Brakes march on

Leamington continued their march towards the Polymac Services Midland Alliance championship with a 3-0 win over Studley at a freezing cold New Windmill Ground last night. This was not of Brakes' better performances, but a sign of a championship side is that you win when you do not play so well. For much of the middle part of the game, passes always seemed to find a Bees player and for part of the second half Brakes were pinned backed in their own half by the team fourth from bottom.

The situation was not helped by a display of diving by Studley that would not have been out of place at the local swimming baths. This was largely effective in conning a referee who was not doubt eager to show that he was not a 'homer'. Still, we had some good banter with the Sheepside linesman and some more acrimonious exchanges with a poisonous midget playing for the Bees.

Josh Blake rifled in a shot on 19 minutes to make it 1-0. The next goal did not come until the 84th minute when Jon Adams made it 2-0 in a goalmouth scramble. Ben Mackey, who had initially not played well when he came on a sub, made it 3-0 with a great strike on 88 minutes.
