Emphatic 8-2 win for Burnham United 'A'
6:00am Friday 15th March 2013 in Sport
BURNHAM United 'A' breathed life into their survival battle with an empathic 8-2 demolition of third placed St Georges.
Joe Beattie and Steve Leaf both went close with shots from distance as Burnham started the game well and it was no surprise when they took the lead through Dan Broome as he pressured a back pass to the St Georges keeper who sliced he kick allowing Broom to finish from a tight angle.
St Georges equalised soon after before James Chinnock scored from the penalty spot and then Claude Bitton beat three players to score and extend Burnham's lead at half-time.
Leaf made it 4-1, Beattie finished from the edge of the box to make it 5-1 and then there were further goals for Rob Burns and Bitton to complete his hat-trick.
