Four Oak Pumas 1 v Wyrley Jags 0

The Jags unbeaten start to 2011 is over after a narrow defeat to Four Oaks Pumas in game that created very few chances and a point to each side would have been a fair result!

Wyrley started the brighter when Man of the Match Ollie Cooper went on a mazy run leaving three Pumas players in his wake and crossing from the bye line only for a trio of Jags players to completely fluff the chance, the slightest of touches would have given Jags the lead and set the tone for what would have been a different tie!

This spurred Pumas into life who went about attacking Wyrley with great confidence for the next 15 minutes, some solid defending could only see possession surrendered cheaply on several occasions. Continually giving away the ball is a recipe for disaster and so this proved having conceded another avoidable corner which was then parried away by Jags keeper Josh Price and ‘poked’ in from a goal mouth scramble.

Going behind did little to lift the Jags who were unable to get the into the game and more defending was needed to make sure the goal deficit was kept to one going into half time!

Conditions were made tricky by a strong wind and the Jags had it to their advantage for the second period but their first half form continued, fortunately Four Oaks couldn’t make more possession pay. As the half wore on the Jags slowly started to find their passing game and it wasn’t long before substitute Sam New went close. The Jags were now pushing for that deserved equaliser, the Pumas were not giving in easily but the tempo was raised again after Jack Griffiths took a nasty blow to the head, he very bravely carried on and the whole team rallied in search of the elusive goal but it wasn’t to be and Four Oaks clung on to take all three points which takes them to the top of the group!

The final two group qualifying games have now become ‘cup finals’ as only wins and plenty of goals will boost the chances of going through, a tough task but more than possible!
