Phoenix fall just short in 10 goal thriller
Phoenix started well but couldn't hold on it a thrilling game at the Mayplace.
The game got off to a great start when James Fitzgerald scored after just 4 minutes then improved when Macey Malyon doubled the lead straight after.
Richard Jimoh quickly pulled one back for Ropes before Klaudio Krasniqi extended the lead again soon after.
Jimoh got his second on 21 minutes before Henry Dasofunjo levelled the game before the half hour mark.
Malyon immediately gave the hosts the lead again and the teams went in for half time with the score at 4-3 to Phoenix.
There were three goals in the second half but they were all scored by Bridon Ropes, including a hat-trick for Jimoh, meaning the visitors had claimed a 6-4 win.
Phoenix remain bottom and still await their first point.
Oh well, next game is only against the leaders Welling Town!
