A couple of great performances from the Panthers today resulted in two well-deserved victories.
In the first game of the day the Panthers beat Cresswell Wanderers 2-0 and it could well have been many more as the Panthers carved open the Wanderers defence on numerous occasions. The first goal was converted by Sam Scott following a committed tackle from Josh Mason and a great cross from the lively Ben Herrington. The second goal may have to go to the Wyrley Juniors dubious goals panel. A shot from Ben Herrington appeared to be over the line, Sam Scott made sure it was and made sure the keeper was too. Panthers produced a number of other chances before the final whistle blew. Sam Scott beat Ben Herrington to the man-of-the-match award.
In the second game of the day, Panthers won a close encounter against Tipton Youth 1-0. Panthers defended brilliantly with Lucas Tibbs and man-of-the match George Whitehouse impossible to beat at the back. A resilient team performance was capped with a last minute Van Basten style volley from Ben Herrington. The chance was created by a quickly taken goal kick from ‘the Cat’ Lewis Rochelle and a superlative through ball from the creative Sam Scott.
The whole team should be very pleased with their performance with some really positive passing and movement leading to the two victories and four clean sheets in a row. Looking forward to next week already!
