Brook overcome a hard working Godalming side
An excellent performance from the Brook saw them overcome Godalming Town 4-1 to earn the points that should remove any relegation threat.
In a match of numerous scoring opportunities it was the Brook who took theirs & the visitors spurning several good chances,2 goals from Sekani McCalmon & a goal apiece from Matt Kaczmarek & Dean McDonnell were enough to secure a welcome victory.
It was Godalming who stated the match positively & it required an extraordinary point blank save by home keeper Cameron Kennedy to deny them an early lead in the 10th min.However a minute later Godalming opened the scoring when not for the 1st time this season the Brook defence were left wide open as the ball was played out wide to the unmarked Oldland on the right wing who had far to much time to cross the ball that was not cut out & reached Bobby Bennett free on the left who fired past Kennedy.0-1
The Brook forced a corner on 15 mins but when the kick came across Charlie Cahill's header hit the crossbar and was cleared.The Brook equalized in the 20th min when from a Dean McDonnell free kick out on the left found MATT KACZMAREK who superbly volleyed the ball past
Upward in the Godalming goal.1-1
The Brook were now playing some good football but spurning scoring opportunities.On 25 minutes Spencer Maw pulled the ball back to Harry Carter but his shot went over the crossbar.
The Brook were awarded a free kick on 36 minutes but Dean McDonnell's kick went wide.H-T 1-1
The Brook started the 2nd half as they finished the 1st,on top but unable to add to their score.50 minutes Charlie Cahill hit a fine shot but Upward in the visitors goal made a fine save.
It was the visitors who now dominated possession for the next 10 minutes & on 60 minutes it took a brave save by Cameron Kennedy to keep the scores level.
The Brook finally breeched the Godalming defence in the 73rd minute when a fine run & cross from Darreon Mark found Sekani McCalmon who flicked the ball past Upward.2-1
McCalmon then created an opportunity in the 80th minute for Mark but his shot went wide.The Brook scored their 3rd goal in the 87th minute when Darreon Mark crossed for Dean McDonnell to score.3-1
But credit to the visitors as in the 89th minute a fine shot hit the crossbar & rebounded to safety with Kennedy well beaten.
