Wyrley Panthers Match Report 9.12.12

Wyrley Panthers v Pelsall Villa Friendly Match

Another fine display by the Panthers resulted in another one-sided victory. The boys played some lovely, slick football with passing and interchanging all over the park.

Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper was back to full fitness, it showed with him netting a hat-trick and he could have scored more having nearly broken the crossbar during the second half. Goals looked as sharp as a razor and was turning defenders for fun, he also showed his confidence by nutmegging the goalkeeper for his hat-trick goal.

Lucas ‘Tibbsey’ Tibbs also got on the score sheet with an absolute cracker from the left hand side of the box. One of the spectators from Villa told his friend that he would not have been able to save the shot, as it was hit with such power and precision.

The final goal of the game was scored by Ben ‘Tank’ Maginness. Tank was full of tireless running, put a real shift in and deserved his goal. It came from the penalty spot after a handball from one of the Villa players. Tank tucked the ball away coolly from the spot to the delight of his Dad who had almost won the penalty himself.

This was one of the Panthers best performances of the season and it is a delight for us as coaches to watch their calm and collected passing style reaping its rewards.

Man of the match in this game was Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper.

Wyrley Panthers v Hamstead Diamonds Friendly Match

The Panthers were playing the Diamonds for the first time and were told beforehand that they had already beaten some of the best teams in the league. The Diamonds players were tall and physical which may have intimidated other teams, but not the Panthers.

The coaches were proud with how the Panthers dug in and battled and fought for the result. The game was a close, physical affair with plenty of strong challenges going in from both teams especially the combative Lucas ‘Tibbsey’ Tibbs who was a colossus in midfield and was run close for Man of the Match by George Whitehouse.

The match was settled by a penalty, which was won and excellently converted by Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington. Whizza was calm under pressure and beat the keeper with a well-struck finish into the corner of the net.

The Panthers held out thanks to some good teamwork and brave, impressive goalkeeping from Lewis ‘the Cat’ Rochelle. The Cat manages to hold his concentration well, as in some games he is rarely called upon and then is very alert when we are hit on the break and is always ready to make those all-important saves. Well done!

Man of the Match was Tibbsey.

The Panthers showed two contrasting styles in these matches. They proved they can play attractive passing football but also that they can compete and grind out results when they need to. The sign of a good team!

The Panthers now remain unbeaten in 22 matches! Well-done lads.

Squad today consisted of: Lewis Rochelle, Sam Scott, George Whitehouse, Ben Herrington, Ashton Cooper, Louis Beasley, Josh Reynolds, Lucas Tibbs, Rio Parkes-Mahoney, Josh Mason and Ben Maginness.
