Under 18s storm past Stoneham in top-of-table clash
Sway 5 BTC Stoneham 1
2nd March - CSYFL Division 1
Another hat-trick from the Club's top striker, Tom Dymond, helped Sway to a difficult victory over title rivals BTC Stoneham. After going behind on two minutes to a well-worked goal the reds faced an uphill struggle against a formidable and sizeable side. Dymond pulled one back on 22 minutes, heading in a long, floating free-kick from Jaq Rashleigh. Stoneham then went down to ten men after Sam Roberts was pushed. Dymond put Sway ahead just into the second half, presented with an open goal after Charley Dukes crossed from the bye line. Dymond claimed his third hat-trick of the season on 61 minutes with a shot from the edge of the box following good interplay. The referee rightly gave himself more paperwork in a feisty game and sent a second Stoneham player for an early shower. George Edwards finally put himself on a score sheet, despite a linesman's flag, smashing the ball into the top right corner. Ben Elliott-Haffenden made it 5-1 when he pounced on a poor clearance with a powerful strike.
Marks' brace helps reserves to victory
Sway Reserves 4 Bisterne United 1
1st March - Bournemouth Hayward League Division 1
With no game for the First Team, the Reserves were able to call upon additional resources, most notably player-manager Dan Marks who provided two first-half goals. Tom Man added a third before half-time while popular bearded school-teacher Andy "Sacko" Saxon added a fourth after Bisterne pulled one back in the second half. With goalkeepers becoming very thin on the ground the Reserves were grateful to Darren Clark who swapped his usual out-field role to make a solid performance between the sticks.
