Following on from an outstanding 5-1 victory against Khalsa, Panthers were keen to put on a show for their ever present supporters. Panthers did not disappoint & soon took the lead through a well worked goal which was executed to perfection by Ben Malpass. Panthers were dominant & could have scored more, some neat dribbling by Sam Steptoe down the right caused concern for the Bullets defence. After 10mins a beautiful piece of football between Kaine Garratt, Sam Steptoe & Ben Malpass allowed Thomas Williamson to score his second of the day & his 8th for the season.
Following half time Panthers were determined not to take their foot off the gas & increased their lead with a screaming right foot drive from Jack Miller-Flynn, recording his 3rd goal of the season. Changes in personnel were forced following injuries to Sam Steptoe, Sam Hadwen & Elliot Kelsey. This spurred on the boys who finished off in terrific style with Ben Malpass notching his 10th goal in 10 league games.
Although Panthers never looked like losing this match this was largely due to the outstanding individual performance of George Bailey in goal, who not only kept a clean sheet but also produced four exceptional saves keeping his reputation as one of, if not the best goal keepers in the league firmly in tact.
