Abbey Hey return to winning ways, after a strong first-half performance secures all three points at the Abbey Stadium.
Darrhyl Mason opened the scoring in the 9th minute of the game, after a great turn from Jordyn Fitton found Mason at the edge of the box, who drove towards the goal and slotted the ball into the back of the net.
Abbey doubled their lead just two minutes later through Elliott Fenton, after a lofted pass from Tremaine Eastwood scooped over the back line and into the path of Fenton, who finished from close range.
After a dominant first half an hour of play, Abbey Hey found themselves three goals to the good, as Fenton scored his second of the game. A cross from a quickly taken corner, picked out the forward who guided the ball past the Foley Meir goalkeeper.
The travelling side would grab a goal back on the stroke of half time, through Tristen Barker, who was picked out at the back post from a long throw-in and headed the ball past Joe Lawton.
The Abbey went into half time leading 3-1, with their first-half performance, marking a much-needed improvement from the last two games.
Abbey Hey continued their dominance into the second half of the game, but it was the visitors who claimed the first goal after the interval. After Jake Dunford brought down his man in the penalty area, the referee pointed to the spot. The Foley Meir captain stepped up and converted to bring the away side within touching distance of a result.
The game finished with Abbey Hey coming out as 3-2 winners against Foley Meir, with manager Terry Hincks saying: “In large spells of the game, we were quality. We just didn’t have that cutting edge in the second half. For me it could have been five or six.”
The lads will be looking to continue their winnings ways as we host Brocton this Saturday at The Abbey Stadium
