A much needed win (6-4) but had the crowd on the edge of the pitch with the ebb and flow of the game. The Sharks went ahead early with an own goal from a Tom G corner. Super sub Aykan then makes it 2-0 with a smart finish having been set up by Harry before the defence let the Pinner striker have plenty of time in the middle of the penalty area to reduce the deficit to 1.
Some good link up play down the left saw Tom G get his first goal as he ran into the box to slot neatly past the keeper at his near post. Half time was approaching and again the defence went to sleep to allow Pinner another before the break.
Tom G got his second soon after the break with some good attacking play leading to an easy tap in from about a foot. Harry then followed up with a superb individual effort dribbling past 3 players and then lobbing the keeper with his left foot - goal of the season so far.
A mix up in the Sharks box ensued leading to another Pinner goal before Aykan got his second to make the score 6-3. Still 10 minutes left on the clock and it became 6-4 leading to an anxious final period of the game.
Excellent performances from Rory at the back and from Tom G, Andrew and Ben N in midfield allowing the Sharks to record the win.
