Mortlake Rangers 3 v 1 NORTH KINGSTON COLTS

Stuart Barrs-James  Monday, January 28, 2002  17:56 GMT

Colts championship hopes took a severe dent at rain soaked Roehampton last Sunday.Both teams contrived to put on a fine display of football on a surface which got worse the longer the game went on,but it was Mortlake that eventually took the spoils.Kingston found themselves three goals down within 20 minutes of the start,in fact every Mortlake attempt at goal found its way into the net.Two defensive errors that you would normally expect to get away with that were punished and an outrageous blocked deflection were Colt's downfall.Even at three down Kingston were the better side on view but were unable to convert their superiority into goals.Mortlake's keeper managed to get in the way of most of the shots on target from Mark England and Mark Mackie while Dan Darby hit the bar and Stuart Barrs-James went narrowly wide on three occasions.This was the pattern for virtually the whole game until Mark England eventually forced a rebound home with 10 minutes to go, and as Kingston threw everybody forward Rangers exploited the lack of defence to draw some fine saves from the impressive Gary Curry and brilliant covering from Nick Christie.Tom Stuckey performed well over the 90 minutes but this was a game that didn't go our way.The day was complete when we were told that Staines Town had withdrawn and our hard earned win from earlier on in the season would now be voided.
