AFCW 5 Wolves SC 0

AFC Wulfrunians turned on the style to continue their good run with a 5-0 victory over Wolverhampton Sporting. Braces from Nathan Rose-Laing and Kyle Brady, as well as one from Jake Sedgemore, helped Wulfs to their win.


Wulfrunians started the game much the better side with their first chance falling to Tom Piggott who shot just wide on seven minutes. They continued to dominate before taking the lead on 33 minutes when Brady took the ball well from Rose-Laing’s flick on to coolly slide the ball past the ‘keeper.


Sporting’s best chance of the half came from a deflected free kick on the edge of Wulfs’ area. James Quarry’s shot rebounded straight back to him off the wall only for his follow up to fall just inches wide of Danny Tipton’s goal.


The lead was doubled after Michael Robertson’s mazy run won his side a corner. Ashley Burd’s corner evaded everybody except Sedgemore at the back post who was on hand to curl the ball right footed past the outstretched hand of Dan Fletcher.


Rose-Laing’s first goal came from a brilliant link-up between Piggott and Jordan Perks, who exchanged passes on the edge of the area before Perks’ cross was turned in at the back post.


Wulfs added their fourth when Brady added his second on the stroke of halftime. David Howells’ overhead volley bobbled around in the area, causing confusion between the Sporting ‘keeper and Mark Hield left Brady free to poke the ball into the empty net.


Sporting made a half-time change, introducing Luke Pinnock in place of Dom Smith. This proved somewhat effective when Pinnock won his side a free kick on the edge of the area. The resulting kick fell to Jake Keyworth on the edge of the area who couldn’t quite find the target.


Within 10 minutes of the second half, Wulfrunians had completed their rout. Rose-Laing added his second (and Wulfs fifth) when Robertson’s 20 yard strike was parried straight into his path for him to fire home.


‘Keeper Fletcher kept Sporting from being further embarrassed by producing two fine saves to stop Piggott and Howells respectively. Piggott had been put through by Rose-Laing’s first time ball but his effort flew straight at Fletcher who saved well with his legs and Howells’ first time shot was tipped brilliantly round the post just moments later.


Wulfs’ last chance of the game fell to Scott Embrey, whose close range effort was deflected just past the post. This win takes Wulfrunians 6 points clear of fourth placed Black Country Rangers and takes them to within three points of league leaders Lye Town.
