Game Summary

First Half

A warm welcome to Patric, Colron’s latest recruit. Colron Boys got off to a slow start and today’s visitors Wyrley Juniors (WJ) took full advantage and scored three minutes into the game. WJ continue the pressure and thirteen minutes into the game the referee blows for a penalty. The penalty is converted. WJ now have a two-goal lead. Colron still haven’t found any form in the game and go another goal down two minutes later. After the last goal Colron spring into life and start playing football and the pressure pays off an illegal challenge in the WJ and Colron are awarded a penalty, Jay steps up and scores. With about ten minutes of the half remaining Colron continue to create opportunities and another penalty is given, regrettably it isn’t converted into a goal. Colron go into halftime 3-1 down.

Second Half

Colron start the second half a little better than the first and start to create early opportunities and Benzie scores a great goal eight minutes into the half. This is Colron’s best spell of the match and the pressure creates a series of free kicks inside the WJ half, Bobby demonstrates his dead ball skills with some great free kicks that unfortunately can’t be capitalised upon. The game starts to slip away when WJ score their fourth goal on the game against the run of play. The game is put out of reach with two further goals by Wyrley Juniors giving the visitors a 2-6 victory.
