1-2

Terrors


(1-1)

Folkes, OG


Tooting made it three league wins on the trot with another excellent display against a team who had the beaten the   league leaders at the time in their previous home game. Tonbridge had the better of the early exchanges and Matte Pierson saved well from a Joe Turner header in the 6th minute and soon after the Terrors defence made the first of two goal line clearances during the half. The home took the lead in the 11th minute with a long range effort from Joe Turner but it only took Tooting three minutes to get back on level terms when Omar Folkes scored with a fierce low drive after good work by Sandy Cunningham. Five minutes before the break Nathan Elder had a good chance for the Angels but shot across the face of goal and Mike Dixon had an effort saved

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

The first real chance of the second half fell to Xavier Vidal after 58 minutes who had a one on one with Matte Pierson but the Terrors keeper did very well to swart the effort. A minute later Tooting got what proved to be the winner when a fierce Mike Dixon shot rebounded off the keeper and a couple of home defenders into the back of net. The Tooting defence showed real character and resolve in restricting  Tonbridge to any clear cut chances and we ourselves looked very dangerous when attacking. In stoppage time the Angels did create an opening Dan Thompsons downward header bouncing over the  United bar.

Summing up a top drawer performance well done to all the Players, the mManagement  Team and the Fans you were all superb.

Folkestone Invicta


(0-0)



Tooting can count themselves very unlucky not to have got anything out of thematch. They dominated the first half with Chace O’Neill, Mike Dixon and Juevan Spencer all going close with Callum McNaughton also hitting the Folkestone woodwork. The visitors first real effort however nearly produced a goal when Sam Hasler’s fierce free-kick hit the underside of the Tooting  bar. Infirst half stoppage time the Terrors  had a great chance to take the lead when Chace O’Neill was upended in the box Chace got up to take the penalty but fired it over the crossbar.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––


After the break Folkestone started brightly with Ian Draycott having a couple ofreasonable chances. In the 55th minute United were reduced to ten men when Chace O’Neill received a second yellow card and nine minutes later the Kent side got what proved to be the winner when their skipper Callum Davies glanced home from a corner. Twenty minutes from time Mike Dixon latched onto a through ball and shot inches wide, at the other end Matte Pierson made a brilliant save from point blank range to deny Joe Taylor. In the 85th minute Mike Dixon got the ball in the net but was ruled offside and in the final minute

Tooting were awarded a corner which keeper Matte Pierson went up for and from it the ball fell to Matte whose diving header just missed the target. The team can take real heart from the performance which deserved so much more and we are proving what a good side we are.

Tooting turned in a five star display winning this pulsating game by five goals to two with Harrow Borough also playing their part. The Terrors opened the scoring in the 9th minute when Peter Wedgeworth played a deep ball to Juevan Spencer whose pin-point cross was headed home by Dan Clements. Four minutes later Juevan Spencer went on a fine solo run but the keeper made a good stop. At the other end Matte Pierson had to be on his toes to tip over a header from Adam Richards and in the 27th

minute  Matte made another fine save to deny Ryan Moss.


United struck again after 35 minutes when Juevan Spencer played in Peter Wedgeworth who centred for Mike Dixon to smash home. Sixty seconds later it was 3-0 when a Mike Dixon header was parried by the keeper into the path of Omar Folkes who drove the ball in from six yards.


—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––

The second half saw Harrow throw caution to the wind and put on a lot of pressure and in the 58th minute they reduced the arrears with a long range effort from defender George Moore and four minutes later Matte Pierson made a smart save from a Kurtis Cumberbatch free-kick. The visitors then went close again with a fierce shot from Cumberbatch which rattled the Tooting crossbar. In the 74th minute it was 3-2 when a 25 yard George Moore shot ended in the back of the Terrors net albeit with a deflection. Ten minutes from time Harrow were reduced to ten men when Kurtis Cumberbatch received a second yellow card.


In the 82nd minute super sub Danny Bassett made it 4-2 after a splendid flowing move which involved Juevan Spencer and Mike Dixon in the build up. The Middlesex outfit were then down to nine men with their skipper Curtis Ujah shown a second yellow card in the 88th minute. A minute later Danny Bassett rounded off the scoring with a well taken low drive after

another fine Terrors move.  This was a superb team performance, well done to the lads, our excellent management team and the crowd who were magnificentwith a deafening roar when a goal was scored. The result made a real statement, showing the strength of our squad and what a good side we are.

Burgess Hill Town

Dixon

(0-1)



Tooting had a point snatched from their grasp as Burgess Hill continued their unbeaten league record when visiting the Terrors with a stoppage time winner. It was the Sussex side who opened the scoring after 14 minutes with a well worked goal scored by Lucas Rodrigues. Midway through the half Matte Pierson had to make a  brilliant save to deny  ex Terror Aaron Smith-Joseph adding a second. In the 37th minute Mike Dixon forced a good save from the keeper and from the resultant corner Sam Flegg went close.

—–––––––––––––––––—––—––––


The first real action of the second half saw the impressive Dominic Morgan-Griffiths make a great block from a close range shot which looked destined forthe back of the net. This seemed to inspire the Terrors and Mike Dixon made the keeper go full length to keep out his powerful effort.  However in the 63rd minute Tooting got back on level terms with a fine solo effort from Mike Dixon. This seemed to rock the visitors and a minute later their defence got in a muddle with United going close to a second the ball being cleared for a corner.From the flag-kick taken by Peter Wedgeworth the keeper under pressure pushed the ball onto the underside of the bar. In the 70th  minute Matte Pierson had to make a superb save from  Lee Harding’s free-kick  which he could only have seen at the last minute. Nine minutes later Town had a good chance but Smith-Joseph blasted over. Coming on as a sub for the visitors was Pat Harding son of the late Matthew Harding. Just when it looked like honours

would be even the Sussex side won it in stoppage time when James Richmondheaded home  from a corner to break Tooting hearts. On reflection a disappointing result on a cold damp night but the Hillians are a good all round side. We have shown  what an excellent team we are in the last few weeks and just need to take this result on the chin and dust ourselves down for the important games ahead.
