Melbourn 1 - 3 Barrington
Melbourn will feel quite unlucky to not come away with something from this game. Despite going in at half time two goals down, it was a game of two halves.
Barrington were the better side in the first half, dictating play and creating decent chances. Although it took 32 minutes for them to take the lead, this was followed shortly after by a second. The visitors created a few good chances otherwise but were repelled. Melbourn had rare moments but were mostly resilient in defence.
Melbourn came out for the second half in determined mood though. Games were raised all over the park and the visitors looked much less comfortable. Top scorer Keiran Butler opened Melbourn's account early in the second half. Melbourn started to control the game and create good chances. Two particularly resulted in great saves by the Barrington keeper. Despite all the home team's pressure Barrington put the game out of Melbourn's reach with a late penalty from a breakaway move.
The next fixture is at home to Great Shelford Reserves. Saturday 18h January, KO 2pm.
