Keymer & Hassocks II (Home) - Division 2
Result: 5 - 2 (Won)

Scorers: Kevern 3, Mullen, Ranson

The 2nds produced their best performance of the season on a damp Lindfield Common. We were on the front foot straight away with Kevern latching onto Mullen’s raking through ball but hitting his lob just wide with the keeper beaten. Campo was superb down the right; he set up Ranson whose shot was saved before Ranson fed Kevern who shot straight at the keeper. The pressure eventually told as Mullen released Campo who crossed for Ranson to be upended, Kevern stepped up and made it 1 nil from the spot. K&H then got a free kick with pretty much their first foray in to our half, the shot went straight at the keeper but skidded on in the mud and it was poked home at close range after Ellison spilled. The goal against the run of play didn’t really distract us too much as Mullen and Baker were dominating midfield, winning almost every challenge. Campo blazed wide after nice work from Ranson whilst Kevern and Ranson were both denied by the K&H keeper before a Lee corner was headed home by Kevern for 2-1. Despite dominating the game we were only 1 up at the break.

We again started quickly, Campo took the ball down the right from the kick off and found Mullen, and he fed Kevern who was taken out in the box, another penalty and Kevern smashed home for his hatrick. He reserves poured forward sensing more goals with Lee, Ranson and Kevern drawing saves from their keeper. The resulting corner from Campo was met by Mullen who powered home a header for 4-1. Just as the game looked safe, a long balled was miss-judged by Bartlett and Ellison caught the centre forward…penalty. Ellison made amends with a great save but then K&H bundled the ball home from the resultant corner… 4-2. We responded well with Kevern shooting straight at the keeper from 12 yards before Ranson netted a follow up from a Campo shot that the keeper could only parry.

An Excellent performance left many MoM candidates but it went to skipper Mullen for a commanding midfield display.
