Sporting Weston Go Second as Wrington Improvement No consulation
In the last few seasons these two teams have been evenly matched but their seasons have gone in different directions this time. Whilst Sporting are playing with confidence and the bounce of the ball, Wrington are finding ways of conceding soft goals and missing chances at the other end. In general play, Wrington matched the home side all over the pitch and were well in the game with Williams,Caulfield and skipper Briggs comfortable in a three man defence. It took a break down the left by James Bailey who played a neat one two with Levi Marlow whose return ball sprung the defence and Bailey’s shot squeezed under the unfortunate James Williams in the Wrington Goal. The visitors threw off the disappointment and responded well but too often, too many touches in midfield meant moves stalled and broke down leaving their forwards frustrated. Even so Rouvais headed narrowly over the crossbar. The crucial second goal was indicative of wrington’s season. A high hopeful cross landed in their penalty area eluding everyone. To the call of ‘Clear it’, Clements panicked and his poor contract laid the ball perfectly on the penalty spot only for the attackers mishit shot to go through Phil William’s legs and bobbled over the keepers despairing dive.
This knocked the stuffing out of the game for a while, but Wrington regrouped at half time. With Tom Lucas adding energy and enthusiasm from the bench, Selman and Rouvais worked hard to get into the game. Tommy Johnson’s shot hit the post and further chances came and went. In a final throw, Callum Briggs went into attack and hit the bar but Sporting responded with two goals of varying quality to seal the win. An over hit cross was spilled in contract and fell kindly for Adam Larson to tap in despite the protestations of the away side. There was no argument with the last goal as a fine move released Larson whose perfect cross was volleyed in by substitute Sharp at the far post. Although harsh considering the balance of play, you can’t argue with the goals. At least Wrington A team secured their first win of the season against Worle, 3 – 0 with a brace of goals from Sammy Fowkes.
