Lambe Scores In 3-1 Loss To Southend United

September 5, 2018

Bermuda’s Reggie Lambe scored for Cambridge United in the 52nd minute as they played to a 3-1 loss against Southend United.

The club’s match report said, “Cambridge United fell to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of League One Southend United in their opening Checkatrade Trophy fixture at Roots Hall.

“Despite several positive spells and a spirited performance throughout the evening from the U’s, a second half brace by Shawn McCoulsky and a late strike by Isaac Hutchinson put the game beyond United who had initially taken the lead early in the second half through Reggie Lambe.

“Southend’s first real opening came when Harry Bunn dispossessed Leon Davies on the right hand side on 24 minutes, and the winger’s cross skewed off the shin of centre back Harry Darling whose interception was judged to perfection as it deflected wide and away from the impending danger inside the U’s area.

“Southend continued to improve although failed to break the deadlock as the interval approached, with Darling forced to deny Shawn McCoulsky a one on one opportunity with Mitov before Bunn, John White and McLaughlin all fired efforts over from inside of the U’s area.

“Paul Lewis and Jake Carroll were introduced to proceedings after half time. United went close to grabbing the initiative in the early stages of the second half when Reggie Lambe’s low cross skidded off the wet surface towards Osadebe, who was unable to shape his shot on target from a promising position eight yards out.

“The 49 travelling supporters didn’t have to wait much longer though, as Reggie Lambe nodded home on the end of Brown’s pin point cross from the left hand side to earn the lead for United on 51 minutes.

“However it was a short lived advantage as Shawn McCoulsky slid in to direct Harry Bunn’s square cross against the inside of the post and into the U’s net four minutes later.

“McCoulsky and Southend made it two on 62 minutes and in similar fashion with Hendrie on this occasion attacking down the left, and delivering a fine cross onto the head of the Shrimpers striker who again made no mistake to score past Mitov.

“The U’s continued to contest well in the encounter but unfortunately for Joe Dunne’s men their League One opponents were in no mood to relinquish their advantage.”
