Curse of the plastic
By Mark Chorlton
Goal for Riley
Our previous games against Hanwell Town C were a 3-6 defeat, 5 a-side a couple of years ago, an 8-1 home league win, a 1-1, then 6-3 win a year ago and a 6-2 win six months ago.
Goal - Riley
Riley opened the scoring after couple of minutes catching a defender square on the left then firing a low shot across the keeper into the bottom right corner. Gradually Hanwell grew into the game and we failed to clear our lines despite having four defenders between the striker and the goal, 1-1. They then got behind the back line and shot across Filip, who got glove on the ball but couldn't steer it round the post, 1-2. They added a third when again we failed to clear despite multiple chances, Half Time - 1-3.
in the second half we contained Hanwell attacking, Filip making a couple of decent saves pushing the ball out to the edge of the box. Chris rattled the crossbar with a twenty yarder. As a team we struggled to control the ball often over hitting passes and running the ball stright out of play.
There was no MOTM as no one really played above their ability.
