Dynamos Progress in the Vase with a comfortable victory over neighbours Leverstock Green

With Drew Phillips recalled by Bedford and captain Joe Fitzgerald away it was all change again as Keith Mupfururirwa played at centre forward, Roy Byron slotted into the middle of defence alongside Nuredin Lilaj with Dan Mcateer replacing Fitzgerald at right back and Jonny Montgomery returning in midfield.

It was the home side that had the better of the early exchanges playing some lovely football with sharp interchanges that had the away side arguing amongst themselves as Aylesbury kept the ball away from the visitors. It wasn't however until midway though the half that this possession brought chances. After twenty minutes Alfi Touceda dummied a Levy defender on the right but his low ball into the box was well cleared.

The home sides pressure though was building and the first goal game on twenty one minutes, an attack up the right wing saw the ball laid back to Dan Mcateer and his pin point cross was met by one of the shortest players on the field as Keith Mupfururirwa headed the ball home for a deserved lead.

Two minutes later and that lead was doubled in dramatic style, the returning Alfie Gaspar picked the ball up mid way in the opposition half and with nothing seemingly on the young striker smashed the ball into the corner of the Leverstock Green goal, giving the sprawling Carl Tasker absolutely no chance, Gaspar had another snapshot on forty one minutes which stung Taskar's gloves, however it wasn't going to be long until the third came.

That third goal came on the stroke of half time, Harry Scott who had been giving the left back a torrid time all evening, placed a pin point cross into the box which was met by Carl Tappin who volleyd home from close range and that effectively ended the tie

Half Time AVDFC 3 Leverstock Green 0

After that exhilerating first half performance it was always going to be difficult for the home side to maintain the momentum, and in fact what they did was, perhaps fro the first time this season, manage the game and nullify their opponents without ever stretching themselves.

There were few chances in the half but Dan Mcateer did have a shot on fifty seven minutes as the defender cut in from the right flank and fired just wide of the far post. Leverstock did pull a goal back ten minutes from time after a Levy striker was tripped in the box. Jack Stevens stepped up and James Weatherill almost saved it as he got both hands to the ball but only managed to palm it into the net.

The Dynamos progress to the next round on the 14th September when Rugby Borough will be the visitors to Haywood Way. An excellent first half performance, perhaps the best of the season so far.
