After impressing on their previous away outings ‘The A's’ were looking to make it 2 wins from 2 on the road with this trip over to Redbourne school to face a Dinamo Flitwick side.
With key players missing and a defender in goal, this was always going to be a difficult afternoon for Town, who got off to the worst possible start when a looping Dinamo cross was unfortuntely headed into his own net by left back Ayden Ashraf. The hosts were on the front foot for the first 10 minutes and found themselves twice denied by stand in keeper Khaej Edwards who produced great saves from one on one situations.
Kempston eventually found their feet after 20 minutes when a lovely exchange of passes freed Arkadiusz Boruch who rounded the keeper and calmly slotted home into an empty net for the equaliser. With the game swinging in the balance and neither side offering much, a quick counter attack from Town fell nicely to Nicola Stanchev, who made it 2 goals in 2 games when converting from close range. Another goal for Arkadiusz made it 3-1 to The A's before a goal kick from Flitwick bounced nicely through to the striker who looped his header over the advancing Edwards to make it 3-2 just before half time.
With the lead in hand Town were looking to quickly put the game to bed in the second half and a hat trick goal from Arkadiusz made it 4-2 almost immediately after the break. Now it was Dinamo Flitwick’s turn to score a bizarre own goal when the defender was trying to cut out a cross only to see the ball loop up and over the keeper into the net. 5-2 up game over. Or so it should have been. Dinamo were starting to turn the screw abit more and with 20 minutes left on the clock found themselves in front of goal again to make it 5-3. Digging in deep to try and preserve the lead Town found themselves on the wrong side of a defensive error when an under hit back pass was cut out by the striker who rounded Khaej to make it 5-4. The home side were now on the front foot and found the equaliser when a corner was turned in after a goal mouth scramble.
We now go again next week with our first game at our brand new home Kings field, against higher league opposition Luton Leagrave in the County Cup 2nd round.
