Sway v Gosport Youth
Under 18s loose narrowly at Winchester
14th September - Hampshire Under 18s Division 3
Winchester Castle 2 Sway 0
A much improved performance saw Sway compete strongly against a clinical Winchester Castle at the Hampshire County Council Sports ground. Both sides created plenty of chances with Sway's Josh Thompson shooting agonisingly wide after weaving through the defence. Aiden Lacy came close with a powerful shot before Castle opened the scoring following a moment of brilliance from their midfielder. The home side went further ahead just after the break thanks to an unfortunate own goal following a pin-point delivery from the right. But Sway dominated the second half and went close with a Lacy free-kick and had a good penalty shout when Harvey Kavanagh went down in the box. The performance provides plenty of positives to bring to the next game.
Totczyk hat-trick glory at Merley Cobham
13th September - Bournemouth Hayward Premier League
Merley Cobham Sports Reserves 2 Sway 5
Arriving with a bare eleven and no 'keeper, after Michael Tang broke down on the way, and with the manager unable to get there due to traffic problems, Sway looked set for disaster at Merley Park Road. But thing soon looked up as Matt Hillyar gave Sway an early lead and James Totczyk put them further ahead. Merley put one passed stand-in 'keeper Briggs to make it 2-1 at half time. In the second half, Totczyk scored two more to claim his hat-tick whilst Hillyar made it five to bag a brace.
Alderholt too strong for Reserves
13th September - Bournemouth Hayward Division 1
Sway Reserves 0 Alderholt 6
It was men against boys at Jubilee Field as the Reserves could not contain Alderholt. The lively visitor put the game beyond Sway after 17 minutes with three early goals. Two more followed just before half-time. But the introduction of late arrivals Dan Fairhurst and first team 'keeper Michael Tang (diverted afeter breaking down) steadied the defence allowing just one further goal in the 80th minute, giving the home fans hope of better times ahead.
