But it just didn't fall our way!
On a difficult pitch, situated under the M4 fly over Wealdstone Under 9 whites took on Spartans Reds. Having beaten them in October we approached the game confidently and got off to a strong start. Good possession led to a number of well worked corners and shots, but we were unable to take the lead. Some solid defending from James, George and Thomas kept them away from our goal and we went into half time 0-0. The 3rd quarter was a difficult one, Spartans getting goals from a corner and a break away before Wealdstone struck back with an attack and shot from Harrison led to a deflection and an own goal. More attacking from Wealdstone led to a few good saves and Harrison hitting the post. In the 4th quarter Spartans got another goal from a quality dribble by their star player, Wealdstone kept pressing and their heads did not go down, but the chances just didn't fall and it was clear that it wasn't going to be our day in the last few minutes when Adam took a shot from outside the area and in cannoned into the bar. Lots of hard work and well done for not giving up. Man of the Match : James.
