Camden United Reserves 1 Steeple Morden 16
STEEPLE Morden continued their rich vein of goalscoring form and notched up their fifth consecutive victory as they hammered 16 goals past strugglers Camden United.
The huge scoreline means Morden have now hit the back of the net 42 times in their winning run while conceding just two goals, but they had to do it coming from behind after Camden took the lead in the opening minutes.
First to score for Steeple was Dom Holt who prodded home past the advancing keeper on 11 minutes and then a teasing run from Stuart Cooke was ended by a trip in the box five minutes later and Cooke got up, dusted himself down and calmly converted the resultant spot kick to make it 2-1.
