Buckingham IIs have stretched their winning run to 19 games in South Clubs’ League Division 3A after beating Eastcote 3-0.

On an old and bumpy pitch in Ruislip, Buckingham showed their intent from the whistle and started the game at a high pace.

Eastcote defended strongly but conceded a penalty flick after only 6 minutes, which Sophie Tuckett calmly converted.

Kirsty Freshwater added a second four minutes later and Buckinghamappeared on course for a high score but Eastcote defended well until half-time.

The second half was more even but solid Buckingham’s solid defence rarely looked in trouble while Tash James and Alice Rolfe combined to tee up Andrea Freshwater to seal victory.

Buckingham host Maidenhead in the final game of the season this weekend.
