Totternhoe Whites 2 3 WWFC - Hurricanes
25th March
Recreation Ground, Castle Hill Road, Totternhoe, LU6 1RG

Spring finally seemed to arrive, with warm sunshine poking through the patchy cloud. Hurricanes certainly had a spring in their step, dominating the early stages, Donny & Louie causing havoc down the flanks, they created three of four early chances before the they finally broke the deadlock, Donny charging down the right to pull back for Joseph to apply a calm finish. Totternhoe just hadn’t been in the game, however Kieron had to be at hos very best with a superb recovery tackle as the opposition striker was about to pull the trigger. Totternhoe were lucky not to be reduced to 10 men a cynical waist high kick on Louie, not even deemed to be a yellow by the Referee. It didn’t deter the rampant Hurricanes, slickly moving the ball around and creating enough chances to put the game to bed. They finally double the lead Jack F, chesting the ball in to Joseph’s path for him to gran his and the teams second.

HT 2-0

Second half started with Totternhoe, after certainly receiving a half time dressing down, upping there intensity, however they were no match for the away side, who were moving the ball around them with relative ease. They added a third Donny again driving down the right to clip his shot over the ‘keeper. Louie then saw his lobbed shot canon back off the bar, after a superb one two passing move, it would have taken the Hurricanes four goals clear and they surely would have gone on to add a few more, given their absolute dominance of the game. Totternhoe with two thrirds of the game gone hadn’t even had a shot on target. Their first attempt got them a goal a long range shot bobbled in front of Jack E – deputising in goal, he spilled it and the Totternhoe was first to react to smash home depsite Jack’s desperate attempt to keep it out.

The goal gave Totternhoe a lift, they then got an extreme slice of luck with the Referee awarding a penalty for hand ball, after the ball struck an arm in the box. Jack E, hobbling at this point somehow flung himself to his left and got a hand to the well struck penalty, and was unlucky not to pull off what would have been a superb save. Somehow there was just one goal in the game. Jack E went down unable to continue, so Louie replaced him in goal for the last 5 or 6 minutes. Totternhoe threw everything at the Hurricanes, but the were reslient enough not offer them up another chance, to finish up 3-2 winners, a scorline which didn’t reflect their complete dominance of 90% of the game.

Scorers: Joseph F (2), Donny

P.O.T.M – Jack E, showed amazing team spirit to firstly go in goal and then secondly bravely go on with an injury, thankfully after a hospital check up, looks like a soft tissue injury.
