Badgers tame lions

Long Buckby Badgers 7 Northampton Lions 0

Long Buckby Badgers continued their impressive start to the season with a convincing 7-0 victory. Within a couple of minutes Tom Robson unleashed a powerful shot into the corner of the goal.

Buckby’s second goal followed for Ed van der Kuil, his fourth of the season, and two goals from leading scorer Finn Pickard made the half-time score 4-0.

James and Ciaran Bennion, Connor Robson and Rory Jamieson were running the midfield allowing two further goals for Finn Pickard and one to Ed van der Kuil making the final score 7-0.

Northampton never gave up and battled through to the end, but with Buckby’s emerging youngsters now reaping reward for their hard work, there was only ever one winner.
