BEACONSFIELD TOWN FC 5 CHALFONT ST.PETER 1
Beaconsfield's incredible winning streak extended to seven games as an Aaron Berry hat-trick helped them to "thump" neighbours Chalfont St. Peter.
A relatively even first twenty minutes or so saw both sides 'feeling' the other out with no real incidents of note. However, on 25 minutes The Saints George Fenlon upended Berry in the area and the forward picked himself up to slot home the resulting penalty.
The Rams then took relative control of the game, playing the ball around well and giving the Chalfont defence plenty of work to do. They coped well until the 44th minute when a Ryan Haugh cross from the left found Berry and he fired home for his and The Rams second.
The second period again saw The Rams take the game to their opponents, Charlie Losasso forcing a save out of Rourke Pickford on 46 minutes and Spencer Maw having an effort hacked off the line five minutes later. On 58 minutes, however, The Rams scored again - a Losasso curler smashed off The Saints bar, Ryan Hill put it back into the box and Ollie Jones pounced on the loose ball to smash it into the net.
Berry's hat-trick strike came on 62 minutes when Hill and Haugh combined to send in a teasing cross which Berry backhealed past Pickford, a superb finish from an in-form striker.
Chalfont were really struggling to get any sense of rhythm to their game though the confident Rams gave them little space or time on the ball to get into it. They did manage to claw a goal back on 89 minutes when Rams centre half Lee Rushe misjudged his clearance and saw it fly by Sam Bunting for an O.G. Saints joy was short lived though as a decent cross from Losasso was met by the onrushing Callum Bunting to poke home and complete the demolition job.
This was a really pleasing TEAM performance from Beaconsfield and the three points moved them up to 11th in the table exactly one month after sitting floundering in 20th position. The next four weeks should be really interesting!
