Long Throws And Set Pieces 4 Vs Wheldrake 0

4    Snaith

(Match Date: Saturday 11th January 2020)
In very windy conditions (is it ever not gale-force at Snaith) Wheldrake looked rusty after a long layoff and fell prey to the usual Tony Pulis-style aerial barrage of long throws and set pieces from the home team.

Despite playing some decent stuff in the first half Wheldrake found themselves 3-0 down. The first, direct from a corner blown into the net in crazy fashion. The second and third both from huge long throws on a very narrow pitch.

But it was a very even half with Shaun seeing his shot blown by the wind onto the post as he slipped it past the keeper. We also had the ball in the net at 2-0 as Shaun squared a cross to Andrew who had to curl his shot around the defender stood between him and the goal but was amazingly called offside. Then Andrew got through 1 on 1 and shot low into the corner to see it come off the heel of the goalkeeper who'd turned his back and go wide.

HALF TIME : Snaith 3 vs Wheldrake 3

In the second half we found it more difficult to find a rhythm as the wind kept taking the ball away from us. Attacking possession was tough but Kayce and Henry F were magnificent at centre half dealing with so much aerial attack.

Andrew played very well in the 10 slot and Max F broke up the play in the middle. Mark also put himself about and helped cover back.

In goal Henry made some great save in testing conditions, the last of which saw him save a point blank shot bravely with his face.

But Snaith wrapped the game up with a thumping 25 yard effort which sailed wind-assisted into the top corner for 4-0.

Snaith wasted a few chances before we joined in as Kayce unexpectedly found himself with the ball at his feet 3 yards out in the centre of the goal from a corner. However, the ball went sailing over the bar rather than hitting the top of the net.

As the game came to a close Mark cut in nicely and curled an effort to the far post but the keep made a good save.

An unrealistic scoreline based on the balance of play. Perhaps 3-2 or 4-3 might have been a more representative scoreline but Snaith just looked sharper having played far more games in the last 2 months.

Full Time: Snaith 4 vs Wheldrake 0

Men of the Match : Kayce and Henry for immense performances at centre half, covering, heading, clearing and showing strength throughout.
