On a very cold night in Cheshunt, Dynamos went on the rampage against their higher league position opposition.
After defeating FC Romania 3-0 at home, in what some described as a shock result, Dynamos were expecting a tough battle on the white frosty pitch.
However it was Dynamos that looked the stronger and they made a bright start with Alfie Anderson hitting the post after just 4 minutes. Then Curtis Brown, back on a dual registration, rifled in an unstoppable shot on 6 minutes to open the scoring after picking up a pass from Abu Khan.

On 14 minutes there was a heart in the mouth moment as Prince Madu was adjudged to have pulled their striker back when he was through, but the fact Charlie Jones came out and cleared easily saved Prince from anything more than a yellow card.

Then came a crazy 5 minutes that the Dynamos "Tweeter" struggled to keep up with (trust me!!).
20 minutes - Tom Cove spreads the ball wide to Curtis Brown, his first time shot was saved and Alfi Touceda bundled the ball home from close range. 2-0
23 minutes - Alfie Anderson swings a great corner into the mix, Dave Brown has his attempted blocked but it fell back at his feet and he calmly slotted it past the keeper. 3-0
25 minutes - Martin Lancaster played the ball out to Tom Cover, he raced clear of his marker and smashed a shot on target which the keeper saved, the ball looped up in the air and Abu Khan raced in to head in the unguarded net. 4-0.

...and breathe....

Just over the half hour mark and Fabian Garcia won the ball in the middle of the pitch and found Curtis Brown racing through, could it be 5 before halftime...no, his effort took a small deflection and hit the post and was cleared.
However, 2 minutes later Abu Khan roasted his marker, cut in and hit a fantastic low cross into the feet of Curtis Brown whose deft touch put the ball past the hapless keeper....! 5-0

Half time: FC Romania 0-5 Dynamos

Alfi Touceda went off at half time and James Young came on.
FC Romania were visibly rocked by the first half storm and came out looking to make an impact in the match. Nathan Brownsword and Martin Lancaster both made early blocks as Romania looked to reduce the deficit.
However, after only 3 minutes of the second half, Dynamos were at it again. Abu Khan, again the architect, hit a ball across the box which the keeper missed and Tom Cove was at the back post alone to tap in Dynamos 6th goal...!

64 minutes and Nathan Brownsword got an injury and was replaced by Theo Ransby in the back 3.
A few minutes later and some sustained pressure from Romania finally told and they got a goal. 6-1 Dynamos.

FC Romania did muster a few chances but Charlie Jones was equal to anything on target and the defence held firm.
Dave Brown got a knock with 5 minutes remaining and youngster, Keane Fullwood, came on for the remaining few minutes.

93 minutes and well into injury time, Curtis Brown had a chance for his hat-trick, but the keeper made a decent save but the ball fell to Keane Fullwood who happily accepted the gift and smashed it home to score his first goal for the club. 7-1.

Final socre...FC Romania 1-7 AVDFC
