RHC V's Ben Rhydding
Saturday 30th September, Rotherham V's Ben Rhydding:
Rotherham's warm up was well underway as Ben Rhydding arrived at the pitch one by one, unfortunately for them however they could only field 10 players. This coupled with the late arrival gave Rotherham a sense of confidence going into the game.
From the start, Ben Rhydding predictably set their 10 players in a half court press which condensed the space in their half when Rotherham were in possession. Knowing their was no rush to score, Rotherham patiently played the ball around to create space. The goals soon began to flow and at half time Rotherham found themselves 6-0 up.
Still haunted by their defending the previous week, the half time team talk focussed on keeping a clean sheet over scoring more goals. Rotherham played the ball around excellently and built up long spells of possession, as Ben Rhydding tired further goals were inevitable. By the end of the game Rotherham were 15-0 up, a brilliant 9 goals coming in the second half. A great team performance from Rotherham, making the most from Ben Rhydding's selection woes.
Scorers: Jack Hartley 4, Mathew Webb 3, Ben Davis 3, Ricky Benton 3, James Thomas 2
