First match of the season and  a win for the home team.  After 2 different displays over the last 2 weeks in friendlies, an 8-0 defeat and a 5-1 win, Wyrley’s supporters wondered which team would emerge.

Wyrley started well and had the majority of play 5 mins, Sophie managed to scoop over from 5 yards out. 10 min Camped in the opposition half, it was against the run of play, Prees caught out Wyrley’s defence on the break and scored past a helpless Lauren.  Wyrley continued to press looking for the equaliser.  Leanne shot wide,  Sophie headed over, Kelly I managed to find the keeper.  It looked like one of those days when Wyrley would do everything right except hit the target.  The shot ratio was 10 to Wyrley and 1 to Prees at half time.

2nd half started in exactly the same way, when on 53 mins Sophie battled well in the box, turned and slotted the ball home 1-1.  54 mins Leanne came in from the wing and smashed the ball home 2-1.  Was this the sign that they would start scoring?  65 mins Tash takes a free kick  2 yards outside the box, clears the 4 woman wall and dips in the net 3-1.  This was the sign for Wyrley to sit back and take a breather. Lauren was not unduly troubled and was safe hands when required.  Defenders Jody, Kirsty, Cath and Ash were put under pressure and Jody was unfortunate to concede a penalty.  Prees scored a nice penalty 3-2 and with the wind in their favour Prees continued to press for an equalizer.   Midfield Kelly H, Kelly I, Emily, and Tash were worked hard and pulled out of position on several occasions, Sophie and Leanne battled and chased down everything that came over the top.  Kelly I made way for Jemma, who was unlucky not to score and Kelly H made way for Shelly who battled well on the wing.

All in all not a bad game of football, some nice passing movements and some excellent individual pieces of skill.  More of the same next week at home to Bridgnorth Spartans in the 1st round of the cup.
