Keens Park Rangers First Team suffered yet another disappointment in the league on Saturday against a strong Knaphill Athletic side.
Despite going in at the break at 0-0 after a hard-fought defensive display, the 5-2 scoreline was a fair result on the pattern of play and this was highlighted by the fact that goalkeeper James Mullin was Man of the Match.
The first half’s incredible defensive efforts were wasted in the early stages of the second, with Knaphill’s centre midfielder given all the time in the world to roll the ball into the corner from 18 yards out.
Keens Park responded well and shortly grabbed the equaliser before taking the lead through goals from Liam Harrision and Owen Stutchbury.
Unfortunately, the Golds’ second goal signalled the start of a crazy 10 minutes, which saw Knaphill score three of their own.
With the game fizzling out, the home side grabbed their fifth late on to succumb Keens Park’s third league defeat in four games.
Unlike the defeat to Windlesham in the league, this result was by no means a disgrace. The players battled well in horrific conditions, but they were undone by several lapses in concentration at key moments, at both ends of the pitch.
