Stevenage hit Biggleswade for six

STEVENAGE came through their latest pre-season friendly unscathed, beating Biggleswade Town 6-0 at the Carlsberg Stadium.

Luke Freeman gave Graham Westley’s side a 1-0 half-time lead, before Oumare Tounkara (two), Dani Lopez (two) and Matt Ball added five second half goals to complete the rout.

It was a dominant display from the League One side, but if they had taken more of their chances in the first half the scoreline could be been more one-sided.

Stevenage had the majority of the possession in the first half but it took 45 minutes for Freeman to score the first goal. Filipe Morais played a sweeping, cross field pass to Luke Freeman who linked up with James Dunne before striking the ball across the face of the goal and into the net.

In the second half Boro showed their goalscoring intent as Tounkara rose highest to head home a cross Roarie Deacon, who came on as a half-time substitute.

The striker doubled his tally soon after, getting on the end of a chipped through ball from Lopez to score with a brilliant lofted header over Sam Wyer.

The fourth goal came with controversy. The linesman flagged Deacon for offside but the referee over-ruled it. The winger’s shot was saved but Ball followed up to score.
