|Result||L 4 - 7|
Old Wulfs 4 - 7 Hatherton.
With Colin unavailable and the regular step in also busy Old Wulfs had Mark in goal for a rare cameo, however like some poor attempt at a superhero Marks work called and so stepped up Luke. Luke had no prior experience of indoor and once a malfunction helmet was fixed just as pushback loomed, he was in for a baptism of fire.
Old Wulfs started very well passing the ball around and making opportunities but we're 1-0 down within the first few minutes of the game. Old Wulfs rallied well and from a quick succession of short corners found themselves 3-1 up. The first a slip left to Griff who scored a rare goal in indoor. The second a slip back to the injector, which in this instance was Birchy who deflected in. The third game route one from Wardy. Just before half time Hatherton pulled a goal back but the score was still in Old Wulfs favour owing much to hard defensive work and some key and important saves by Luke.
The start of the second half saw Old Eulfs loose their hard fought lead with some sloppy play, giving the ball away cheaply and leaving Luke exposed at the back and Old Wulfs soon found themselves 5-3 down. Ablard pulled one back for Old Wulfs and with decisions going against Old Wulfs and tiredness creeping in Hatherton extended there lead to 7-4, which was certainly not a score line they deserved. Tutton missed the final chance of note, With Birchy straight from the push back getting into the D and squaring it, with Tutton not expecting to have the pass the ball deflected wide. The game ended 5 minutes early, not to sure why but Hatherton held on for the win.
A good debut for Luke, whilst 7 were conceded it takes nothing away from a good performance by the young keeper. Luke made important saves and was not shy to throw himself in to the mix. Hopefully a building block and learning experience,
Final score 7-4
Griff, Birchy, Ward and Ablard.
