Sporting Khalsa 2 v 6 Wyrley Meerkats (17.10.15)

In a game that featured more Wyrley coaches than a day out at a Wyrley Coaches Coaching Conference, the Meerkats struggled to repeat their recent good form.

Although, going into halftime with a comfortable 3 v 0 lead, this was a fairly lacklustre performance. The only real highlights of the first half were a number of pin-point, near post crosses delivered by Eloise “the engine” Yates, which Meerkats didn`t take advantage of.

With Halloween just around the corner, were the Meerkats now scared of crosses or even worse had Count Dracula infiltrated the Meerkats frontline??

Second half underway and a “worldy” from Abi “ DeLap” Clay found the top of the net to increase the Meerkats lead. The travelling Meerkat army went wild and a scream of “that’s my daughter” was heard as far as Wolverhampton city centre!!

However, there was still plenty of fight left in Sporting Khalsa who began to put the Meerkats defence under a lot of pressure. The home side was now bossing the centre of midfield and creating some good chances. Meerkats work rate was dropping and it was only a matter of time before the home side forced their way back into the game with two well taken goals.

With 20 minutes to go it was game on!!

Further waves of Khalsa attacks were thwarted by some excellent saves from Skye “Loco” Lee in the Meerkats goal. On the touchline Wyrley figure nails were being frantically chewed!!

Meerkats had to dig deep to hold onto their lead and try and keep possession of the ball.

Another quick shuffle of the squad ensued and Meerkats at last started to pass and move, controlling the game and creating chances of their own.

Meerkats now looked back in control and two excellent attacks in the final 10 minutes of the game, were rounded off with some clinical finishing from Erin “the General” Waddilove to wrap up the points for Wyrley.
