A late shift to Waterhall after cricket stopped play at Patcham Place meant the F&O sand purchased by Pete minutes before kick off wasn't needed.
The sacred turf was used for god knows what last weekend as Tricker cleared some glass and Whitey & Hunt were discussing whether they had found a used sheath as the players warmed up.
There was more fore play then penetration as Skins dominated the early stages. Curry had to be alert in goal as Ridley & Beebee both went close as Bibs couldn't get out of their half.
Despite their pressure early the game tightened up and the first goal was a flash of brilliance from the KoW who surprised everyone by shooting from more than 10 yards away and with his weaker left foot. The daisy cutter was perfectly placed and beat Curry in goal.
The dynamic winger was straight out on pitch after and immediately caused problems as he flashed a ball invitingly across the box. Bibs were definitely back in the game and their pressure was rewarded when Curry who done his best to miss, just kept the ball under the cross bar from the goal line after lively Southwell wing play.
1-1 and it was looking a pretty even game at this point. With half time looming Skins went into the dressing rooms the happier when the rapid Russell just beat Hunt in goal to the ball and finished from close range for 2-1.
Not much in it but Skins went for the jugular and pummelled Bibs like a lubed up arse-hole just after half time. Beebee and Russell were linking up well and they were too hot for Mitchell & Virgo to handle at the back. A Beebee shot was diverted into the goal by Russell who was having a fine game.
3-1 became 4-1 and then 5-1 with some great play on the counter by Skins as bibs continued to enjoy decent possession.
Curry scored his second for 5-2 but Beebee hit an unerring shot past Mitchell for 6-2.
Josh Mitchell then embarrassed his dad by scoring past hime for 7-2 before Southwell got the score back to 7-3.
Tricker scored a disputed 4th but when Pete gives the goal you know it's in so 7-4.
Beebee secured the win with the 8th for Skins who deserved their victory.
Some strong Skins displays from Russell, Harley, KoW, & Beebee but the stand out players for me were Ridley & Wilson at a combined age of 128 were faultless at the back.
MOTM - I'm going to give it to golden oldie Ridley who won most 50/50's and was strong throughout.
