U9’s Wolves riding high in Division 3

Wolves continued their fine start to life in Division three with two impressive wins yesterday at Shelfield to keep the pressure on league leaders Tipton Youth.

Wolves’ first opponents were a well drilled Silverdale who would prove very difficult to break down. Despite being difficult to break down it was Wolves who asked the most questions of their opponents with Ed causing problems down the left and Lily proving to be a constant threat through the middle of the pitch.

It was Ed who very nearly gave Wolves the lead after he deflected a shot from Callum into the back of the net on 8 minutes. Unfortunately for Ed the use of hands has now been outlawed and goal never stood!!!

Wolves did however break the deadlock four minutes later when Tom set Callum free through the centre to smash the ball home from close range and give Wolves a half time lead. The second half saw a marked improvement from Wolves and the introduction of Josh (who was outstanding in defence) Cameron and Jake gave Wolves a much needed lift. In fairness Wolves were grateful to an impressive Jordan who made several close range saves to preserve Wolves’ lead.

Wolves extended their lead five minutes into the second half with a neatly taken goal by Ben who calmly despatched his shot from just inside the Silverdale box to give Wolves a two goal lead. With seven minutes remaining Wolves wrapped up all three points as Jake won a great challenge to set Lily free one on one with the keeper, the finish of course was clinical.

With the points in the bag Wolves were able to experiment with Regan showing that he could easily take the step up to a midfield role and Ed proving a potential outlet up front.

Wolves’ second game was against a Brownhills team who they had beaten 3-0 just two weeks earlier. Wolves probably approached the game expecting the same comfortable score line just by turning up, so it must have come as a shock to find themselves 2-0 down at half time!

It is the spirit of this team that never ceases to amaze me, so following some gentle encouragement at half time a different Wolves team came back onto the pitch. It took Wolves just four minutes to reduce the deficit when Ed latched onto a shot by Ben at the far post and guide the ball into the back of the net to make the score 1-2.

With fire in their bellies Wolves went all out for the equaliser and got their rewards just three minutes later. A strong tackle by Regan saw the ball fall kindly at the feet of Callum who shot through a crowd of players into the back of the net to make the score 2-2. Having done the hard work by getting back into the game Wolves almost gifted a goal back to Brownhills and if it was not for some tenacious tackling by Jake playing in defence and smart saves by Jordan Wolves could have easily been a goal behind again.

It was however Wolves who finished the game the stronger as they took the lead with a headed goal by Ed following a great cross from Lily and then Lily herself wrapped up the points in the final minute with a well executed goal.
