Game Summary

First Half

The game started with Colron fighting a head wind as well as an improved home team. From the whistle Colron were on the attack creating several half chances and only five minutes into the game Jordan shoots from close range and scores. Colron continue the assault on the Walsall Wood defence and pin the home team deep into their own half until against the run of play Colron get caught with a counterattack and score fifteen minutes into the game. The game now at 1-1 seems to encourage the home team and the remainder of the first half become more of an evenly balanced game. Colron go into half time with the score at 1-1 but can feel a little unlucky not to be leading.

Second Half

The ref blows the whistle to start the second half and Colron are immediately on the attack, Walsall Wood’s stubborn defence are continually under pressure throughout the second half but Colron can’t break the deadlock. Colron continue to probe the home team’s defence and as the game reaches the final stages get nearer to scoring, with six minutes to go Bradley shoots from long range and hits the bar. The match looks destined to be a draw until two minutes of the match remaining Benzie shoots and scores 2-1 to Colron. The boys aren’t finished yet, Colron are awarded a corner, with seconds left on the clock Bobby steps up and fizzes a ball into the near post towards a waiting Ryan who heads the ball into the Walsall Wood net. Colron win the game 3-1 after a totally dominant performance by Colron Boys, well done lads!
