South Hykeham v Bishop King
The first Domino’s game of this season took place during half time of the Lincoln City v Barnet game. Both South Hykeham and Bishop King took to the pitch to try and progress into the next round of the competition.
The first shot on goal came shortly after kick off from Logan Watt (Bishop King), which South Hykeham’s goalkeeper saved brilliantly and put it out for a corner. Logan also had another shot which came off his knee from a corner that was perfectly put into the box by Joshua Pickersgill.
South Hykeham then stepped up a gear and bombarded Bishop Kings goal with shots. Jake Burrows had several shots which the goalkeeper saved, went over the crossbar and also hit the post. Other shots came from Brad Hayes and Alex Morley but nothing was going in for them.
The final whistle went and the game ended in a draw. The team to progress into the next round is South Hykeham with the most shots on and off target. Well done to both teams for taking part in a great opening game!
