Ludlow v Old Wulfs

Old Wulfs made the trip to Ludlow where previous encounters had been decided by the odd goal. With the return of some university players, Old Wulfs were displaying their youngest squad of the summer so far. The game never really seemed to get out of second gear with game feeling like an end of season nothing game. The pitch was slow and did nothing for the pace of the game. Despite that Old Wulf moved the ball around well transferring the ball around the back and the midfield chased down and made playing through the midfield difficult. Ludlow went 1-0 through a well placed drag flick, out foxing Aaron in goal.

Old Wulfs had their own chances and numerous short corners, which one was eventually scrambled in the goal. A double slip saw the initial shot saved but the defender on the line clearing held the ball for too long and George forced it over the line. 1-1 at half time.

With the light fading and the weather doing nothing to help (and the absence of any sort of flood lighting) the umpires decided the second half would be shortened to 25 minutes. Old Wulfs continued form where they left off and took the lead when a short corner shot was saved by a defender’s body on the line. Ablard stepped up and buried it to the keepers left. 2-1 to Old Wulfs. 2 minutes before the end of time Ludlow got their equaliser through another short corner this time the first shot was saved but the rebound was put away.

2-2 the final score which was a little harsh on Old Wulfs as they had the better chances and possession in the game, but a good platform to take forward to the match next week against Bridgenorth.
