TFA Bushey vs Wealdstone U8A
Lots of goals to finish the season on a high note
I had been looking forward to this game straight after the previous meeting, we drew with Bushey in January and it felt like they had had all the lucky breaks and we should have won the game. We played Bushey last year and I had the same feeling after that game so I was really hoping that this time round we would be able to get the result we deserved. After a couple of nice sunny days the pitch we were playing on was firm and in good condition and the morning was bright and sunny with a little bit of wind.
TFA Kicked Off. Harry W with a corner played into the box which Troj was first to and scored (0-1). Oliver intercepted the ball in our half moved forward and took a shot from just inside the Bushey half and scored (0-2). Harry W intercepted the ball just outside the Bushey box and had a quick shot well blocked. Oliver with a long throw towards Troj in the penalty area who glanced the ball over the line (0-3). Oliver intercepted the ball in defence and played it out to Harry S who passed it through to Jon, Jon turned the defender well and struck the ball high into the goal (0-4). Oliver with a long throw into the box which found Charlie who struck the ball first time and scored (0-5). Oliver with a long throw which went through to Charlie at the back post and he headed the ball home (0-6). Oliver with a throw which was kicked out, Oliver picked the ball up and crossed to Harry S who finished well (0-7). Owen with a long kick out which came to Jon who controlled the ball and struck it high into the net from the left (0-8). Oliver took a long throw to Harry S at the back post who struck the ball on the volley and scored (0-9). Oliver with a long throw which found Jon in the box who finished well (0-10).
Wealdstone kicked off. Harry S with a cross which was glanced towards goal by the defender and the keeper saved on the line. Owen played the ball to Troj who played in Harry W who cut back onto his right foot and shot which was well saved and came out to Alex who shot against the post. The Bushey keeper kicked a long ball out which Owen got to but the ball broke free and Alex blocked a shot at close range but the striker was first to the ball and scored (1-10). Owen with a goal-kick to Harry S who shot just wide. Harry S with a free kick which Alex touched towards goal but it went just wide. Bushey with a well struck corner and goal (2-10). Harry W with a short corner to Jon who turned and found Oliver who stroked the ball first time into the goal (2-11).
Wealdstone dominated this game throughout and could have won by a much greater margin, after half time I think that the boys did not put in quite as much effort as they did in the first half. Bushey played with a bit more determination in the second half and had at least one or two players in their own half at all times to prevent conceding further goals.
This was a really nice way to finish off the season scoring a lot of goals and having five different goal scorers. The season has been very successful and apart from there being a few blips along the way Wealdstone have played very well and have been improving all the time.
