A few games in the local area were called off due to waterlogged pitches but there was no problems at Knebworth

The seated area at The Recreation Ground
The Mighty K's went into this Hertfordshire Senior County Premier Division game on the back of a 12-0 away defeat to league leader's Belstone with their visitors Letchworth Garden City Eagles on a run of five straight defeats (2-3, 4-5, 1-4, 0-5 and 0-4) so both teams would of been looking for a return to winning ways.

The above two photos show the tackle which saw the second booking and sending off for the Knebworth player 
It turned out to be closely fought game on a heavy pitch with all the rain that had fallen locally prior to kick off. Ultimately The Eagles had the better of the chances in the second half and ran out 3-4 winners. The K's were reduced to 10 men with around 15 minutes to go after a second booking which was probably the right decision even though the player got a small touch on the ball and the then 9 men with only a few minutes left when their defender deliberately handled near the centre line. It was a silly sending off and somewhat harsh but the referee explained 'It's a blatant hand-ball...I've got no choice lads'.

including all seven goals scored

Maybe the key was the score was 3-3 when The K's were reduced to 10 men. Knebworth's next game is on Saturday 23rd November when they travel to Standon and Puckeridge. The Eagles also play S&P in their next game at home on Saturday 16th November.
