Franklin United travelled south to Cambridge last weekend. On a sticky pitch both teams found hard, it was Franklin that took an early lead. Charlie Heather, Franklin’s top goal scorer cut in from the right-hand side and drove a hard low shot into the bottom corner of the net. It was a fierce battle with both teams pressing hard for the victory however it was Cambridge who equalised from a corner ending half time 1-1.
The second half started disastrously for Franklin United. A back pass saw the ball bobble just as the keeper tried to clear and the Cambridge striker put the ball into an empty net. Franklin pressed for the equaliser, but a counter attack ended up with a Cambridge penalty which was converted taking the lead out to 3-1. Franklin once again came away wondering how the points got away but can take heart with great performances from Player of the Day Lachlan Woods-Davidson in the midfield with Liam Whiter a stand out for the Club too.
