Windsor continued their return to form with an impressive 6-0 home win against Badshot Lea.
On a Saturday when this game was the only one to survive the recent wet weather in the entire Combined Counties League structure, Windsor produced a stunning display of slick attacking football to which Badshot Lea had little answer in the 2nd half.
The first half was well contested however, and although Windsor were playing the more incisive football, the game was well-balanced until George Gould worked well to find space in the penalty area after 33 minutes and slotted the ball home giving the young keeper no chance. The goal changed the momentum of the game and it was only two minutes later that Matty Day forced a good save forced from the keeper, low down to his right. Lucas then found space to the inside the area but his first time volley was high and wide.
The second half performance from Windsor was sublime - firstly Lucas was sent clean through, and won the ball in a challenge with the keeper, then took advantage of an undefended goal to make it 2-0.
Half way through the 2nd half and the keeper flapped at a corner from Rob Lazarczuk to give the impressive Chris Ellis an opportunity to cap his latest home debut with a goal which he duly did with a fulminating header. Ok, I was dared to use that word in my match report... put it this way, it was a powerful header! 3-0.
17 year old Eddie Lazarczuk was then introduced as a substitute with about 10 minutes left and his first touch was an exquisite volley as he steamed into the penalty area to get on the end of an inch perfect cross... 4-0, and there was more magnificence to come from the Lazza family as elder brother Rob, recently seen modelling a stylish new fashion in the local newspapers, complete with bowler hat and brolly, produced an overhead kick of precision and power to make it 5-0.
Recent addition Jordan Dowdican then made it 6-0 as he headed home a simple chance set up by Kirby's nod across the area.
A deeply impressive display against a useful team.
