RESULT FRIDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER

  • GaryHocking changed the title to RESULT FRIDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER

Wendron 5 Redruth 0

Redruth won the toss, and chose to defend the wind first half. Wendron opened the scoring after 3 minutes, a cracking curling effort into the top left corner.

It was difficult for the reds to get out of their own half with the conditions, and also wasn't helped with the loss of Bren Rowe after 10 minutes due to injury (scored a brace last week)

HT 3-0 Wendron

Wind died down, but still had an influence in the second half. Reds saw much more of the ball, but we not able to finish any chances that were created.

Wendron tough to break down, defended brilliantly and took their chances when they came, in the last few minutes to make it 5-0.

Congratulations to them, and thank you for your hospitality after the match.

Wendron 5 - 0 Redruth 

Friday night CWFL football is a rare treat so the trip to Underlane was a “must” despite the wet and windy conditions. Wendron in their first two fixtures had scored none and conceded eleven, Redruth scored five and conceded eight, so goals were pretty much guaranteed.

The first half was definitely Wendron’s. They had a very strong wind behind them - some of the Redruth keeper’s clearances were being blown back into her own box - and the torrential rain on their backs. They opened the scoring with an absolute pile driver from 30 yards in the 4th minute (I don’t have player names unfortunately) and continued to dominate possession, scoring a second on 23 minutes when Redruth failed to clear from a corner and from the edge of the box the Wendron scorer drove the ball home through a crowd of players.

On 41 minutes Wendron added a third when a defensive clearance was carried by the wind half way into Redruth’s defensive half. The Redruth keeper initially started to come for it but then hesitated which gave Wendron’s number 8 just the space she needed to run onto the ball and side foot it confidently past the keeper. Despite having less of the ball Redruth battled well throughout the half, but couldn’t breach a Wendron defence that simply wasn’t letting anything past.

Redruth came out much stronger in the second half. Although, cruelly, now that they had the weather behind them the wind had dropped and the rain had stopped, for the first time in the game they had the majority of possession and the game was being played in Wendron’s defensive half. Despite shipping eleven in their first two games though, Wendron weren’t letting anything past last night, their right-sided centre half in particular mopping-up everything that game her way.

After half an hour of dogged defence Wendron slowly began to reassert themselves again and had the best of the final 15 minutes. On 79 minutes Wendron’s number 8 - my POTM - outpaced Redruth’s right back and floated a beautiful cross over the heads of the centre halves to the waiting striker. She still had the keeper to beat but did so with an inch-perfect chip. And then finally in the 84th minute an underhit Wendron goal kick went only as far as the edge of the box and Wendron added their fifth and final goal with a first time strike back past the keeper.

Another really entertaining CWFL match - 90 minutes of high quality football from two teams that gave everything until the final whistle. And full credit too to the man with that whistle - Ian Pattinson - who also had a great game.

First 2 goals and last goal scored by Maisie McCormack. Other two goals by Amelia and Jess I believe.
