Borough slam ten past helpless Earl Shilton

FOOTBALL: RUGBY Borough welcomed Earl Shilton Albion to Kilsby Lane for their second encounter this season.

Borough started well, Remae James put the hosts 1-0 up in the third minute, with lots of other chances being created but wasted in front of the goal.

The scrappy play continued until eventually there was a break, and the lead was extended to 2-0 by Alex Webb, slotting home from a Ryan Byrne slide pass.

Earl Shilton were then awarded a penalty for handball, but Dan Flack produced an excellent save to preserve his clean sheet.

Borough penalised the penalty miss by immediately extending their lead when Kane Finney hit the net from a Ryan Byrne flicked ball.

The home side’s fourth goal followed shortly after when Ollie Chater curled a shot home from just outside the box.

The second half started in similar fashion to the first.

Remae James fired home to make it 5-0 before Alex Webb added Borough’s sixth on 58 minutes.

A triple substitution didn’t stop Borough from dominating the game, and four minutes later it was 7-0 when Ollie Chater flicked home from a Jamal Adams cross.

The defenders joined in with the scoring via sub Luke Pritchard, with a superb strike from a one two with Ollie Chater.

Pritchard scored his second in quick succession with a neat turn and finish from just inside the box to make it 9-0.

Borough were awarded a penalty and Ollie Chater stepped up and completed his hat trick as Borough won by ten goals.

Full time 10-0.
