Match Report

Old Wulfs marched on majestically with wins against Adams, Finchfield and a thrilling 3-3 draw with Cannock.

Our now-regular side played like the veterans they mostly are, showing the youth of Adams Grammar how it's done. The schoolboys took the lead early on, but latecomer Ablard took control of the game upon his arrival, and Wulfs never looked like anything but winners. That game finished 3-1, including yet another score from goal-machine Griffiths, with a newly found insanity that can only add to his game, like Mel Gibson in Ransom when he goes a bit berserk.

Finchfield never looked like they would pose a threat, but Wulfs found it hard to score in the opening half of the game, spurning a number of chances. Widdowson and Birch eventually began to pick open the defence though, and the game ended 5-2, with a cameo outfield performance from Pearson in the last minute sadly failing to get a touch.

Jake Rowlands was ready for bed so Pearson donned his kit for the final game against Cannock, hoping to live up to the fine performance from the younger (slightly) keeper.

Cannock meant business, and it took some classic flat-stickery from Brown to deny them early goals. However Wulfs' early goal was matched by a Cannock penalty corner that Ablard almost cleared off the line. The game ebbed and flowed like an ebby flowy thing until Cannock staged a late rally to come from 2-1 down to lead 3-2 with seconds to go. It looked like a familiar hard luck story until Wulfs slotted home a last-gasp equaliser to take a deserved points. Hemmings almost smiled.

Goals were shared between Widdowson, Birch, Griffiths and Ablard in a night of glory.
