Green Heath 2 v 4 Wyrley Juniors

Wyrley continued their unbeaten run as they won their 3rd consecutive away game running out comfortable winners in the end against what were an unbeaten Green Heath side.

For the second week running Wyrley were awarded two penalties, both won by Josh Griffiths. Wyrley started the better of the two teams on a difficult pitch playing with a good tempo and always looking dangerous.

Wyrley took the lead when the commanding & composed Ashley Gunn pinged a 40 yard through ball beyond the left back for Josh Griffiths to control brilliantly first time, advance  and slide it past the opposing keeper. Matthew Higgs had a great chance to increase the lead following another run and low cross by Griffiths but Higgs’ shot was deflected just round the post. 

Green Heath equalised against the run of play when Wyrley failed to adequately defend a long ball and it was well finished from outside the box giving James Goddard no chance.

Wyrley regained the lead when Jay Brown played the ball in to Matt Moseley who “dummied” for Josh Griffiths to smash the ball high into the net giving the keeper no chance. Dan Bourke had the opportunity to increase the lead further when Josh Griffiths was brought down but Dan hit the ball wide from the resulting kick.

Green Heath then equalised for the second time with a shot from outside the area that took a deflection of Andy Clayton and went in off the post.

The third goal was quality as Matt Moseley received the ball from a throw in, beat the centre half for pace and crossed expertly for Josh Griffiths to rise & head home for his second hatrick of the season.

Wyrley continued to defend the long ball from the opposing keeper with Gunn & Clayton winning everything in the air. As the game progressed and opened up Wyrley took advantage as Josh Griffiths was tripped as he took the ball round the full back and win his second penalty. Mark Whitehouse stepped up & put away the penalty with great composure.

Nathan Reeves & Jay Brown both tested the keeper as Wyrley controlled the last 20 minutes with some excellent play as Joe Waclawski in particular showed great compsure and passing ability with both feet to open up the defence time and again.

Well done lads !
