Wyrley Panthers v Lane Head Panthers Friendly Match

In awful snowy conditions the Panthers peppered the opposition goal throughout the match. In the end, they came away with a draw but could and should have scored 5 or 6 goals in this match.

The Panthers started slowly, probably due to the awful weather conditions, and Lane Head took the lead with their only shot of the match from a quick break. The Panthers continued to battle away but could not get into any rhythm and were trailing at the break.

The second half was a complete siege on the opposition goal. Chance after chance came and went and it looked like the Panthers were going to end the game as undeserved losers. Lucas ‘Tibbsy’ Tibbs hit a post and had his well-struck penalty was saved by the keeper. However, Panthers’ never say die attitude shone through and in the final minutes they finally equalised from a calm finish from Rio Parkes-Mahoney.

Wyrley Panthers v Pelsall Villa Colts Friendly Match

A bruising encounter against a team that the Panthers had not played against previously ended in the Panthers second draw of the day. Again, the Panthers put the effort in but their composure on the ball was not up the high level of the previous week.

However, the Panthers again showed their resolve and that they are certainly a tough team to beat. The Panthers were steady at the back under the stewardship of George Whitehouse and Sam Scott but lacked that fluidity going forward to make the breakthrough.

Another weekend that did not lack effort and maybe was ruined somewhat by the weather conditions.

Well-done Panthers!
