Reserves win 3-2 as team makes most of late season form

posted in: Men, News, Northern League

Cambridge reserves are finishing their 2019 season strongly with their second win in a row.

After beating Northland FC 2-1 the previous week, Cambridge came out of their home encounter with Onehunga Mangere on the right end of a 3-2 thriller.

The game got off to a flying start when Cristian Angulo gave the Reds the lead in the second minute.

Just after the half hour, Devon Andrews doubled Cambridge’s lead.

The sides turned around with Cambridge leading 2-0 but the visitors came out firing in the second half, with Ben Allen reducing the deficit with a goal in the 46th minute.

Angulo reinstated Cambridge’s two-goal margin with his fourth goal of the season, scoring in the 55th minute.

Allen pulled another goal back three minutes later, ensuring the last half hour was tight with either side capable of securing the result.

But Cambridge held firm to take the 3-2 victory.

The Reds’ reserves next game is on Saturday August 24 (12.30pm) when they visit Manurewa AFC in Auckland.
