Kirk Deighton Dynamos travelled to Lawnswood knowing that a point would secure them the title whilst the hosts needed all three to overtake us.
Rhys Hemingway opened the scoring for us in the 3rd minute when he hit Alex Brewer’s through ball low past the keeper. Lawnswood fought back and equalised after a nice spell of passing in the 8th minute. Not giving up, Hemingway showed quick feet, just before half-time, to wrong foot a couple of defenders in the area before shooting over the advancing goalkeeper.
The second half saw the lads play up the slope and it was evident that tiredness may play a large part, however Lawnswood played into our hands a little by constantly playing the ball long and our defenders were able to (usually) get there first! The game was made safe midway through the half when Hemingway completed his hat-trick after a nice piece of play saw him create space to shoot. With time ticking out, we made the game and the title safe when Brewer was first to a deep corner by Mason De Souza and hit a rocket shot from outside the area that was past the keeper and into the net before the custodian could react!
A good match played in the right spirit, with a superb referee who was spot on with all his decisions.
