Match Report Telford 3- 6   Old Wulfs Having narrowly lost out to Telford 2 weeks ago Old Wulfs were determined that this would their time to win. All of Telford goals last time were from short corners and having being able to watch the Telford vs Ludlow game Luke was confident of closing them down. Telford went into a 2-0 lead quickly as they were up to match pace, however a series of short corners allowed Old Wulfs a route back into the game. Minton had the first few efforts and narrowly missed and forced the keeper into a good save. Birch took the third short corner and managed to squeeze it past the keeper. Luke continued to frustrate Telford at short corners closing down the immediate drag and when ever the slip was on Ablard had the near post covered and Al Brown closed off the top of the circle option. Sam was full of running on his debut terrorising the defence and winning short corners. 2-1 at half time. Old Wulfs continued from where they left off in the first half and pressed the Telford defence continually, Griff levelled things early on after some good play by Sam and Ablard. Old Wulfs then took the lead with the goal of the game. Ablard and Griff exchanged a series of quick passes, gliding their way through the Telford defence, Griff facing goal then slipped the ball to an unmarked Ablard and he finished off the move with a low drive into the far right corner. Sam made it 4 when Griff unselfishly passed for a simple tap in at the back post. Birch then got his second of the game and Old Wulfs 5th after another flowing Old Wulfs attack. Old Wulfs then lost their concentration for a short time and allowed Telford a third goal 5-3. With 10 minutes remaining Old Wulfs were in complete control and made it 6-3 with Sam again being in the right place at the right time to slot into an empty net. During Old Wulfs celebration Telford keeper was yellow carded for mouthing off to the umpires. Straight from the restart Telford conceded another penalty corner and lost another player to a yellow card, this time for a bad stick challenge. Whilst Old Wulfs were lined up to take the short corner a frustrated Telford player swore at an umpire and was subsequently carded. At this point Telford decided they had had enough and walk off the off the pitch and conceded the game, still with 7 minutes left on the clock. Old Wulfs were in control of the game through out and were playing some of their best free flowing hockey of indoor so far. Final score 6-3. Goal Scorers: Sam Aldersley (2), Birch (2), Ablard, Griff
