Continental Star 1 AFCW 3

A convincing performance from AFC Wulfrunians saw them record a 3-1 victory as they visited Continental Star at Dales Lane. Two first half goals and one in the second was enough for Wulfs, despite a late goal from the hosts.


The visitors had the first chance after just six minutes. Andy Thompson broke clear on the left and squared to Scott Stevenson, but he hit his shot just wide after being one-on-one.


Wulfrunians went ahead after Richard Palmer put a great ball behind the defence; Jordan Perks beat the offside trap, knocked the ball round the ‘keeper and fired in with his left foot.


David Howells doubled Wulfs’ lead 33 minutes in. He was the first to react as the ball bobbled around in the area and he made no mistake as he calmly lifted the ball past the outstretched leg of Ryan Cheshire into the bottom corner.


A great shot on the turn- as he held off a defender- almost saw Thompson add to his side’s lead just before the break. The powerful left-footed effort was dealt with by a strong hand from Cheshire.


Two minutes after the break, he capitalised on some poor play in the hosts’ defence to get the ball on the edge of the area, but his shot struck the post.


Jordan Perks could have added his second 10 minutes from the end. Josh Jones found him with a great ball, but his volley- after controlling with his chest- flew just over the bar.


Jake Sedgemore completed the scoring after Ryan Talbot’s marauding run was ended as he was tripped outside the box. Sedgemore stepped up and curled the free kick into the top corner.


The hosts added a consolation goal with two minutes to go. Josh O’Garro picked the ball up on the edge of the area after a corner was cleared and fired it low and hard into the bottom corner.


Wulfrunians next game sees them host local side Lye Town as they look to continue in their winning ways.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Tipton, Jones, Talbot, Sedgemore, Hill, Asbury, Perks (Robertson 79), Palmer, Thompson (Bood 70), Stevenson, Howells (King 64).
