Six of the best as Ealing dismantle Collingham

Goals: Georges 2 (Pens), Zak, Kai 2, Jake

Ealing turned on the style to equal their best ever result, while returning to the top the league by crushing Collingham at Burlington Danes last night. A positive start was bizarrely rewarded when Ealing yet again benefitted from a gifted penalty – in this case two. The Collingham goalie absent-mindedly left his box, and then minutes later a defender clumsily went in to clear from Isaga. Georges made no mistake on both occasions to put Ealing on easy street. From that point on, the whites were content to sit in and hit Collingham on the break. A swift passing move, started by Zak, went through Hamza, then onto Kai, before Zak finished at the near post with aplomb.

Ealing were not done yet though, and hit their opponents twice more before half time, with Kai netting confidently from the angle, before stroking the ball beneath the keeper when put through on goal. The whites were on easy street, stringing together passes confidently at the back, between Zak, Jamie and Lucas, and probing for further opportunities. The work done at training aimed at possession retention in the right areas of the pitch appeared to be working very effectively. Only carelessness allowed their opponents to make half chances, one a breakaway from a corner which ended in a shot hit high and wide, and then former Ealing student Brent raced onto a through ball, and Sultan made a handy save from his attempted lob.

Five minutes into the second half, Ealing boss Allan Cairns made a swathe of changes to freshen the side while resting many of the team who had worked so hard in the first half. Only Zak and Jamie remained from the outfield players, with Zak moving into a more advanced role. He continued to dictate the play and helped the whites continue to make chances. While pushing for another, they left themselves exposed at the back however, and a Collingham midfielder managed to notch a consolation with a coolly taken finish. In response, Ryan had a couple of shots on goal saved, before Jake used some superb close control to bamboozle a Collingham defender not once but twice before finally getting the reward his skill deserved by hooking home on the turn via the post to make it 6-1.

Ealing still had time to win a corner, from which Zak fashioned an opening for Jamie to crack a volley off the bar. The defender’s overall play during the game merited a goal, but unfortunately, he ended up millimetres away from giving Ealing their best ever win. In truth, Ealing could have scored more last night, but they will be content with another 3 points before next week’s match against Albemarle, which promises to be a bigger test than anything they’ve faced so far this season.

Man of the match – Head and shoulders above the rest, Zak gave an outstanding display, in defending, linking the play and also scoring a goal himself.
