The Train travelled away to Ellis Park for a clash against Roslyn Wakari who have had a mixed start but would no doubt present a tough test. The Reds came out of the blocks piecing together some very nice periods of passing and crafted a number of good scoring opportunities. Unfortunately despite this early domination Caversham found themselves 2 nil down after half an hour due to 2 penalty decisions. This took the stuffing out of our boys a bit who probably wondered how they found themselves on the wrong side of the score line. It was also the catalyst to a rather poor and disjointed period before the conclusion of the 1st half. Fortunately we were able to draw one back on the stroke of half time when Andrew Ridden was tripped in the box and Caversham had a penalty of its own. Converted with interest by Seamus we now found ourselves back in the game with a real chance of overtaking the home side. With Roslyn resorting to merely defending their slender lead it was Caversham applying all the pressure. Just when some fans thought maybe the equaliser wouldn't come Sam Collier rose highest to head into the back of net in spectacular fashion. With ten minutes remaining there was only one team looking to win this contest however a resolute Roslyn hung on for the draw. Although rather relieved to get something from the game it was hard not to feel a little disappointed we didn't sneak all 3 points. Good resolve shown from our lads; a trait which we will need to show regularly during the season.
The Reserves continued their winning streak by clinching a 2 - 1 result over Roslyn in a rather tight affair. It took a classy finish by our very own "Andre Pirlo" (Aaron Blaker) in the 17th minute who curled one inside the far post despite the best attempts of the Roslyn goal keep. This was the beginning of a really good period for Caversham who doubled their lead 9 minutes later when Elliot was put through one v one with a hesitant keeper. Despite a heavy first touch Elliot was first to the ball managing to prod past the goal keeper. Caversham controlled the remainder of the half without creating too much. The 2nd half brought about a more determined Roslyn and in the 70th minute pressure told when a harsh penalty decision went the way of the home team. The boys were able to knuckle down for the remainder of the match and held out despite a forceful challenge to remain 7 wins from 7.
Caversham Smeg went down to Mornington 5 - 1 however it was a battling team that went down and had a couple of things gone our way the result could have been a lot closer.
The over 35s team fought hard in a top of the table clash however they went down 2 - 1 to the highgate hobbits.
