Wulfs slip to defeat

AFC Wulfrunians slipped to a disappointing defeat at home to Romulus to bring an end to their two match winning streak.

 

Romulus got off the mark after five minutes with Simeon Colbourne driving into area only for defender Sam Mills to put an arm across his midriff and knock the striker off balance to the floor and the referee had no choice but to blow the whistle for a spot kick. Colbourne himself got up dusted himself down to take the penalty and drove the ball low into the corner giving the keeper no chance.

 

Roms carried on applying attack, but Wulfs started to get into the play and eventually drew level thanks to a fine solo run down the left side and cool finish from Jumaane Meggoe.

 

With the game poised Dean Rathbone came up with the goal to put Romulus back in front. He nipped in to intercept an attempted headed back pass and rounded the keeper before slotting coolly slotted into the empty net.

 

With the half drawing out it was Colbourne again that came up with a moment of individual brilliance. A mazy run in the box turning defenders inside out, the in form forward finished by drilling the ball into the goal.

 

The second half kicked off and it was Wulfs who began to real put pressure on the Romulus back four and soon pulled a goal back when Sam Mills forced the ball home at the far post following a corner.

 

Wulfs then went close to an equaliser when Chris Knight got in behind the visiting defence but his shot crashed back off the upright.

 

Romulus again started to find some much need form and it was that man again Simeon Colbourne who delivered. A lovely passage of passing from the visitors ended with Colbourne direct on goal and the predator was on hand to get his well deserved hat-trick and secure the three points.
