LIchfield League U13’s Open Cup Rnd 2

Bloxwich Bullets 5 v 1 Wyrley Juniors United.

Bullets go through to the next round with a well deserved victory to end United’s 8 match unbeaten run. United competed well during the first 20 minutes or so of the game but were a little fortunate to take the lead when  Lewis Hill lofted the ball high over the Bullets keeper and in to the corner of the net. Bullets reacted positively and began to put pressure on the United goal, United were given little time on the ball as Bullets closed down the space and began to move the ball quickly to their speedy and ever aware team mates. It was only a matter of time before Bullets got back in the game and they created three great chances before half time, each chance clinically taken despite great effort from Jack Addison in the Wyrley goal. The second half and United were asked to keep their shape and try to deny Bullets any space, United defended better during this half and can be proud of their effort, but Bullets are well drilled team and they had the lions share of the possession and went on to hit another two goals during the half. United however will rue two clear cut opportunities which were not taken during this half, which may have made the final scoreline a bit more respectable. United’s man of the match was John Mcdermott.

Hard luck lads, but you kept plugging away against a skillful, well organised team and can be proud of your efforts.
