Southgate M1s v Wapping & Men’s round up

October 16, 2016

Southgate maintained their 100% record beating Wapping 3-2 on a very wet Saturday evening at Trent Park.

For the second week in a row, Southgate conceded an early goal, this time it was Wapping’s William Cairns who scored from the penalty spot in the third minute. Once again Southgate bounced back, with John Sterlini equalising seven minutes later, Drew Burkin getting Southgate’s second, before Sterlini added his second before half time.

As the rain came down in the second half, Southgate continued to dominate the early exchanges, however they failed to capitalise on their chances. This allowed Wapping back into the game, with David McLean getting their second goal. Thereafter Southgate were put under increasing pressure as Wapping looked to level the scores, but Southgate hung on to take the win 3-2.
