Windsor Res suffered their 3rd successive defeat in the league as they went down 5-3 to champions Lynchpin.
In a game Windsor Res dominated and lead twice mistakes and late goals cost Windsor.
Windsor Res started slowly as they fell behind after a soft goal from Lynchpin, Windsor failed to clear a free-kick which allowed the Lynchpin winger to fire towards goal his weak effort squirmed past the returning Windsor keeper Jamal Richmond. Windsor responded in spirited fashion and went close through Jermaine Payne but he saw his shot saved by the Lynchpin keeper, it wasnt long before Windsor got on the scoresheet as Lynchpin failed to clear a Owen Richardson cross the ball fell invitingly for Jay Thompson who with an aid of a deflection saw his strike go straight through the Lynchpin keeper. Windsor were rampant and kept the pressure on and moments before half time took the lead again the same two were involved as Richardson was causing issues this time Payne made a great run and set up Thompson who again fired past the Lynchpin keeper with a deflected shot. Windsor were the deserved leaders going in at the break.
Windsor made a change as first half hero Jay Thompson was substituted due to fitness issues, and was replaced by Calvin Stewart. Lynchpin fought back and equalised thanks to Josh Carpenter as he came inside beating two challenges and taking aim and saw his effort fumbled into the goal by Richmond who made a poor effort for a save resulting into Lynchpin leveling the score. Windsor however hit back as Cheyenne Cripps set up man of the match Owen Richardson who cut back into right foot and side footed from the edge of box in the bottom corner. Before Windsor could settle as they made changes to personal Lynchpin came back again as Windsor failed to deal with a corner as they Lynchpin striker and new signing Dean Papali got on the scoresheet. Lynchpin were now on the front foot as Windsor were suffering physically and this told late on as a tired tackle by defender Ashley Pugh resulted in a penalty for Lynchpin and Josh Carpenter made no mistake to put Lynchpin in front, before Windsor could react to this Lynchpin sealed the game late on again a tired tackle by Tierney resulted in a penalty for Lynchpin and Carpenter stepped up and making no mistake to complete his hat trick. Windsor Res have a break from the league this week as they travel to Sandhurst Town for a Berks and Bucks Cup tie.
