HARROW BORO 3 NORTHWOOD 1
Dylan Kearney scored twice as Boro got back to winning ways in this Middlesex Senior Cup tie.
The game was a lively affair added to by the back drop of fireworks throughout the evening at neighbouring properties.
Both keepers were tested in the opening minutes. George Moore had already had one good effort saved, but in the 22nd minute he took the ball forward before cutting in onto his left foot & smashing the ball past Sheldrick in the visiting goal.
Both sides continued to make chances, in the 42nd minute George Moore surged forward then sent a perfect cross to Dylan Kearney who converted it to give Boro a 2-0 half time lead.
The 2nd half continued in the same vain, Moore crossing to Moss who acrobatically turned the ball goal wards, Then Moore again crossing for Dylan Kearney to score his 2nd of the night (51 mins).
Northwood were not beaten yet as they immediately, in a carbon copy of the Boro goal, attacked down the right wing & a deep cross was swept home by Kyran Worrell (52 mins).
With just over 20 minutes remaining Steve Baker made a triple substitution bringing on under 23 players Excellence Muhemba (for Shpat Ismajli), Samuel Olanrewaju (for Mark McLeod) & Eric Sowanola (for Ryan Moss), all three performed well as Boro continued to create chances , including Muhemba crashing a powerful shot on to the cross bar. Hafed Al Droubi had to make a couple of decent saves as Boro progressed to the quarter Final.
There is no game on Saturday , so the next match is at Tooting & Mitcham United in the London Senior Cup next Tuesday.
