Year 10 played Wyedean at home on Wednesday 11th March.
The game started incredibly well with pressure being constantly applied to the Wyedean defence. Lakers could’ve gone 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes but weren’t clinical enough. Declan Fissenden came close to scoring but unfortunately couldn’t find the net- he didn’t give up and a great deflected shot was followed up by Luke Jones to put Lakers 1-0 up a few minutes later. The next 15 minutes were a blur with Lakers dominating but unable to capitalise- confidence was high and the belief was that scoring was inevitable and we’d go on to win comfortably. Unfortunately whilst Lakers missed chance after chance Wyedean popped up with a goal of their own against the run of play- then came the typical Y10 panic.
Lakers went into half-time unlucky to be drawing 1-1. In the second half Wyedean had steadied the ship and went on to capitalise as Lakers missed chance after chance. In a game where Wyedean had 4/5 shots they scored 3, leaving our keeper Kane Evans no chance to save any of them, Lakers had well over 10 real goal-scoring opportunities and were left with only 1 goal to speak of. Lakers left the pitch full of regrets but on a positive note there were some great performances from Dec Fissenden, Harry Stacey, Charlie Barnett, Corey Powles, Luke Jones and Jamie Mee.
Squad: Dec Fissenden/Corey Powles/Ben Andrews/Harry Stacey/Charlie Barnett (c)/Mostyn Wood/Jacob Turner/Jamie Mee/Luke Jones/Joe Wood/Nathan Whittington/Kane Evans/Myles Ruck/Brodie Merry/Jack Daw
