Rams Man Of The Match: AARON MINHAS
Beaconsfield continued their recent unbeaten League run with a thumping win over neighbours Marlow, gaining revenge for their FA Cup defeat earlier in the season in the process.
After two good away wins in the previous week The Rams were in a confident mood. Aaron Minhas went close on ten minutes with a shot that needed to be saved by The Blues Simon Grant. On 27 minutes, however, Minhas made the most of a quick throw in to float the ball over Grant and it went in off the post to give Beaconsfield the lead. A quality goal from an in form player.
The rest of the first half saw both sides create and miss half chances – Jordace Holder-Spooner brought a save out of The Rams Ravan Constable on 35 minutes and Minhas had an effort scooped off the line on 41 minutes – but generally they were evenly matched.
The second period was a different story as The Rams put the visitors to the sword. On 48 minutes a cross by Andre Costa was met by Minhas but his header went mere inches wide. Two minutes later Jordan ‘AJ’ Ajanlekoko held off three Marlow defenders and fired off a shot that Grant let squirm through his fingers and legs and Beaconsfield were two up.
Both sides then traded periods of possession though Constable was rarely called into action whilst The Rams front line were a constant menace to The Blue defence.
On 83 minutes Costa and Alex Cathline both had efforts on goal blocked but the ball eventually fell to Goldy Capella who spun his marker and fired past Grant. Five minutes later Grant had gone off to be replaced by Oneil Garnes and the sub keepers first job was to pick the ball out of the net as Alex Cathline put in a great cross that Goldy leapt to nod home.
Their was almost a carbon copy of the fourth goal two minutes later when Ollie Jones sent in a great cross that Goldy again met with his head but this time Garnes was equal to it.
This was a great result and a great team performance from an in-form and confident Beaconsfield side. There is a good buzz both on and off the field at present and long may it continue!
Come On You Rams!
