Heath Hayes 0 AFCW 5

It was a tale of two halves for AFC Wulfrunians, as they responded to a drab first half with a thrilling second half display that included five goals. There were braces for both Liam Bood and Andy Thompson, with Dave Asbury providing the other goal.


Wulfs had the first chance of the game. Jake Sedgemore picked the ball up in the middle of the pitch and lofted a ball behind the defence; Thompson ran through but saw his shot well saved by the ‘keeper.


The visitors seemed to spark into life in the second half and six minutes after the break they took the lead, courtesy of a strike from Bood. He controlled Sedgemore’s corner, flicked it over the defender and left Mark Wiggins rooted to the spot as the shot flew past him into the roof of the net.


It was another corner from the skipper that saw Wulfs go two in front. Sedgemore floated the ball to the back post and Asbury rose above everybody to head into the corner.


Thompson put his side further ahead with a scorching strike from the edge of the area. Despite missing two seemingly more easy chances in the first half, he pounced on a poor clearance to smash a spectacular left-footed effort out of Wiggins’ reach into the top corner.


Bood added his second with 15 minutes to go, as Thompson this time turned provider. Thompson sprinted behind the defence on the right and cut the ball back from the byline, with his strike partner on hand to apply the finish.


The rout was completed in stoppage time, as Thompson completed his own brace. David Howells played a defence-splitting pass and the striker made no mistake as he calmly placed his shot under the ‘keeper.


After this impressive win, which included a second successive clean-sheet, Wulfs now move on to a short-run of home games; beginning with Dunkirk on Saturday.


AFC Wulfrunians line up: Tipton, Jones, Talbot, Sedgemore, Hill, Asbury, Perks (Marsh 73), Howells, Thompson, Bood, McDonald (Ray 78).
