Daventry Town 6 Buckingham Town 2
Saturday, 01 March 2008
Daventry Town made it twenty one wins in succession and in style too after falling two goals behind to the Robins.
Joel McCormick's 23rd minute penalty, awarded afterhe was brought down by home skipper Ady Greatrex, put Buckingham in front and two minutes later Nick Bines added a second for the Robins after cutting in from the left and shooting under keping Joe Melling.
Two goals late in the half turned the contest with Paul Saunders scoring after 39 and 41 minutes to level the score at the break. His first goal was a shot from the edge of the box from Richard Wesley's centre and his second a header from a Ryan Byrne free kick.
The second half was one way traffic as Daventry ran riot. Tom Berwick gave the home side a 54th miute lead with a half volley from a ball over the top, and after Robins sub Reuben Max-Grant headed against the crossbar three goals in the space of seven minutes saw Town cruise to a victory.
Josh O'Grady scored after 73 minutes with a long range free kick, Chris Godwin made it five after 78 minutes, heading in a Byrne corner and Danny Nelson completed the rout ten minutes from the end, turning to smash the ball home from 25 yards.
