Su­mas pay penalty for early mis­take

Abing­don United 6 Wok­ing­ham and Emm­brook 1

The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

SU­MAS paid the penalty for an early spot-kick miss as they were thumped at pro­mo­tion­chas­ing Abing­don.

Con­nor Har­ris put the hosts ahead, but Sam Lawrence squan­dered the chance to equalise when his penalty was saved by goal­keeper Jonathan Beames.

That al­lowed Abing­don to re­gain the up­per hand and they soon dou­bled their ad­van­tage when Ryan Brooks headed in on 20 min­utes.

Dan Bateman’s men pulled one back when Ge­orge Marsh and Lawrence com­bined be­fore tee­ing up Jake White to net his first goal of the sea­son.

But the joy was short-lived af­ter a de­fen­sive er­ror al­lowed Ana­clet Od­hi­ambo in and he made no mis­take.

Od­hi­ambo then grabbed his sec­ond of the after­noon to put Abing­don 4-1 ahead by half-time to give the Su­mas a moun­tain to climb.

A fifth goal ar­rived for the hosts just past the hour mark when Paul Alder slammed in from a corner and the win was rounded off with a Josh Tooke header late on.

Su­mas sit sec­ond from bot­tom of the ta­ble and go to Chin­nor on Satur­day (3pm). SU­MAS: Davies; Carter, Day, Dean, Broad­hurst; Rob­son (J. Lawrence), Blatch­ford (Byrne), Marsh (Blake); S. Lawrence, Weekes, White. Subs not used: Clarke, Win­ship. At­ten­dance: 111.
