After the Christmas break and bad weather, Woburn and Wavendon Lions Hurricanes needed to get back in the swing of things and a home fixture would hopefully help that.
The first five minutes were all Woburn with some early pressing and clever play, Zac could have scored in the first minute but watched his flicked effort miss.
Zac, Josh, Louis and Juan were really starting to settle and were chasing the ball down trying to create something for the team.
7 mins and the ball is lumped forward by the Shenley keeper only to be intercepted by Dom and after beating a player, plays a clever pass to Joe who sets the front line back on their way.
10 mins – GOAL – Zac finishes it from the left hand side after some clever play from Josh, who crosses to Louis, to Juan who sets up Zac with an easy finish.
Alex was working hard to cover a lot of ground and Panashe and Joe were running midfield.
15 mins – GOAL – It’s that Man again. Louis shows great strength to muscle two defenders and puts it past the keeper.
2 – 0 UP.
Lewis now on for Zac shows some great speed as he pushes the ball past one player and then another but just watches his shot go wide. Good work.
26 mins – GOAL – Callum comes off the bench and seconds later puts the ball in the back of the net to make it 3 – 0.
29 mins – GOAL – Louis is through on goal again after showing great strength to beat three defenders and slips the ball past the keeper. 4 – 0 Woburn
We then needed to be extremely tight at the back and the defence of Panashe, Thomas, Dom and Harry were well organized, Thomas was a rock at the back and cleared the ball to Joe who found Lewis and he was away again.
34 mins – GOAL – Lewis raced down the left wing and hit an in-swinging cross which looked like it was going straight in but Louis was on hand to make sure it did and it was 5 – 0 to Woburn and another hatrick for Louis.
HALF-TIME – Woburn 5 v Shenley 0
4 mins in and a clear penalty to Woburn as Callum caused mayhem in the box and the Shenley player hand balled it.
GOAL – Lewis steps up and converts from the spot.
6 – 0
Shenley didn’t give up though and were trying to get something from the game, but Dom, Harry and Thomas were on their game and were just clearing every chance.
Woburn kept the tempo up with Callum, Jude, Ben, Juan, Louis and Joe a constant threat.
30 mins GOAL – Louie through again and makes no mistake, getting his 4th goal to mark his return from injury and making it 7 – 0 Woburn.
31 mins GOAL – Juan frustrated with a miss earlier on, picks up the ball straight from the centre and takes on six players to make it 8 – 0. An amazing solo goal.
Harry drops into CB from LB and Lewis into LB gives Thomas the opportunity to go up front as a striker. Jude is now running riot on the LM and Joe Abbey running centre midfield.
Shenley attack but Alex races over and makes an excellent slide tackle to deny them.
Shenley then manage to get a decent shot away but Cameron is there to tip it over the bar. An amazing save.
39 mins GOAL – Thomas get’s his goal, fantastic flick on near post from a corner makes it 9 – 0 Woburn and a great start to 2016.
A very impressive performance.
