Chippenham town ground, sloping down hill leaves managers with the decision to start uphill or down. With Melkshams captain winning the toss the decision was made to hold them playing uphill for the first half and go for the win in the second half. 

The game started with action at both ends of the pitch and both teams having chances, although the arsenal seem to be building toward something, with goal line clearances and scuffles in the Melksham area, the Hurricanes were just holding on. 

Once the Hurricanes came out for the second half, a couple of inspired substitutions saw them break through the opposition's defence, and just 10 minutes in, score the first goal, and just a few minutes later a second forced error saw the second goal .... 2-0. 

Melksham's dominance held through the until the last 7 minutes of the game where Arsenal threw everything at the Hurricanes. The lads held strong and turned each attack into a break, forcing the oppositon goalie in to a performance that got him ~MOM. 

Well done to Rich and the team,
