Webber wraps up the score as the team return to winning ways

READING and District Sunday League Division One leaders Goring United bounced back from their first loss of the season by beating basement side Farley Hill 4-1 at Sheepcot Recreation Ground.

Goring started the brighter of the two teams and created the better of chances before Farley hit the post against the run of play with their only scoring chance in the first half.

With the strong wind in the first half, many balls from Goring sailed to goalkeeper Farley. However, just after half-time, midfielder Ben Rusher fired Goring following a corner kick from Andrew Taylor.

In the second half the rain intensified and the conditions deteriorated, but Goring didn’t let that stop them as they continued to play good football and dominated the game.

Goring added a second after a well-weighted ball from Taylor was calmly finished by Dan Wallace.

Goring looked comfortable at 2-0 but Farley found a way back into the game after a defensive incident saw his striker make it 2-1.

It made the final 20 minutes a bit tense for Goring, but the game was finally secured when a Farley defender headed the ball into his own net, attempting to clear a Joe Webber cross.

With minutes to go, man of the match George O’Brien played a good ball to Taylor on the left, who in turn beat his man and fired in a dangerous cross for Webber to bring the ball back to the House.
