Kinja Youth B 1 - 6 Wealdstone Youth C
Wealdstone Continue Impressive League Run..
Wealdstone Youth came into today's game looking to keep up an impressive record on the road, with another win against a very good defensive side in Kinja Youth B and extend it to 9 league wins in a row.
The game started brightly, no team had control of the game but we spent most of it in their half on the pitch. An early chance came our way with a scuffed effort from Sean coming off the post and finding its way into the net to give us the lead. The game continued to go back and forth, the few chance we were making came to nothing, Harry was working hard down the centre but couldn't quite make it click. In the middle we weren't linking up well and allowed to much time for the opposition to find their teammates. Some excellent defending from Kavin, Ethan, George and especially Ilyas with some last ditch tackles kept us in the half. Ben R made some very good stops but couldn't do anything when a well taken shot was placed into the corner. We then got right back at them an had a break down the right hand side and a trademark Sean finish gave us back our one goal advantage. We didn't manage to create much in the rest of the half and needed a better showing in the second half.
Half-Time; 1-2 Wealdstone Youth FC.
Second half we did exactly that, the players came out hungry and were straight on the opposition from the kick off, winning all the second balls and not allowing them any time on the ball. The change in formation and tactics paid off as we limited the opposition to one shot off target for the whole half, making it a very boring afternoon for Ben R. Ben S started to find his range, showing his vision and was leading the team better, Kavin moving to the middle gave us more energy in the centre. After putting the pressure on the opposition by boxing them into their own half, we finally extended our lead a ball in from the right from Sean, found Ben at the back post who controlled well and slotted home. Sean then added another assist, this time a corner from the left was volleyed home by Elliott from the edge of the area. More pressure from the team working together as a unit, we created chance after chance but nothing was coming from them. Then another breakthrough, a handball in the area with penalty duties handed over to Harry, slotted low into the corner to mark a milestone (30 Goals), then a solo run beating two players added another for Harry and our 6th of the game. A great team performance and good foundations built for the up coming must win games.
Final-Score: 1-6 Wealdstone Youth FC.
