orwell 5 Debden Res 3

TWO goals in the last five minutes for Debden skewed the scoreline somewhat in this encounter which Orwell had in the bag after the first 20 minutes.

Goals from player-manager Chris Haynes, Mark Golton and Chay Wilson (two) put the hosts 4-0 up after 20 minutes and it was a lead they never looked like losing despite conceding a goal just before the break.

The second half was more of an even contest as Orwell's energy and enthusiasm met a more determined defence.

Steve Marriott scored for the hosts but they shipped two late goals just moments after missing another good opportunity themselves.

The win takes Orwell to second in BIS Division 4A, just behind Figleaves on goal difference.

Haynes said: "They were actually quite a strong side, one of the best we've played against this season, and that makes the result even better.

"We created lots of chances, put them away and could easily have won the game 6-1 late on."
