Leisure Leagues latest six a side league at the Springfield Community Campus is beginning to develop a familiar pattern as UPTHECORSH, so dominant in their first two games, continued their winning streak in week 3.
However, their opponents in this game Paraolympiakos did put up a fight, for the first half at least. With UPTHECORSH two nil up, Paraolympiakos managed to steal a goal back through Aaron Gray, playing despite a dodgy groin danced through the defence before supplying a tidy finish. For a moment it looked like the underdogs would grab something from the game when stand in Billy Gleed ran the length of the pitch, turning this way and that before creating himself an opening. Unfortunately the finish could not match the skill it took to create and the ball went narrowly wide. This scare forced UPTHECORSH to move into a different gear and they never looked back. Paraolympiakos left too much space at the back and UPTHECORSH's strikers were able to move in and find the net with deadly accuracy, especially Ben Selman and John Bazley who each bagged two goals in a comfotable 6-1. The question now is, can anyone stop them from claiming a 100% record in the league?

The second game saw Corsham Eagles, who disappointed in their first two games, turn up with a lot of fresh faces and most importantly a goal keeper. The team was unrecognisable from the first two games and played some wonderful attacking football even if they were at times guilty of overplaying and trying to score sweaty FIFA goals. The pick of the bunch was a lovely crafted goal from Arron Masson. The ball was played out to him from Edd Sibbick before he fired his shot low and hard through the keepers legs. Real Sham did still have chances to score but again were guilty of missing good chances in front of goal. They desperately need their talismanic captain back so that they can start to get some points on the board.

The final game was an entertaining encounter between FC Chippenham and Hampton's Heros. Hampton's Heros had the lion share of possession and were comfortable moving the ball around. They created plenty of chances and will be wondering how they didn't score more. The reason was obvious to all those watching. They came up against the mightily impressive Amey Carter who threw herself at everything and was clearly the stand out goal keeper of the night. Unfortunately, her team mates let her down at the other end of the pitch and what could have been a much closer game turned into a one sided affair towards the end. All this means that Hampton's Heros also go into next weeks fixture against UPTHECORSH with a 100% record. Next week one of those records will have to go. Find out next week who that will be.
