Kettering welcomed Netherton back to Weekly Glebe today after the sides had a friendly game a few weeks ago with Netherton winning the last encounte 2 - 1, The game on paper looked a good one for a cup game.
The pitch had been well watered last night and the Sun was out - Netherton started very much on the front foot, strong to the ball and sharp in the pass.Kettering should of scored first but the opportunity wasnt taken.
Netherton were playing the much more powerful football and a long strike from 25 yards flew over Ben Westwoods head who had the sun in his eyes and into the goal. 0 - 1
Netherton continued to press and play sharp / Kettering already having to make changes with injuries occuring in the game and by 40 minutes half time Netherton were 0 - 3 ahead.
The second half started and Kettering were much more a presance in the game and this lead to a goal by Alfie Harcombe down the left side created by some great football. The game continued to eb and flow and a mistake in the Kettering defence allowed a 4th goal for Netherton 1 - 4. More injuries occured for Kettering out of a 16 player present squad but Kettering continued to press and play and a great goal came from the right hand side with Alfie running 20 yards to get on the end of a long pass, Alfie attacked the goal line and put a great cross ito the Netherton box for Owen Montgomery to smash an unreal volley into the top of the net 2 - 4. Kettering then missed an open goal with Jacob Waldon blasting the ball over the bar.Netherton then scored a another goal to go 2 - 5 ahead.
The result was a fair one and the best team on the day won the game - Kettering wish Netherton a good cup run, both games that have been played have been realy good competitive games and Kettering look forward to visiting Netherton for another fixture in the future.
