Pegasus Juniors 2 AFCW 0

Wulfrunians’16 game winning streak was halted as they were defeated by Pegasus Juniors. Wulfs’ failure to convert first half chances cost them dearly as two second-half goals for Pegasus gave them the win.

 

Wulfs’ early chances meant that they looked the team more likely to score in the early stages; Jordan Perks’ effort from close range was saved and Kyle Brady’s curling effort shortly after ended up just wide.

 

Pegasus’ ‘keeper, Kia Bond, made a string of good saves to keep Wulfs at bay- the most spectacular prevented Tom Piggott from firing home after Brady had cut the ball back to him.

 

Sam Hunt had Pegasus’ best effort of the first half; his spectacular long range volley shocked Danny Tipton but grazed the post.

 

Pegasus took the lead against the run of play on 57 minutes, Hunt broke quickly down the left and was supported in the box by Kane Kahaki- who eventually applied the close-range finish from Hunt’s excellent cross.

 

AFC had a fantastic chance to equalise through Brady, Richard Palmer’s ball over the defence left him one-on-one; however his volleyed effort was marginally over the bar.

 

Brady again had the chance to equalise when he was put through by Perks, this time his attempted lob of the ‘keeper was palmed away and cleared.

 

Wulfrunians then lost Piggott to a serious facial injury with Pegasus’ Mark Davies also receiving an injury in the collision with Piggott. It went from bad to worse for Wulfs as Perks was also stretchered off two minutes from time. There was one positive for Wulfs’ fans, however, as Andy Thompson made his return from injury as a replacement for Ross Brown.

 

Pegasus finished the game off, as they again penetrated Wulfrunians’ defence on the counter attack. Andy Mowen hit a ball behind the defence to leave Cory Hyde with a simple finish that killed off any hopes of a Wulfs comeback.

 

This result sees Wulfs lose ground on Lye Town in the race for the title. Wulfs had been given the opportunity to move to the top of the table if they won their games in hand on Lye- following their draw with Shawbury United on Thursday- but they missed the chance and now sit five points adrift of the leaders.
