Mansfield Rd 6 Garsington 0
Saturday, 28 September 2013
Mansfield: Jamie Cockfield (2), Luis McGillycuddy, Michael Kottman, Roger Gill, Dan Trinder.
Mansfield Road started the game brightly moving the ball well and quickly stopping any Garsington attack. Around the 15 minute mark a returning Luis McGillycuddy smashed home a volley to make it one nil. The next goal came from a delightful chip from The Road's right back over the Garsington defence and onto the feet of Jamie Cockfield, the goal was never in doubt.
Garsington then upped their game and on another day the striker would have bagged a couple of goals. Fortunately for Mansfield the next goal came for them, Dan Trinder slotted home a penalty, given after McGillycuddy was dragged down in the box. Kottmann completed the first half scoring after Trinder found a pass between the back two.
The second half was a much calmer affair. Garsington battled well but were unable to break down Mansfield. Two more goals followed one more for Cockfield and one for substitute Gill.
