BELVEDERE 1 v 3 WYRLEY JUNIORS
Wyrley worked their socks off during this game and deservingly took all three points, Wyrley started in a determined fashion and didn’t want to treat the game like a Saturday morning stroll in the park, Wyrley took the lead after Karis Foreman won a free kick on the left hand side of the pitch, up stepped Ilora Anderson who took advantage of a swirling wind to strike the ball goalbound, the keeper somehow lost the flight of the ball and Wyrley were one goal to the good. Belverdere are a competitive unit and struck back a few minutes later when a cross from the left fell nicely for their striker to head home the equaliser. Wyrley raised their game and began to win more possession of the ball Hayley Leese and Wyrley man of the match Lizzie Scoines competing well in midfield, Abi Hall latched onto a ball down the Wyrley right, she ran at the Belvedere defence, she beat the full back and hit a low shot just inside the near post to put Wyrley 2-1 up at half time. A well marshalled defence of Jordan Parker, Jaffa, Ellie Whitehouse and Lauren Manton kept Belvedere chances to a minimum in the second half, Danni Biggs and Lucy Wells were willing to work hard for Wyrley up front, they were also prepared to hold the ball up and bring others into the game too, the clinching goal came with just a quarter of an hour to go, A great ball over the defence put Wells through with only the keeper to beat, the keeper blocked the shot well, however Scoines was on hand to steady the ball coolly with her first touch and then hit a shot into the corner of the Belvedere net.
Well done girls a great team performance!
