The Comeback Kids

You could see that Scots were up for this and Woburn started the game off with centre but went backwards towards the defence who were immediately under pressure from the Scots forwards.

The visitors wasted little time in testing out Woburns defence and it looked like a few of the Hurricanes were still waking up.

3 mins – Zac pulls down a scots player in a dangerous position. Scots Free kick taken well but the wind behind it ensured that it sailed past Cameron and left him no chance.

Woburn 0 – 1 Scots

6 mins – Scots tested the keeper again from distance and it was a disappointing shot as Woburn should have done better to close it down.

Woburn 0 – 2 Scots

Scots continued to pile on the pressure whose low drive from the edge of the box appeared to be heading for the corner of the net, but Cameron pulled off a great save to keep Woburn in the game.

Was his the turning point Woburn needed?

10 mins – The home side finally clicked into action and Joe and Ethan started linking up well in midfield with Josh really starting to ask questions of the Scots left back.

Joe gets a great cross in but no one can convert.

Ethan picked up the ball and hit an amazing curling pass splitting the Scots defence, but unfortunately Zac didn’t anticipate the pass and couldn’t finish.

15 mins – Panashe hits a great effort but can’t direct his powerful effort on target.

19 mins – SUB Callum off for Alex.

24 mins – YELLOW – the ref takes a moment from telling everybody they are “foul throwing” and shows Joe the Yellow card.

26 mins CROSSBAR – Woburn were looking a threat every time they went forward and, three minutes later the ball fell to Juan in the box who saw his strike come off the keeper and rattle the crossbar.

27 mins GOAL – Zac pinged a great ball into the path of Juan, who made no mistake in finishing a powerful header.

Woburn 1 – 2 Scot

29 mins CROSSBAR – and Juan again with a fantastic effort but watches his effort saved and onto the Crossbar.

Half Time

3 mins – a dangerous free kick from Scots cleared by the Woburn defence.

5 mins – great save by Cameron to deny Scots again.

6 mins – great work from Alex to stop another Scots attempt attack. 

7 mins – Woburn were now beginning to defend as a unit and Harry was excellent at left back and Dom was consistent in right back breaking attack after attack.

10 mins SUB – Jude on for Josh.

15 mins SUB – Alex off for Ethan

17 mins CROSSBAR – Zac with a sublime and powerful volley rattle the crossbar for the third time today (that would have been some goal).

It was an injury to Woburn striker Louis that was playing a part as Woburn squandered chance after chance and could have been out of sight now.

18 mins – Lewis unlucky as he works some room in the area watches as his effort goes wide.

19 mins – Joe unleashes a powerful strike and the keeper saves.

25 mins SUB – Callum on for Joe (yellow card protection).

28 mins – Harry smashes it just wide.

29 mins SUB – Josh on for Jude.

GOAL – Woburn were rampant, counter-attacking fiercely as their trio of Juan, Josh and Callum constantly switched back and forth to cause all kinds of problems for Scots, and four minutes before the end of the game Callum hit a cross in the box to Zac who finished with a tap in and it was 2-2.

Woburn 2 – 2 Scot

35 mins – Harry again with a great strike but just over.

36 mins YELLOW CARD – Thomas gets his name in the book.

Thomas, consistently strong at the back was linking up well with Panashe who was working extremely hard and covering for the defence superbly.

40 mins – Juan puts it agonisingly wide.

41 mins – Scotts could have nicked the game back in the final minute but some excellent defending from Lewis, Thomas and Dom as the game finishes 2 – 2.

FULLTIME

We paid the price for a poor start but the comeback showed we have fighting spirit.
