WCFC Big Orange Mens 1sts (1) v Massey (8)
Well we traveled to Massey Uni on Saturday to take one the Massey 1st team on the back of two good sessions this week we were confident of being better than the week previous.
Within the first two minutes we were one down but Dan Aplin answered back in the 3rd minute and finished a good header at the far post to level up the scores .
James Barnes did a hamstring chasing back their quick centre forward and his day was over. Whilst chasing we also conceded another goal and the flow of goals against kept coming 3 then 4 all from long balls which the forward was able to get hold of and finish none for us, although we were trying our best, no chances seemed to fall our way and another PK among the goals.
Second half we continued to press but they were just on us too quick and shut down anything we tried, meanwhile we were still leaking goals 5,6,7,8. Not great but I must say that the back four were doing their best, the communication was better than last week but we couldn’t keep them out, we created our own chances and on another day Ants could have bagged a hat-trick but not today.
We spoke at length after the match about what went wrong and everyone was given the chance to say what they felt and we will address the issues to overcome the last few weeks slump in form and get back on the horse and continue to fight and battle to improve.
Next weekend sees us take on Massey again but in Cup football at Wembley 2pm so get along and cheer on the boys we need your support now more than ever.
WCFC Wrightway Design Hammers (6) v Rivercity Chiefs (0)
Last Saturdays game saw the table topping hammers up against one of the competitions early wooden spoon contenders, the Rivercity chiefs, and it was business as usual for the hammers who swept aside their less fancied opponents with a 6-0 win. Dan Prujean opening the scoring for the day and his goal count for the season with a well taken shot powered into the back of the net. It took 2 of the hammers back 4 to get the next 2 goals with Dylan Howells’ left boot proving too strong and then the crowd erupted as one of Wembley parks favourite sons, Scott Ruby, latched on to a perfect back heel pass from Josh Annabell to calmly slot the ball past the rivercity keeper much to the delight of his adoring fans on the sidelines. A second half much like the first with the hammers dominating territory and possession. 3 further goals to macca, kees and callum and the hammers train just keeps rolling onwards
WCFC Repac Thirsties (1) v Athletic Cosmos (3)
This week saw a strong opposition in the Cosmos come our way. With all their experience and knowledge, it was definitely going to be a hard game, and it proved to be that way, as for most of the first half it was a battle in midfield for possession. Archie Smith hadn’t missed out on leg day, as every long ball that was going his way was met by Archies head, clearing it away. A couple of chances from Sunny Kumar and Russell Fergusson went begging, but it was the Cosmos who got first blood, making it 1-0 at half time.
In the 2nd half played resumed with much the same type of play as the first half, until finally a piece of magic from a couple of the team young boys, Sunny Kumar and Josh Rod made the score 1-1. However as time went on the Cosmos experience became very apparent, and mistakes were made on our half as well, with the final score being 3-1 to Cosmos. Next week we have a tough challenge ahead of us in the form of Marist Celtic.
