Sumas edge it for double win
With pitch conditions poor following the thaw, Suams found it hard going on a very heavy surface. It was Burghfield who adapted best early on going ahead on 9 minutes. Gradually the Sumas got some rhythm going and Adam McLaughlin had a header rued out which most felt crossed the line. Just on HT, Lucas Cloudeyvlle fed in the live wire Casey Starke and he equalised with a fine cross shot into the corner for 1-1 at the break. In the second period the Sumas dominated possession and on 51 minutes Cloudeyvlle again turned provider with a pass to striker Alex Platt who finished with a left foot strike for 2-1. Sumas threatened in the final period of the game but with conditions worsening couldn't add to their tally settling for a 2-1 away win and a league double over Burghfield. Sumas Man of the Match was Casey Starke.
