Unbeaten Run Continues!
The boys put in an epic performance against a well drilled Springfield side, culminating in a thrilling second half which produced two superb goals.
The first half was a very even affair, with Jake providing excellent cover in goal. Anuj and Tommy starting in defence with Harry, Jack and Finlay in midfield and once again, Archie provided the attacking threat.
Wealdstone went close on a number of occasions and Archie looked hungry to add to his goal tally, but Springfield were well organised and made life difficult for the boys. Jake was called into action on more than one occasion and put together a commanding first half performance. Anuj is starting to look like the finished article in defence as time after time he prevents Springfield from counter attacking with some top draw defending. Jack playing in a more central midfield role this week, combines well with Harry and another chance goes begging.
Wealdstone were left frustrated and the half time whistle blows, 0-0.
The second half gets underway, with Paul making a change in search of that elusive first goal. Dylan comes on in midfield with Jack dropping into defence. The boys push forward and Jack again provides an excellent ball forward which Archie latches onto, sprints forward and the Springfield keeper is forced to make a smart save.
10 minutes to go and Wealdstone start to pile on the pressure. Jake again wins possession in midfield, feeds Dylan who beats his man and shoots from just outside the box which arrows in the bottom corner..... GOOOAAALLL! 1-0.
Springfield look stunned and swarm forward. As we enter the final minutes, Tommy pulls off probably the best tackle of the season to prevent Springfield equalising.
Good kick out from Jake, Harry picks up in midfield, one-two with Archie and thumps a looping shot from outside the box to beat the flailing Springfield keeper.... GOOOAAALLLLL! A corker from Harry 2-0.
A superb team performance, the boys starting to look like a real force now. Notable performance from Jack in midfield, but man of the match goes to Anuj, who put in a titanic display. Well done!
