On Saturday the Dale traveled to the Beacon,
A big 3 points they were seeking.
The game it had a nervous start,
It was difficult to tell the teams apart.
Then a pass found Mark Robb,
He beat the Keeper with a deft lob.
1-0 was how it was at the break,
Both teams were scared to make a mistake.
The second half it started better,
The team followed the instructions to the letter.
Play the ball long over the top,
Chase it down and do not stop.
The tactic seemed to work a treat,
Although Beacon were proving hard to beat.
A chance for Robb it did beckon,
He missed the Pen and his Second.
A shot from McMahon showed how it should be done,
Now the match was surely won!
Time still for a strike from Stevie M,
The bottom corner what a gem.
Every one they played a part,
If only they had done this at the season’s start!!!
M.O.M JAMES McMahon.
