Canterbury 1 Anchs 1st xi 4
Anchs visited Canterbury on Saturday and deservedly came away with three points. A good team talk and warm up saw Anchs start the brighter. Forward runs by Callum Harris and Mati Puche created space and this was a telling factor that led to the penalty corner from which Dan Mutton scored. Anchs kept the pressure on and as well as having one cleared off the line Jake Stevens managed to slot home to give Anchs a two goal led. Canerbury did create one glorious chance but a smart save from Darren Richardson kept them out. Anchs made a sluggish start to the second half and were punished from an penalty corner that brought Canterbury back into the game. This seemed to wake Anchs up and within minutes it was 4-1 following a superb counter attack that saw Callum Haris slot home and then a good finish from a penalty corner from Mati Puche. Despite late pressure the Anchs defence of Gary Jackson, Gareth Price, Chris Lack and Rob DIxon held firm to see Anchs home.

Having not played last week Anchs were keen to continue their good form in a local derby against old willies. A good team talk and warm up saw the Game starting evenly with both sides midfields getting stuck in. However it was the opposition who took the lead following a good finish into the bottom corner. Just before half team and somewhat against the run of play Callum Harris equalised. The second half was a game of two halves. The first part was controlled by the opposition who soon found themselves three one up. It could have been more but for a few good saves from Darren Richardson in Anchs goal. The last period of the game saw Anchs up their game and three goals in 12 minutes, from Chris Lack, Elliott Harris and Gareth Price gave Anchs all three points. Next up is Crowborough at home.
