Well as always when we play Walsall, we never know which team is going to turn out. After just 2 mins it was obviously the Wyrley A team Jody took the throw in which Tash collected and sent in a cracking shot which stung the Walsall keeper’s hand’s as she pushed it away, but only to see Leanne race through and smack it into the net 0-1. 12 mins Kelly battled for the ball and sent a lovely ball over the top for Leanne to run on to and chip the keeper 0-2. 19 mins Leanne made 1 of her trade mark runs down the wing to the by line cut the ball back for Kelly to smack home 0-3. This was obviously a sign for the b team to come out to play, as Wyrley totally switched off and gifted Walsall a goal, a late xmas present from Wyrley 1-3, 35 mins played. 41 mins Walsall came down the left wing and swung in a neat cross for a cracking shot which Lauren had no chance with 2-3 game on.
2nd half was a proper cup game with both teams probing for a goal, Walsall were trying valiantly for the equalizer and Wyrley were doing everything to try and wrap the game up. The defence of Jody Kirsty, Ash and Sarah closed down well and did many legal things to stop Walsall getting through (Sarah tackling and holding on to the ball with her legs to hook it clear, marvellous). Midfield could have been classed as defensive midfield forwards today as Chelsea, Kelly, Tash, Leanne, Charlie Sophie, Sam and Vikki covered all positions. 75 mins Sarah scooped the ball clear for Sam to battle the defence and finish of the attack with a priceless goal 2-4. With a bit of pressure being relieved Wyrley started to pass the ball again and the panic left the game. 88 mins Kelly crossed to Sam to hit towards goal and Sophie to tap over the line 2-5.
Well played girls lets have more of the same next game.
