Quorn 5 AFCW 1

AFC Wulfrunians can away from their first of two trips to Leicestershire in four days with a 5-1 defeat that was very harsh.
The opening stages of the game were very even with Wulfs having a lot of possession but Quorn creating the games first real chances, first when Ryan Seal fired wide after racing on to Dom Brennan’s flick on and then when Ryan Evans saw his shot from a narrow angle saved by John Bateman.
Joe Daley then shot wide and Nicky Turton fired well wide of the target from a good position as Wulfs began to create chances.
Quorn went close again when Adam Hohn saw his shot blocked on the line after a bit of a scramble from a corner.
It was the home side who opened the scoring five minutes before the interval when a low ball across the edge of the area found George Taylor and his shot on the stretch went in off the underside of the crossbar.
Quorn’s lead lasted just four minutes. Turton closed down the keeper as he attempted to clear a long ball over the top and the loose ball fell to Jake Webb who carried the ball towards goal before firing past the line defender on the line.
Tom Ray then had a great chance to put Wulfs ahead with the last chance of the half when he headed Webb’s corner over the bar after climbing highest at the far post.
Wulfs came out firing at the start of the second half and had three excellent chances to take the lead in the space of three minutes. First Ben Jevons saw his far post headed bounce back off the face of the crossbar and then Craig Gregg twice going close, first when he stretched to convert Turton’s low ball across the six yard box and then when he sent a far post free header wide of the target from close range.
These misses proved costly as Quorn scored two goals in sixty seconds with Evans the scorer of both. First he nipped in ahead of Bateman to Round the keeper and walk the ball into the empty net and then firing low past the keeper after latching on to a ball over the top.
These goal broke the spirit of the away side and Quorn added a fourth goal eight minutes from time with substitute George Bowerman producing a sublime chip when put clean through.
The home side put the icing on the cake with a fifth goal in injury time with Ryan Seal finishing a quick break with a cool finish.
The scoreline was harsh on Wulfs but Quorn gave them a good lesson in finishing.
