It was something of a goalfest at Earlsmead this afternoon as the first team played out a 5-5 draw with landlords and hosts Harrow Borough.

It was a game which was full of entertainment but full of frustration for the management of both sides at the lack of defensive quality throughout the game.

The goals were scored as follows

1st minute : Lewis Driver puts Harrow 1-0 ahead, taking advantage of lax defending

5th minute : Jamie Cassel punches a long throw into his own net for the equaliser.

8th minute : Kezie Ibe bundles the ball home from another long throw to make it 2-1 to the Greens.

19th minute : Carl McCluskey flicks home a header from a corner to make it 3-1.

21st minute : Three becomes four as Finbarr Robins fires home a fine free kick.

41st minute : Driver brings Harrow back into the game, thanks to further poor defending.

45th minute : Marc Charles-Smith makes it 4-3 on the stroke of half-time.

59th minute : Adam Wallace finishes clinically as the home side's defence goes missing again. Score now 5-3.

62nd minute : Harrow are just a goal behind again as sub Fejiri Okerabirhie slots the ball home. 5-4.

75th minute. Charles-Smith completes the scoring with the 10th goal of the game.

The result sees the Greens move up a place to 19th, but knowing that much improvement will be needed defensively ahead of next Saturday's game.
