Good Day For Daggers - Great Day For England
Saturday's game will be remembered throughout the whole of England for a very long time.  Sadly, we're not talking about the Daggers' match against Scarborough, but the England Rugby Union side's tense win over Australia in the Final of the Rugby World Cup.

The match at Victoria Road was somewhat less inspiring and is unlikely to be talked about next week, let alone in years to come.

However, a win is a win and the Daggers took all three points from a game where the conditions were as much the opponent as the visiting team with torrential rain and a stiff wind throughout the match.

With only three minutes of the game gone, Tris Whitman (left) wasted a great opportunity to open both the scoring in the game and his Daggers' account when he prodded the ball wide from close range.

Shortly after, the visitors themselves nearly took the lead when Scott Kerr tried his luck, only for Tony Roberts to parry the shot and Mark Bentley to clear the free ball off the line.

The Daggers took the lead on 28 minutes when they were awarded a free kick from around 20 yards, roughly central to the goal.  Danny Shipp cracked the ball powerfully into the wall and it rebounded to Lee Goodwin (right) at the right who blasted the ball goalwards.  As the ball approached the prepared 'keeper, Mark Bentley diverted the ball into the back of the net.

The second half started with Scarborough fighting to get back on level terms, but a combination of good goalkeeping and poor finishing kept the visitors out.  At the start of the half, Jacques Williams put his shot over the bar from close range.

Danny Shipp (left) saw his long range drive saved well by Leigh Walker and Tony Roberts saved brilliantly from Colin Cryan.

The visitors did have the ball in the Daggers' net five minutes from time, but the assistant referee had already flagged Mark Hotte as being offside.

Whilst the match was not exactly a classic, it was Garry Hill's side's third clean-sheet in a row and extends their unbeaten run also to three matches.

It wasn't the most convincing of performances from the Daggers though and Hill must be wondering when one of the team's strikers will find the back of the net.
