WYRLEY JUNIORS 2 v 1 DOSTHILL COLTS
Wyrley started slowly in this hard fought game, both teams struggling to get the ball down and play, a hard pitch and at times torrential rain contributing to make playing conditions difficult. A ball down the left found Meg Titley in the box who was unlucky to find her shot covered by the Dosthill keeper, Dosthill used there possession well, a few minutes later taking the lead when there striker found some time and space in the Wyrley box. The final ten minutes of the half Wyrley picked their game up, Lizzie Scoines slotted nicely into centre mid to win more of the ball for Wyrley, a fine pass and move between Lucy Wells and Danni Biggs saw the latter go close with a shot just past the post. Wyrley came out in the second half with a great attitude and a desire to get themselves back in the game, Wyrley got more of the ball but Wells and Alicia Baker just couldn’t find the back of the net. Wyrley got a break when man of the match Ilora Anderson hit her free kick goal bound from 35 yards out, it flew beyond the keeper and into the roof of the net. Wyrley still pressed, but also defended well, Biggs and Wells linked well up front, Wells controlled the ball well on the edge of the box and then hit a superb shot to find the top corner of the Dosthill net to put Wyrley in front. Dosthill pressed forward for the equalizer, this left them vulnerable at the back, Biggs and Wells went close again before the end of the game. Wyrley however took all three points this time around.
Well played every Wyrley player a great team effort.
