Wolverton Tigermoths 3 Great Linford 2
Really pleased with everybody today. Much more disciplined. We created lots of chances to score goals and had 7 very clear opportunities in addition to the goal we scored in the first half. We eventually went in front about half way through the first half when Mason pounced on an opportunity from a corner kick to make it 1-0 and score his 6th goal of the season.
We conceded before the break following a host of changes to get forward by Great Linford, however, time and time again their players were too eager to get in front of our back 4 and were caught offside. Tyreece made a fabulous save before half time palming the ball over the crossbar to keep us in it at 1-1.
after the break we tightened up more at the back and we found that Great Linford did not create anywhere as many changes as they did in the first half, however they did break and we found Tyreece and their striker clash and the loose ball was eventually turned in by our defender for Linford to go 2-1 in front.
we created again many chances to score through particularly Mason, Ashley and John and they came a good moment whcih saw John down the left flank cut in and pass to Ashley who made no mistake for our equaliser and his 6th goal of the season. we continued to press and were awarded 3 corners in quick succession. the first 2 going into the side netting. Then, with 2 minutes remaining in the game Ashley took a corner from the left side which Swaleh met nicely to wrap the game up at 3-2.
Ben played his first game for us today and did very well (well done Ben). Our other newly registered players (Libbie and Isaac) had good games.
it was a good all-round team performance today and happy to get our first 3 points on the board.
Many thanks to you ALL for you efforts today and thank you for so many parents turning up to support the lads and lassies. Always Good to see !!!
