Cubo’s eight game unbeaten run came crashing to an end as they were well beaten by league leaders Merrow.
Merrrow took an early lead following poor defending and a deflection that took the ball past the keeper. With the wind and unstable surface limiting any attempt at football Merrow had chances to extend their lead whilst Cubo were struggling to find any fluency and were restricted to hopeful balls over the top.
At 1-0 the game remained in the balance but having had the wind behind them in the first half the home side had to play into it in the second half and struggled to get out of their half.
When Merrow added a second with half an hour to go it looked grim for the Cubans and this proved to be the case. With Cubo pushing on there was plenty of space for Merrow to exploit and they added three more goals to put the gloss on the three points.
A disappointing performance from the home side in difficult conditions but credit to Merrow who were well worth the three points and look to be a far more disciplined and solid outfit this season.
